Andrew Desjardins had a chance to get the San Jose Sharks even on the score board in the first period of Saturday’s Game 5 against the L.A. Kings. But Kings’ goalie Jonathan Quick had other plans.
Moving to his right, Quick made a pad save on Desjardins after some pretty passing from the Sharks set up a quality scoring opportunity with L.A., needing another win to stave off elimination, leading 1-0 in the opening period.

Just a few minutes later, Anze Kopitar gave the Kings a 2-0 lead with his first goal of the post-season.
