Final: Sharks 2, Kings 1 (OT)

The Kings killed off all of a two-man disadvantage, but Joe Thornton pass the puck to Patrick Marleau near the right goal post and Marleau shifted it to Logan Couture in the slot for the winning goal while the Sharks skated 5-on-4. San Jose’s victory trimmed the Kings’ deficit to 2-1 in the best-of-7 series. The Kings are scheduled to return to El Segundo for a little rest, recovery and preparation for the next two days. Game 4 is in San Jose on Tuesday. The Kings must avoid the penalty box, as they did in the closing moments of the third period. Robyn Regehr was penalized for hooking and Trevor Lewis followed him to the penalty box for running into goaltender Antti Niemi. It wasn’t a disciplined finished.
