Video: Hertl, Marleau score in last minute of first period for Sharks

Apr 17, 2014, 11:54 PM EDT

The San Jose Sharks opened up a three-goal lead over their adversaries, the L.A. Kings, in the first period of Game 1 of their Western Conference series – thanks to a pair of goals in the final minute.

Tomas Hertl scored his first career Stanley Cup playoff goal with 52 seconds remaining in the opening period to give San Jose a 2-0 lead, before Patrick Marleau got his stick on a loose puck and buried it into an open net with four seconds remaining.

Hertl has already gone on the record as saying this series is “personal” to him because of the injury he suffered earlier in the season on a hit from Dustin Brown.

The three-goal outburst from San Jose capped off an eventful first period. Sharks’ forward Mike Brown knocked Kings’ defenseman Slava Voynov into Dustin Brown, causing a massive scrum to ensue.

    It’s amazing how these two goals were almost identical. Pass goes to someone in the right slot, that player fumbles their shot, the puck manages to get to someone right near the crease on the left side, and boom. Maybe they should leave that one up on the chalkboard!!
