Playing the first NHL game in the country, the crowd in Shanghai couldn't have been treated to a more fast-paced, physical show in the Los Angeles Kings' 5-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday. The game was filled with a combined 17 power-play opportunities and 57 shots on goal.

Building on the support for winter sports in China since Beijing won the 2022 Olympics, the NHL is showcasing two preseason games in an attempt to break into the market.
