First period: Kings 1, Sharks 1

The Kings were aided by a delay of game penalty in the closing minutes of Game 2. They were hurt by one to defenseman Jake Muzzin in the opening minutes of Game 3. Joe Pavelski won a faceoff cleanly from Anze Kopitar and Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle scored on a perimeter shot to give San Jose a 1-0 lead. Sharks defenseman Brad Stuart’s errant clearing attempt proved costly later in the period, with Kings rookie Tyler Toffoli picking it off and scoring on a beautiful backhander.
