SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Matt Irwin and Logan Couture made Los Angeles pay for retaliating by scoring power-play goals after Jake Muzzin started a fight to help the San Jose Sharks snap a four-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory over the Kings on Thursday night.
Couture added a second goal and Brent Burns also scored for the Sharks, who earned just their third regulation win in 21 games. Antti Niemi made 34 saves and was the beneficiary of San Jose's highest scoring game since Jan. 27.
The victory was the 207th for coach Todd McLellan, breaking the franchise record set by Ron Wilson.
Dustin Brown scored twice and Dwight King added a goal for Los Angeles. Jonathan Quick was lifted after allowing three goals on 12 shots as the defending Stanley Cup-champion Kings lost consecutive games for the first time in more than a month.
The game turned midway through the second period after Andrew Desjardins flattened Los Angeles' Colin Fraser with a legal shoulder check behind the...

Failure to continue doing so will trigger revocation of said genius status and an indefinite stay inside the box.
Loved Cranky showing off for his dissenters. Seriously, all the way...

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin dropped the gloves with San Jose Sharks forward Andrew Desjardins after he leveled Colin Fraser. Muzzin wanted to stand up for his teammate, even though Desjardins dished out a clean hit. Unfortunately for Muzzin, he didn’t win the fight and and he earned 19 penalty minutes on the play for an Instigator (2 min), Instigator with a visor...

Shocking, I know. But do not get caught up in his goal production this year. Yes, he has scored 17 on the year, giving him credit for 23 percent of the Kings’ goals. But the problem lies in his assists. Carter only registered two assists on the year so far. Two.
Between even strength and power plays he has played at one point or...
In the midst of Blackhawks mania, I thought it might be a great time to bring back this gem from a couple years ago.
Current San Jose Sharks and former Chicago Blackhawks forward Adam Burish was once named the 26th most eligible single by Chicago magazine. The former Wisconsin Badgers champion (and Facebook friend to TSB) Burish showed off his bachelor pad, complete with upscale...
