LOS ANGELES -- Facing the prospect of losing home-ice advantage, the Los Angeles Kings rallied with a pair of power-play goals by Dustin Brown and Trevor Lewis, scoring 22 seconds apart in the final minutes for a dramatic 4-3 come-from-behind victory over the San Jose Sharks. We found a way," said Kings coach Darryl Sutter. You know what, the power play was on, weve been talking about it. Weve been getting good looks and good opportunities and not finishing and we got it from different guys quite honestly. It was good to see Brown score a goal, breakout hopefully, and Lewis scoring the winner and Toffoli making a great play. For Kings rookie Tyler Toffoli, he was arguably the Kings' best player on the ice, especially in the third period where he played half of his total minutes in the game. It was Toffoli who drew the penalty that led to the tying goal and made an incredible tape-to-tape pass to Lewis for the game-winning goal. I thought he stepped in and played great," Brown said. He got a little more ice time and took it by the horns. The Sharks came into the game wanting to make life tougher for Jonathan Quick by creating a lot of traffic in front of him. After falling behind 2-0, the Sharks took control of the game and scored three straight goals before squandering the lead in the final minutes. When you score three goals against Jonathan Quick, you better win the game," said Sharks coach Todd McLellan. The thing I like about our team, maybe in the past this would have bothered our team more, but with the group of guys we have I think we can recover from this. "I think we can get out and play hard again. Well take our chances just like we did tonight. There are a few areas we need to clean up but guys played their hearts out. But again, like I said after Game 1, that doesnt get you wins in the playoffs. Scoring more than the other team does and were going to have to do that. The Kings continued their dominance at Staples Center winning their 12th straight at home and extended their home winning streak in the playoffs to a club record five victories. The series now shifts to San Jose, a place that has not been kind to the Kings. Los Angeles has lost five straight at the Shark Tank, including seven of their last 10. It will be electric, said Kings forward Anze Kopitar. That building gets pretty loud. It was a couple of years ago, I was in the stands when the guys were playing so I know how loud it can get, but we got to get up there and win a game. If the Kings can come away with a split they will put themselves in position to close out the series on home ice in Game 5. To do that, though, they will need to take a bite out of the Shark Tank starting Saturday night in San Jose.
