Video: Bad blood continues to brew between Sharks and Kings

Apr 21, 2014, 1:28 AM EDT

With the score suddenly lopsided in the third period, things could’ve gotten ugly, very ugly, between the San Jose Sharks and L.A. Kings in Game 2 of their Western Conference quarter-final.

This one was close at one point, until the Sharks completely took over early in the third period, beating the Kings 7-2 to take a 2-0 series lead. The bad blood between these two teams is evident. The Kings outhit the Sharks 47-26 on Sunday.

But with this one out of hand on the scoreboard, it could’ve gotten out of hand on the ice. Behind the mayhem was San Jose’s fourth line, including Raffi Torres and Mike Brown, who also got the Sharks going offensively in the second period, but were the catalysts for physical play as well.

A number of scrums broke out post-whistle, and a total of four misconducts were handed out in the final six minutes. Kings’ forward Mike Richards was handed a double-minor for spearing Logan Couture.

    Yeah, it could’ve gotten out of hand but in reality the Kings didn’t have any of their guy’s who would drop the gloves out there and it was just a basic post cover up scrum.

    As for the double minor on Richards, I’ll bet the only reason the refs called that is because they were paranoid that the game was going to get out of control. While the Kings and Sharks are both physical teams, neither one is well known for dropping the gloves.

    Well atleast Richards knows that hell only get a fine of $5k for his spear. Unlike adjusting your rocket ship to the refs which is $25k.

    I hope Kings fans are proud of their classless thugs, including their captain, head cheap shot artist Dustin Brown, who continues to hide behind the refs and refuses to fight. Then runs his mouth hiding behind the linesman.
