San Jose held home ice with a 2-1 win for the second straight game, creating a series stalemate in the Western Conference semifinals. The Sharks surged to a 2-0 advantage before the second intermission and held off a late Los Angeles rally to pull even at two wins apiece.

Logan Couture scored his fifth power play goal of the postseason, notching his second game-winning goal of the series. Brent Burns also scored for San Jose.

The Kings managed just 12 shots in the first two periods before putting 14 shots on goal in the final frame. The defending Stanley Cup champions were unable to beat goalie Antti Niemi in the game's final minutes and head home searching for answers on offense.

The home team is 4-0 so far in this series.

Final: San Jose 2, Los Angeles 1
