LOS ANGELES -- Drew Doughty only scored because the puck got away from him near the Dallas net, turning an attempted pass into a low, slow shot that somehow trickled past Dan Ellis. Matt Murray Penguins Jersey Authentic . While the Los Angeles Kings work to re-establish their reputation as a tenacious home team, theyll also take all the breaks they can get. Doughty scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, and Justin Williams had two goals and an assist in the Kings 5-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on Saturday night. Kyle Clifford added a third-period goal, and Matt Greene scored a deflected empty-net goal from deep in the Kings end with 29 seconds to play. Anze Kopitar had three assists in Los Angeles return to Staples Center after going 3-1-0 on a four-game trip. The Kings were solid in just their third home game this season. With eight of their next nine games in downtown Los Angeles, theyre hoping to make some progress in the tough Pacific Division. "What we need to do is find our identity again," Williams said. "When its a tie game or were down a goal, we need to feel like were going to win. The things we did in the first two periods tonight finally paid off." Jonathan Quick made 27 saves for Los Angeles, which has won five of six overall. Doughty had a goal and an assist, and Jake Muzzin added two assists in his return to the Los Angeles lineup after five games as a healthy scratch. Doughty scored just his second goal of the season with 15:18 to play. The $56 million defenceman hadnt scored a point in seven straight games since the season opener, but he easily leads the Kings in ice time with more than 25 minutes per game. "I didnt think it was going to go in, but Ive been getting a lot of good chances on the rush," Doughty said. "The third period is when we want to be good. We want to create that identity at home." Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley scored for the Stars, who have lost three of four. Ellis stopped 29 shots in his fourth straight start in place of injured starter Kari Lehtonen, but gave up two regrettable goals in the third period before Greenes empty-netter. "Even at the start of the third before we got scored against, we had a few shifts where we were real good," Dallas coach Lindy Ruff said. "We just need to become a team that can hold it together a little bit longer, and we have to eliminate some of the big turnovers. Some of them were inexcusable. Those decisions are the ones that have hurt us, especially on the road, and that gives the other team some momentum." After Doughtys goal put the Stars in trouble, Clifford doubled the Kings lead with 6:58 to play, getting his first point of the season on a long wrist shot that handcuffed Ellis. The Kings only scored six goals on their trip, but they know all about grinding out victories after two straight seasons of major playoff success despite a modest offensive attack. None of Los Angeles regular centres has even scored a goal through nine games this season -- not Kopitar, not Mike Richards, not Jarret Stoll. But after earning two shootout victories on the trip, Los Angeles returned home with more than enough offence to beat the Stars, who knocked off previously unbeaten San Jose in their last game. "We gave ourselves a chance to win, but didnt bring it in the third," said Dallas captain Jamie Benn, who had two assists. "We had some good shifts and some bad ones, but you have to have a good shift every time. We cant give up goals, and we have to capitalize on our power plays. Weve got to learn from our mistakes and move on." After Seguin extended his points streak to six games with a goal midway through the first period, Williams scored twice in a 3:01 span late in the period. He got credit for the Kings first goal when Jake Muzzins long shot deflected off his skate in front. Williams then flipped home a backhand over the glove of a prone Ellis during a power play with 27 seconds left in the period. Los Angeles didnt score a power-play goal during its entire four-game road trip, going 0 for 13. Peverley tied it midway through the second period when Benn took the puck around the back of the Los Angeles net. His shot banked off Quicks pads to the far side, where Peverley easily converted the rebound for his second goal in a Dallas uniform. NOTES: Los Angeles scratched F Matt Frattin and D Alec Martinez, altering the lineup used on the road. Colin Fraser and Muzzin were active. Frattin has three assists and a minus-5 rating in his first eight games with the Kings. ... Ellis stopped a breakaway by Richards early in the second period. ... Kopitar, the Kings leading scorer in each of the last six seasons, has no goals, but leads the club with eight assists.Larry Murphy Penguins Jersey .

Bouchard became the first Canadian woman to reach a Grand Slam semi in three decades with her 5-7, 7-5, 6-2 quarter-final win over former No. 1 Ana Ivanovic on Monday. She faces Chinas Li Na on Thursday in the Australian Opens final four. "This is something Ive been doing since I was five years old and working my whole life for and sacrificing a lot of things for," said Bouchard. "So its not exactly a surprise. I always expect myself to do well. Im just happy to have gone through this step. Im not done. I have a match on Thursday. Im just looking forward to that." The semifinal pairing of the 19-year-old Bouchard versus the 31-year-old Li, who won the 2011 French Open, has captured the attention of tennis fans around the world. Li has played two of the last three finals at Melbourne Park. That kind of WTA rep does not bother the confident Bouchard, whose ad-hoc Genie Army of a dozen or so Aussie fans will surely be out in full force for the showcase event. "Lis a great champion, shes won a Slam, as well, its going to be really tough," said Bouchard, playing in the main draw of a major for only the fourth time. "I played her once in Montreal two years ago. We had a close match, one of my first bigger matches. "It will be interesting to play her. I know shes very solid, very good from the back. Its going to be hard, but Im looking forward to it." Beside her tennis, its Bouchards bubbly personality that has captured fan fancy, with commentators already labelling her the next bbreakout womens star. Patric Hornqvist Penguins Jersey. The Canadian extrovert, who confesses to possessing a Type A, get-it-done personality -- especially on the court -- is dealing with the expectations well. "Im a really focused person, really driven. Off the court Im almost impatient in a way," said Bouchard. "On the court Im the same way. I really just want to play my game, be aggressive, take it to my opponent, and not just wait around and wait for opportunities. "I think its a good thing to take my chances when Im on the court." Bouchards not intimidated by the big stage of a Grand Slam tournament, either. "The matches I had last year on the big courts, like (Maria) Sharapova at the French Open, Ivanovic at Wimbledon, just being on those big stages gave me a lot of experience," she said. "Now walking out on centre court in Australia, I feel like Ive been here before. Ive been able to perform on big stages as well. It gives me that extra confidence." While she wont make any predictions about her match with Li, Bouchard is fairly certain that her supporters will be tossing another stuffed Aussie animal onto the court after the match, bringing her tournament total to five. The bulky mementos have a special place in her heart, with Bouchard bringing each new one to post-match media availability and sitting it proudly next to the microphone. Getting the growing menagerie back to Quebec should not be a problem for the resourceful Bouchard. "I have a koala, and kangaroo, a kookaburra, and a wombat," she said. "I will create luggage space. Its worth it to take my wombat home." Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
