There’s no question Mike Brown and Raffi Torres of the San Jose Sharks have been involved so far in this opening-round series against the L.A. Kings. They’ve mostly been dispensing heavy, punishing body checks and getting under the skin of the opposition.
Brown has, on two occasions, sent a Kings’ player into L.A.’s star goalie Jonathan Quick (here is what he did in Game 1, and here is what he did in Game 2). But in the second period of Sunday’s game, both contributed on the score sheet.
Brown got the Sharks on the board with his first of the series, cutting the Kings’ lead in half at the 4:25 mark of the second period.
Torres tied the game less than five minutes later on a perfect wrist shot that beat Quick on the blocker side. It counted as his second of the series.
Here is the Torres goal.
The Sharks, with a trio of goals in the second period, including Justin Braun‘s first of the series, took a 3-2 lead into the third.
