It’s time to close out the season series between the San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings and #BeatLA one last time. In seven match-ups so far, the Kings have just one victory, a 6-2 win on February 11.

Last night, the Sharks took home a 5-2 win. Brent Burns had three assists on goals from Kevin Labanc, Patrick Marleau and Dylan Gambrell. Rudolphs Balcers and Tomas Hertl also scored for the Sharks.

These two teams are starting to look sick of each other, with fights between Jeffrey Viel and Kurtis MacDermid, as well as Marcus Sorensen and Andreas Athanasiou.
