Sharks look to rebound from opening loss, host Kings

Sharks look to rebound from opening loss, host Kings”

ABOUT THE SHARKS (0-1-0): Martin Jones stumbled out of the blocks by yielding four goals on 30 shots versus the Flyers, but was significantly better in five encounters against Los Angeles last season.

Mikkel Boedker scored for the Sharks, who have lost their first two home games.

A year ago, Jonathan Quick suffered a groin injury in the season opener here that spelled doom for the Kings.

Kopitar scored again at 12:07 of the second period to make it 3-1, banking a sharp-angled shot from near the left boards off a defender and past Jones. 2, San Jose, Boedker 1 (DeMelo, Dillon), 6:14. The goal was set up by Jannik Hansen's steal near the net. The two-time Vezina Trophy finalist looks to turn up the heat on his hot start Saturday as the Los Angeles Kings visit the Pacific Division-rival San Jose Sharks.

The fourth was credited to Nick Shore, although it was an own goal by Melker Karlsson because of miscommunication between Jones and his teammates. Jones came out to challenge a shot but was unable to control the puck. The rush began because San Jose defenseman Brent Burns tried to clear the puck and Jake Muzzin intercepted it.

The Sharks meanwhile have undergone some changes as long time forward and former captain Patrick Marleau is no longer with the team as they have moved fully into the idea that this is Joe Pavelski and Logan Couture's team with Joe Thornton now is a supportive role. The Kings seem to step up when the lights are brightest and while this is early in the season it is still a rivalry game and at this price I think the Kings are worth the play.

Kings: Host the Calgary Flames on Wednesday.
