Sharks score 7 straight, rout Kings for 2-0 series lead
San Jose, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Joe Pavelski collected a goal and two assists, and the San Jose Sharks reeled off seven unanswered goals to post a convincing 7-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings and take a 2-0 series edge in this Western Conference quarterfinal.
Patrick Marleau and Logan Couture added a score and a helper each for the Sharks, who managed to score more in the first two games of this year's series (13) than in all of last year's seven-game loss to their southern rivals.
Mike Brown, Raffi Torres, Joe Thornton and Justin Braun also recorded tallies, while Antti Niemi shook off a shaky first period to record a 24-save victory.
Jake Muzzin and Trevor Lewis provided first-period scores for the Kings, who will have the comforts of home for the next two contests to get back on track, beginning with Game 3 on Tuesday in LA.
Jonathan Quick was left in net for all seven goals on 40 shots.
