San Jose, CA (Sports Network) - Raffi Torres potted the only goal of the
shootout to lift the San Jose Sharks to a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles
Kings on Tuesday at HP Pavilion.
After the first four shooters came up empty, Torres skated in and slipped a
backhander through the five-hole of Jonathan Quick to put the Sharks in front.
Mike Richards had a chance to extend the shootout, but his quick wrister was
turned away by Antti Niemi, who stopped 41 shots through regulation and
overtime before turning away all three shooters in the shootout.
Brent Burns registered a goal and an assist, while TJ Galiardi netted the
other regulation goal for the Sharks, who have won two straight to move into a
tie with the Kings for the fourth spot in the Western Conference with 53
Jake Muzzin and Dustin Brown each scored once for Los Angeles, while Quick
posted 33 saves to help the Kings salvage a point.
