Goaltender Jonathan Quick didn't need a video review of the Kings' 3-2 overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks on Thursday in a riveting opener to their first-round playoff series. "At the end of the day," he said, "they just got one more than we did. " This matchup of the Kings, who faded to seventh in the West, and the Sharks, who finished atop the Pacific Division and earned the No. 2 seeding, was closer than their regular-season finishes would suggest. They battled fiercely, playing the third period and overtime at a gasp-a-minute pace until the Sharks' depth prevailed.

Every San Jose forward recorded at least two points in the team's two playoff victories over the Kings, a testament to the depth the Sharks have developed after years of featuring two strong lines and a bunch of moving parts. While top-six forward Joe Pavelski led the Sharks in scoring in the first two games with one goal and four points, the performances of the third and fourth lines were instrumental in helping San Jose win those first two games before the series shifts to Staples Center for Game 3 Tuesday night.

One season under the NHL's realigned conference setup probably was enough for Eastern teams to veto future additions from the West. The Detroit Red Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets, who moved from the West to the East before this season, won their new conference's two wild-card playoff berths. The Red Wings will make their 23rd consecutive postseason appearance, and the Blue Jackets will make their second appearance in franchise history. First place in the East - and overall - went to the Boston Bruins, with the Ducks winning the No. 1 spot in the West.

Controversy usually unfolds AFTER a playoff series starts. But it's already there, riding shotgun with the Kings and Sharks, who will be meeting for the third time in the postseason in the last four years. This all has to do with the knee-on-knee collision between Kings captain Dustin Brown and the Sharks' dynamic rookie Tomas Hertl on Dec. 19. Hertl, who required knee surgery, returned to action last week. Sharks fans haven't forgotten. Nor has Hertl, who told Bay Area reporters: "Playoff time, it's more important, because it's L.A.

The way the Ducks tell it, their interest in beating the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday is rooted mostly in the perks of what accompanies winning the Pacific Division and not about avoiding a first-round playoff series against the Kings. “No one's ever mentioned that about the Kings,” Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said. “The guys have fought long and hard to get to first place. … It's about the satisfaction of playing for six months and being the best.” By beating the Sharks in any fashion at Honda Center, the Ducks would clinch their second consecutive Pacific Division title and at least the No. 2 Western Conference playoff seeding.

The seeds of the San Jose Sharks' six-game winning streak, their 8-1-1 record since the Olympic break and ascent to a tie with the Ducks atop the Pacific Division were planted at last season's trading deadline, when Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson and his staff realized their plodding team needed a new identity and a major infusion of youth. "We did the reset/refresh, where we clarified how we wanted to play. We wanted to be a much faster team," Wilson said. He had a head start with strength down the middle in Joe Thornton, Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski and Patrick Marleau, so Wilson mostly reconfigured the wingers and defense.

SAN JOSE - The Pacific Division lead might change hands dozens of times before the season ends, but knowing that the winner of Wednesday's game between the Kings and the San Jose Sharks would take over first place added a dash of tension when the teams met at SAP Center. Finishing atop the tough division "is what we wanted to do, set out at training camp to do," Kings center Jarret Stoll said. If that goal seemed unlikely when goaltender Jonathan Quick (groin strain) joined stalwart defenseman Matt Greene (upper-body injury)

His arms thrust high … and just like that, the weight seemed to lift off the shoulders of a jubilant Anze Kopitar after his second goal of the season. Nothing quite like an overtime goal against the league's best team to do the trick. The Kings center had broken a season-long scoring drought last week, but his game-winner on the power play at 2 minutes 32 seconds was in a different category, leading the Kings to a 4-3 victory against the San Jose Sharks in overtime on Wednesday night at Staples Center.

SAN JOSE - Neatly framed but almost forgotten, a front page from the San Jose Mercury News sits against the wall in a room above the Sharks' practice rink. The newspaper photograph depicts a coach and two players, and the headline is bold: "Contenders for the Cup. " The players are goaltender Arturs Irbe and forward Sergei Makarov and the coach is Kevin Constantine. The year was 1994 and the eighth-seeded Sharks, in only their third season, were the darlings of the NHL for upsetting the No. 1 Detroit Red Wings in the first round of the playoffs before losing to the No. 2 Toronto Maple Leafs in seven games.

Kings 4, Sharks 3 (final) The Los Angeles Kings have taken a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinal series against the San Jose Sharks by scoring twice in a 22-second span in the final minutes of Game 2 on Thursday night at Staples Center. The Sharks can blame themselves for getting penalized twice in the late stages of the third period, giving the Kings a 5-on-3 advantage that they eventually converted. Dustin Brown scored the equalizier on a rebound and Trevor Lewis put home a loose puck when the Kings still had a man advantage.

SAN JOSE -- The Ducks confront not just the problem of overcoming four consecutive losses. They could also be revealing the script opponents should follow to clinch their demise. "We have to find the crux of the problem of our starts sooner or later because every team in the NHL sees this and will say, 'Get on them in the first five minutes, they're never ready,'" Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said. Turning in what could be strongly argued as their worst performance of the season, the Ducks were beaten by the San Jose Sharks, 4-0, Wednesday night at HP Pavilion, giving up three goals in the first 9 minutes 20 seconds.
