LOS ANGELES - Teddy Purcell scored the tiebreaking goal from behind San Jose's goal line with 5:10 to play, and the Los Angeles Kings blew a four-goal lead before holding off the Sharks 6-4 Tuesday night.

Anze Kopitar had a goal and two assists, and Jonathan Quick made 25 saves for Los Angeles in a wild meeting between the Pacific Division rivals.

After the Kings chased Evgeni Nabokov while taking their huge early lead, Devin Setoguchi scored two of San Jose's four power-play goals in less than 20 minutes.

Dany Heatley capped a three-point night with San Jose's tying goal just 26 seconds before Purcell ricocheted in an improbable shot from the corner off backup goalie Thomas Greiss' back skate.
