San Jose, CA, United States (4E Sports) - Joe Thornton set up Brent Burns' first-period goal and Logan Couture added a power-play goal early in the second to push San Jose Sharks past the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 Tuesday to tie their series at two games.
Led by Thornton, Burns and TJ Galiardi, the Sharks spent almost the entire first period in the Los Angeles zone, outshooting the Kings 15-3. Then Thornton came up with the loose puck and slid a perfect cross-ice pass to Burns, who beat Kings goalie Jonaathan Quick with a one-timer. Couture gave the Sharks a 2-0 lead early in the second period, deflecting a point shot by Boyle past Quick.
But the Sharks managed just four shots in the final 36:05.
The Kings got on the scoreboard in the third period when Mike Richards knocked in a rebound of Jeff Carter's shot. They outshot the Sharks 14-2, holding the Sharks without a shot for nearly 13 minutes, but couldn't get the equalizer against goalie Antti Niemi, who made 13 of his 22 saves in the third period.
Jonathan Quick made 21 saves for the Kings.
Game 5 is Thursday night in Los Angeles when the Sharks will look to end a streak of four straight wins by the home team in this series.
