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.
