Kings up the Antti
The Los Angeles Kings have ended Antti Niemi's night less than midway through the opening period.

Dustin Penner's first goal in 17 games gave the Kings a 3-0 lead with 11:18 left in the first, prompting Sharks coach Todd McLellan to replace Niemi with Antero Niittymaki.

Kyle Clifford scored at 7:14 of the first to make it 2-0.
Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
