Bet Tonight's Sharks vs. Kings Game 2 Matchup

Jonathan Quick had a rough performance in Game 1 of this series, turning away just 19-of-23 shots, including four-of-five on the penalty kill. The eventual game-winner came on a wrap-around goal by Joe Pavelski just 17 seconds into the third period. On a positive note, Quick has started in 77 consecutive playoff games for L.A. and is one of just three players to appear in all 77 of those contests.

For the Sharks, moving Patrick Marleau down a line gave the team a huge advantage in Game 1 notes the San Jose Mercury News. The third line of Marleau, Matt Nieto and Melker Karlsson outplayed the Kings' third line led by Vincent Lecavalier. Los Angeles will need to figure out a way to counter the move tonight.
