(Sports Network) – The Phoenix Coyotes will try to rebound from a bad start in
the best-of-seven Western Conference final, as they host the Los Angeles Kings
in tonights Game 2 at Jobing. Ed

.com Arena. You can watch the game live on TSN and TSN
Mobile TV and join our Game Night Blog live NOW. The third-seeded Coyotes played
the first conference final game in franchise history on Sunday night and were
dealt a 4-2 loss by the Kings, who are the eighth seed despite finishing only
two points behind Phoenix for this seasons Pacific Division title. Kings captain
Dustin Brown scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period and
Jonathan Quick made 25 saves to allow Los Angeles to hold on for the 1-0 series
lead. With the victory, L.A. improved to 9-1 this postseason and the club is a
perfect 6-0 on the road. The NHL record for consecutive road playoff wins in one
postseason is seven and was last achieved by Chicago in 2010. The Kings are in
the conference finals for the first time since 1993 after beating top-seeded
Vancouver in five games in Round 1 and sweeping No. 2 St. Louis in the
conference semifinals. Although Los Angeles couldnt breath easy until
Dwight Kings empty-net goal with 48 seconds left in regulation, the Kings
dominated play for most of the night and wound up outshooting Phoenix by a 48-27
margin. The game could have been a blowout if not for another stout performance
by Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith, who stopped 44-of-47 shots. “I thought their
whole team was better than our team. We werent close in that game. We got beat
in every facet,” said Coyotes head coach Dave Tippett. “Hopefully we can take
some lessons and be better.” King scored twice for the L.A., while Anze Kopitar
also added a goal in the Game 1 victory. Quick, meanwhile, rebounded nicely
after allowing a brutal goal from center-ice in the first period. Quick, a
Vezina Trophy finalist, let Derek Morris center-ice slap shot from the right
boards flutter in to tie the game at 1-1 in the first period. “I dont think it
rattled him at all,” said Kings head coach Darryl Sutter. “Its a rare bad goal
against him and our team was resilient enough to battle through it.” The Coyotes
came back from a one-goal deficit twice, but Brown scored 2:11 into the third
before King salted away the victory with his empty-netter. Mikkel Boedker also
scored for the Coyotes, who find themselves trailing in a series for the first
time in this postseason. The Coyotes fell to 4-3 as the host in this years
playoffs and will try to earn a split on home ice tonight before the series
shifts to Los Angeles for Games 3 and 4. The Kings will host the third test of
this series on Thursday. This matchup marks the first time the Kings and Coyotes
are meeting in the postseason, but the Pacific rivals did face each other six
times during the 2011-12 campaign. The Kings and Coyotes split the season series
and three of the meetings went past regulation. Joe
