SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - From an epic comeback to a pair of six-goal outbursts to the two big road wins that gave the San Jose Sharks control of their first-round series, it was all in all a pretty successful trip to Los Angeles.

The task for the Sharks now is closing out the Kings at home in Game 5 on Saturday night and avoiding another trip to Southern California.

Most of the Sharks took the day off Friday to get some rest a day after taking a 3-1 series lead with a 6-3 victory at Staples Center. It marked the second straight six-goal game on the road against a team known for its tight defense and moved the Sharks to the brink of the second round.
