San Jose, CA (Sports Network) - Once again, the San Jose Sharks used home ice
to their benefit to get back into their series with the Los Angeles Kings.
Logan Couture scored the deciding goal on the power play 1:29 into overtime as
the resilient Sharks bounced back from a potentially deflating defeat two
nights prior with a 2-1 victory in Game 3 of this Western Conference
The Sharks fell into an 0-2 hole against the defending Stanley Cup champion
Kings after Los Angeles put up two power-play goals within a 22-second span
over the final two minutes to pull out a 4-3 triumph in Thursday's Game 2, but
regained their own scoring touch on the man advantage while feeding off the
crowd at HP Pavilion, where San Jose went 17-2-5 during the regular season.
Dan Boyle also tallied on the power play, a situation where the Sharks went 0-
for-7 in dropping the first two games in Los Angeles, while Antti Niemi turned
aside 26-of-27 shots in the critical win.
Tyler Toffoli potted the lone goal for the Kings, who received 38 saves from
Jonathan Quick but were ultimately doomed by a pair of penalties late in
