Video: Tempers boil over between Kings, Sharks

Call it setting the tone.

The final minutes of Game 4 between two bitter rivals, the L.A. Kings and San Jose Sharks, was packed with disdain once it became clear who was going to win the game. The Kings, needing a victory to stay alive in the series and avoid a sweep in the first round, defeated the Sharks by a final score of 6-3.

The final seconds were sure eventful. A massive scrum broke out near the Kings bench with 24 seconds remaining, resulting in nothing but roughing minors for San Jose forwards Mike Brown, Raffi Torres and Andrew Desjardins, as well as L.A. defenseman Willie Mitchell and forward Kyle Clifford.

A few seconds later, Justin Williams and Justin Braun got into a short scrap, before the main event between Brent Burns and Robyn Regehr erupted at the buzzer.

By the way, Game 5 is Saturday back in San Jose.

    Anyone want to enhance the audio on this and post a link? This was one of the rare times where you could hear almost everything refs and players were saying. “You guys want suspensions!”…

      Brody Brazil is a hack beyond compare. Could someone enhance the audio by firing that tool?

      • charlieconway96 - Apr 25, 2014 at 10:32 PM

        Hahaha, AMEN!

    i was waiting for this series to boil over

    • imleftcoast - Apr 25, 2014 at 2:35 PM

      That was pathetic. I’m still waiting.

    Hmmm…. Brown, Torres and Desjardins? There is literally just the one purpose for those clowns to be on the ice, and they did just that.

      What, score? Like they did in Games 1-2?

      Sour grapes, douchebag Kings fan. Sour grapes. It’ll all be over soon enough. Enjoy your offseason.

        Am I missing something? “Enjoy your offseason” No one plans there tee times earlier then the Sharks. The sharks have been the biggest playoff disappointment in the entire NHL for how many years? You can make plans for the first week in June, because you won’t be watching the Sharks in the stanley cup finals.

      What an ignorant comment. These guys have 3 goals and 6 points in four games in this series. Can you say that about your fourth line??

      • cybernetikghost - Apr 25, 2014 at 1:11 PM

        If you want a goal, you aren’t putting your good young scorers in, you are putting in these guys? Honestly? Stats are inflated because there was an above average number of goals scored in those games. You are in some serious denial if you think that that line was put out there to try an score.

      • skr213 - Apr 25, 2014 at 1:41 PM

        You obviously haven’t been watching the games. These three guys earned the three stars of the game for game 1. Or did you not notice that? Get your head out of your ass.

      • cybernetikghost - Apr 25, 2014 at 8:33 PM

        So you honestly thought that they were put out there to score though? Stars in the game are given for a number of reasons, not just scoring. They could have given them stars for the fact that they don’t score often. Certainly didn’t have any competition with the kings for those stars either. It’s a moot point.

    Kings have nothing to loose by being violent cheap shot artists. If they loose the series, the Sharks will be more beat up. This is something that really bugs me about the game of Hockey. When a game is out of reach, they should have rules to prevent frustrated players from lashing out. I’m all for fighting in hockey, just not in the last 2 minutes of a 6-3 game.

      Go watch basketball

    • cybernetikghost - Apr 25, 2014 at 1:14 PM

      Kings don’t have anything to lose, I agree, but where did you see them being violent cheap shot artists? Cause Raffi Torres is in a sharks jersey.

    love how the Kings goalie is shown kinda standing there, like he’s thinking, “what the heck, man, game’s over, what is this stuff?’. That’s funny.

  6. kings138 - Apr 25, 2014 at 2:15 PM

    Good game. It’s funny with all the crap the sharks fans are speaking as if they already won the cup already let alone get past the conference.

    • tunesguy - Apr 25, 2014 at 4:00 PM

      Funny that Kings Fan wants to talk smack about a Cup. Only took you guys 45 years to win once and now you think your franchise is much better than San Jose?? That’s poetic idiocy…

      • cybernetikghost - Apr 25, 2014 at 8:37 PM

        It took the kings 45 years but how many people picked the sharks to win it for years straight? Kings have been awful for a while, the sharks have been dominant and fail year after year. I don’t see why more sharks fans aren’t upset with their own team vs blaming everyone else.

    its funny the kings didnt even have fans till they won the cup
