NHL taps new market, plays 1st preseason game in China

SHANGHAI (AP) A golden dragon was held aloft on poles by skaters. Kobe Bryant appeared on video. NHL mascots gave the crowd a primer on what this odd game is all about.

NHL preseason hockey made its debut in China - a 5-2 victory by the Los Angeles Kings over the Vancouver Canucks - in a step by the league to crack an immense market.

The fans in Shanghai got a fast and physical display Thursday - 17 power plays and 57 shots on goal, all met with loud cheers. Each hard check drew a collective "oooh" or "aaah."
