As convincing as Sharks Game 1 win was, Kings know it only counts once

SAN JOSE, Calif. - About the only positive the Los Angeles Kings could take out of their lopsided loss in their playoff opener to the San Jose Sharks was no matter how poorly they played, it still only counted as one loss.

Star goalie Jonathan Quick was pulled after a rough first two periods, the Kings fell behind by five goals in the second period as they gave up far too many odd-man rushes and Los Angeles couldn't get anything past Antti Niemi until it was far too late.

It all added up to a 6-3 loss to San Jose and a lesson the Kings know they need to take into Game 2 on Sunday night if they want to even the series before returning home for two games.
