Antti Niemi saved 26 of 27 shots in a 2-1 overtime win on Saturday.
Niemi surrendered a goal in the first period, but was otherwise perfect in this contest. The Kings had two power-play opportunities, but the Sharks managed to kill off both penalties. Niemi and the Sharks bounced back from allowing four goals in Game 2, but San Jose still has a 2-1 deficit in their second-round series.
Logan Couture scored the overtime winner in San Jose's 2-1 victory Saturday.
Couture briefly exited the game due to a suspected leg injury, but was able to shake it off. Dan Boyle scored San Jose's other goal. Patrick Marleau assisted on both of the Sharks' goals. Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton each registered an assist for San Jose. Brad Stuart led the team with four blocked shots. Tommy Wingels recorded a team-high six hits.
