Pierre-Luc Dubois scores twice in 12 seconds as Kings beat Wild – Orange County Register
By BRIAN HALL The Associated Press
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Pierre-Luc Dubois scored twice within 12 seconds in the first period, and Cam Talbot stopped 30 shots in the Kings’ 7-3 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night.
Dubois scored for the second straight game, giving him three goals in four games this season. His two scores 12 seconds apart in the first marked the third-fastest two goals scored in franchise history. Ralph Backstrom had a pair of goals six seconds apart in 1972 and Jari Kurri did the same 10 seconds apart in 1991.
Carl Grundstrom and Vladislav Gavrikov each scored their second goal of the season for the Kings, who have won back-to-back road games after going winless in two games at home to start the season. Trevor Moore added his fourth goal of the season, his third straight game with a goal, midway through the third. Adrian Kempe and Blake Lizotte had empty-net goals.
Connor Dewar and Kirill Kaprizov each scored goals in a second straight game for Minnesota. Joel Eriksson Ek added his fourth goal of the season late and Marc-Andre Fleury made his second straight start after a road win at Montreal, stopping 20 shots.
The fourth lines each started the scoring for their respective teams. Grundstrom scored just 2:39 into the game and Dewar answered for the Wild less than four minutes later.
Kaprizov added his second goal of the season, deflecting in a point shot from Jonas Brodin. In the back-and-forth opening period, Gavrikov tied the score by cleaning up a scrum right in front of Fleury.
Dubois, who was acquired in June from Winnipeg in exchange for a second-round draft pick, Alex Iafallo, Rasmus Kupari and Gabe Vilardi, finished the first with a flurry.
Dubois was sent into the offensive zone by a pass from former Wild winger Kevin Fiala and scored between Fleury’s legs. The goal was reviewed as it appeared Dubois tried to kick the puck to his stick, but never managed to get his stick on the puck while being checked by Dewar.
Officials determined that the puck did go off a stick before beating Fleury. Then, with 46 seconds left in the period, Dubois was ready as Fiala intercepted Fleury’s clearing attempt and passed to Dubois for the goal.
Talbot, who played two seasons with Minnesota before Fleury joined the team, made his first start against the Wild since being traded to Ottawa for Filip Gustavsson.
The Kings return home against Boston on Saturday.
