Kings' Drew Doughty gets two goals on his day off

February 3, 2011 | 10:33 am

Drew Doughty picked up two goals Thursday -- and he didn't even have to go on the ice to do it.

At the Kings' request, NHL officials studied replays from the team's first two goals in Wednesday's 3-1 win over Edmonton, then took the scores away from Ryan Smyth and gave them to Doughty, who was originally credited with assists on a pair of blistering one-timers from the top of the left face-off circle.

Smyth admitted after the game that he didn't touch the puck either time, a confession that played a big role in the scoring change, a Kings official said.
