The funny thing is that Taylor was only given a shot because of injuries, was never expected to do anything other than open the door (much like this thread) yet was put in because Ersberg was lit up.

It didn't go very well though, Taylor comes in to start the 3rd after Ersberg lets in 5 goals, Kings have pressure for the first couple minutes until Jere Lehtinen got a partial break away and fired a shot from the high slot into the net over Danny's left shoulder. First shot Taylor sees in the NHL is a laser, he hardly even moved. Ends up giving up 2 goals on 10 shots that period, Kings lose 7-2. That was bad year for LA, but 3 months later they drafted Drew Doughty.

I hope Danny's second chance goes a little better than his first.
