Gameday Thread 3: Kings and Sharks headed into third period tied at two

Kings rebound with a pair of goals in the second to respond to both Sharks leads. Dustin Brown ripped one past Niemi on a 2 on 1, while Justin Williams tucked a puck past Niemi short side after an attempted clear around the boards by Douglas Murray bounced off the skate of Ryan Smyth.

Logan Couture had a beauty of a goal as well, evading a Drew Doughty hip check and slipping it through Quick.

One very specific man might be all that stands between San Jose and the greatest threat of our brief playoff existence. We need a leader, and surround him with the brightest, the toughest, the deadliest allies we can find. The team will have to be strong, their resolve unquestionable.
