Champs are big road underdogs in Northern California
Feeling a little shark bitten ourselves, after the Senators miracle win on Sunday night, we know how Los Angeles feels as they let a series stranglehold slip away against their northern neighbors. Looking to take a commanding 3-0 semifinal series lead, the Kings let the Sharks off the hook after they lost in OT at the Shark Tank on Saturday.

Up against a wall at the Shark Tank San Jose bites back at Los Angeles
San Jose has to be feeling a little better about their Stanley Cup chances after narrowing the gap to a 2-1 Kings series lead. Logan Couture scored on the power play, just 1:29 into the first OT period, during Game Three. The Sharks have out shot the Kings by a combined 106-78 count through the first three contests in this series. They better be ready for the motivated LA squad as a win here means the Kings can warp things up in Game Five back down in SoCal.
