Kings-Canucks: Kings lead 4-2 after two periods

Luongo_300 Good-bye Bobby Lou.

That would be Canada's Olympic gold-medal winning goalie Roberto Luongo, who was pulled in the second period after giving up goals on consecutive shots. Brad Richardson's unassisted goal gave the Kings a 4-1 lead at 13:21 of the second and that was it for Luongo.

Bring on Andrew Raycroft.

Richardson's goal was a rare even-strength goal for the Kings. Seven of their nine goals in this series have come on the power play.

There have been three in Game 3. Drew Doughty's goal in the first period and the other two power-play goals, both in the second, came from center Michal Handzus.

Vancouver's Mikael Samuelsson's late second-period goal, at 14:53, drew the Canucks to within two.

The Sedin twins? Henrik and Daniel, gone missing, it seems.
