First NHL goal a thrill (and relief) for Kings' Nic Dowd

First NHL goal a thrill (and relief) for Kings' Nic Dowd

 

Who has the Nic Dowd puck? More accurately, the puck that Dowd shot past Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for his first NHL goal. The Kings were fairly sure someone grabbed the memento for Dowd.

 

“I think so. I couldn’t tell you for sure,” Kings left wing Tanner Pearson said. “I think Brownie [Dustin Brown] may have went and grabbed it. He [Dowd] will get that framed up and it’ll be a good picture on the wall.”

 

Said Dowd: “I’m assuming they have it. A couple of guys asked me if it was the first one. I’m sure they grabbed it.”

 

Dowd didn’t have to wait too...
