All the way back: LA Kings beat Sharks 4-1 for 3rd straight win in series, forcing Game 7

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Justin Williams forced the tiebreaking goal underneath Alex Stalock with 8:04 to play, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the San Jose Sharks 4-1 on Monday night, rallying all the way back from an 0-3 series deficit to force a decisive Game 7.

Williams and Anze Kopitar each had two goals and an assist, and Jonathan Quick made 25 saves as the Kings became just the ninth team in NHL history to force a seventh game after losing the first three.

Stalock stopped 26 shots in his first NHL playoff start, and James Sheppard scored for the spiraling Sharks.

Just three teams in NHL history have rallied from an 0-3 deficit to win a series.

Los Angeles could join them in Game 7 in San Jose on Wednesday.
