Antti Niemi stopped Jeff Carter on a 2-on-1 in overtime and then was perfect in the shootout to help the San Jose Sharks move into a tie for fourth place in the Western Conference with a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night. Raffi Torres scored the only goal of the shootout and Brent Burns scored one goal and assisted on another by TJ Galiardi on a productive second-period shift for the Sharks, who followed Monday night's win in Phoenix with a home victory against the Kings. Niemi made 41 saves, including the key pad stop on Carter in overtime. Jake Muzzin and Dustin Brown scored for Los Angeles, which fell into a tie with San Jose in the battle for home-ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Jonathan Quick made 33 saves as the Kings lost their fourth straight road game.

Adam Burish and Oliver Ekman-Larsson invent a new Yoga pose mid-game
