The Sharks, who have been a part of some epic failures in their history, went up 1-0 early in the 2nd. The Kings were able to score twice in the 2nd period, and never looked back from there. They were able to score 3 goals in the 3rd to solidify the series win.
Next up they face their crosstown rivals, the Anaheim Ducks. It will be the first freeway playoff series for the teams.
