The Los Angeles Kings stay alive in the series conquering the San Jose Sharks, at SAP Center on Saturday with a 3-0 shutout.
The Kings came out with speed, power, and were victorious. The Kings took over the ice and gave the Sharks very few opportunities to succeed on their home ice. The Sharks have the best record in the NHL season for wins on home ice, but not on Saturday.
Jonathan Quick was in net for the Kings making 30 saves, and was the number one in the three stars of the game (two was Doughty and three Carter). Antti Niemi started in goal for the Sharks but after a 2-0 lead in the first period, Alex Stalock took the net in the second and third.
The Kings lead in shots, blocked shots and face-off wins, and the Sharks lead in hits. The Kings took advantage of one out of four power plays, the Sharks zero out of five.
In the first period Tyler Toffoli with a sniper shot put the Kings on the map from a pass by Tanner Pearson, who got the assist along with Alec Martinez. Anze Kopitar got the second goal assisted by Dustin Brown.
The Kings came charging into the second period on a power play getting a third goal by Jeff Carter assisted by Marian Gaborik and Drew Doughty.
In the third period remained 3-0 as the Kings took the victory to keep them alive in the series.
The series returns to STAPLES Center on Monday for game six at 7:00 p.m. The Sharks lead the series 3-2.Tags: Hockey, Los Angeles, Los Angeles Kings, NHL
