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.
Can't really fault a goaltender in their NHL debut for giving up 2 goals on 10 shots. It was a long time ago and Danny has seemingly found a consistency he never had before since returning from Europe. As much as I would like him to get a shot and do well I hope he is up for 1 game, maybe 2 as the backup and never seens the ice because it will mean Irving is doing well and Kiprusoff is out only a few games.

However after this season I would like to see someone, somewhere give him a shot at fighting for a backup spot.
