Sharks Hold Off Kings To Even Series

(San Jose, CA) -- Logan Couture's power play tally in the second period proved to be the game winner as the Sharks clipped the Kings 2-1 in Game Four of their Western Conference semifinal series. Sharks head coach Todd McLellan says they have to refocus going back to Los Angeles.

San Jose defended home ice to even the series at two games each as it heads back to LA. Brent Burns also scored for the Sharks while Antti Niemi made 22 saves in the victory. Mike Richards cut San Jose's lead in half with a power-play strike midway through the third.  Jonathan Quick made 21 saves for Los Angeles, which hosts Game Five Thursday.
