Video: No California Love in third period of L.A.-San Jose

Apr 29, 2014, 1:31 AM EDT

The final 20 minutes of tonight’s Sharks-Kings Game 6 certainly weren’t lacking in drama.

Tonight’s final frame also featured violence. And emotion. Plenty of both, actually. Following a first-period tilt between Andrew Desjardins and Kyle Clifford, Couture and Mike Richards threw down in what was the fourth scrap in six games between these two bitter rivals:

Not long after that spirited tilt, another crazy moment — Kings goalie Jonathan Quick went after Sharks captain Joe Thornton:

All in all, the two teams combined for 98 penalty minutes in the game, 80 of them coming in the final period.

    And don’t forget, we still have a Boston-Montreal series to look forward to! That’s gonna be a bloodbath.

    All of the California teams have been entertaining to watch in the playoffs for the last few years. I almost never see them during the regular season, so seeing them in some of these crazy first-round playoff series in recent years is lots of fun.

    Drew Remenda is absolutely insufferable. Pierre gets a bad wrap, but Remenda is brutal. Usually not a fan of negative posts, but after listening to him babble on how Havlat redeemed himself, when it blatantly did not touch him I could not hold back. The only thing worse than Remenda is Micheletti’s figaro wrist chain

      With 60 seconds left in a 4-1 game, Drew and Brodie Brazil were whining about Doughty being on the ice. Who cares at that point? The CSN crew are homers who seem to have a skewed understanding of the game.
