Friday, 05.17.2013 / 1:05 AM The Canadian Press

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Captain Dustin Brown tied it with 1:43 left and Trevor Lewis scored the tiebreaking power-play goal 22 seconds later, propelling the Los Angeles Kings to a stunning 4-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night and a 2-0 series lead.

Brown scored during a 5-on-3 advantage and Lewis provided the winner on a loose puck with 1:21 left, sending Staples Center into shocked celebration. The defending Stanley Cup champions won their 12th straight home game since March and their sixth straight post-season game.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic scored his first career playoff goal with 11:04 to play for the Sharks, who were doomed by two late penalties after rallying from an early two-goal deficit.

Jonathan Quick made 28 saves for the Kings, and Antti Niemi stopped 27 shots for the Sharks.

Game 3 is Saturday night at the Shark Tank.
