Kyle Clifford had a huge chance that Antti Niemi robbed him of early on in the third period. Niemi went post to post to get himself in front of it as the Kings had a 2-on-1. What followed was fifteen minutes of play that was largely balanced, with the Sharks seeming to get more opportunities by holding the puck in the Los Angeles zone and putting more shots on goal. The period wasn't necessarily uneventful, but both teams were very evenly matched and the edge barely goes to the Sharks in regards to keeping up the pressure, but they didn't get things done.
With two minutes left, Drew Doughty, one of the Kings' best players on the penalty kill, gets two minutes for tripping and the Sharks got their second power play of the night. The Kings were able to clear it out multiple times, Devin Setoguchi had the best opportunities on the attack, but the Kings were able to fend it off and as the power play came to an end, the period also came to an end.
So at 2-2 all, we're heading to an overtime period. Jonathan Quick will need to do a double take, there's no shootout for him tonight, this one goes until we've got a winner on overtime.
