Third period: Kings 1, Sharks 1

The Sharks poured on the pressure to start the third period, but couldn’t produce the go-ahead goal. The Kings pressured the Sharks later in the frame, but couldn’t score either. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick had to come up with a couple of big saves late in the period. San Jose’s Antti Niemi stopped Dustin Penner and then Anze Kopitar on a bang-bang sequence to keep the score tied. The Kings will start sudden-death overtime down two men after penalties to Robyn Regehr and Trevor Lewis. Two-man advantage plus a fresh sheet of ice could be a lethal combination for the Sharks to start OT.
