San Jose Sharks Beat Los Angeles Kings In Season Opener

SAN JOSE  (CBS SF/AP) — The San Jose Sharks beat the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 Wednesday night.

Brent Burns scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period after Los Angeles goalie Jonathan Quick left with an injury and the San Jose Sharks opened the season with a 2-1 victory over the Kings on Wednesday night.

Logan Couture added a power-play goal and an assist and Martin Jones made 21 saves in San Jose’s first real game since losing the Stanley Cup Final to Pittsburgh exactly four months earlier.

Tyler Toffoli scored a power-play goal in a rough start to the season for the Kings.

Quick left after stopping 14 of 15 shots in the first period with a lower body injury. He appeared to hurt himself stretching to get to the post to stop a chance by Joe Pavelski late in the period. Jeff Zatkoff replaced him and stopped 15 of 16 shots.

    Great comeback after looking horrible the first 10 minutes. Brent Burns made up for a costly mistake. That is the sign of a great pro!
