SAN JOSE, Calif. - Logan Couture scored a power-play goal 1:29 into overtime to help the San Jose Sharks bounce back from two losses in Los Angeles to beat the Kings 2-1 in Game 3 of their second-round series on Saturday night.

Dan Boyle scored a power-play goal early in the first period and Antti Niemi made 26 saves for the Sharks, who got the penalty calls to go in their favour down the stretch.

Rookie Tyler Toffoli scored the lone goal for the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings, who had won six straight games since dropping the first two in the opening round in St. Louis. Jonathan Quick made 38 saves.

Game 4 is Tuesday night in San Jose.

RED WINGS 4, BLACKHAWKS 1

CHICAGO (AP)—Damien Brunner and Brendan Smith scored in the second period and Detroit beat Chicago in Game 2 to tie the Western Conference semifinal series.

It was a strong response by the Red Wings after Chicago won the series opener 4-1.

Just as the Blackhawks did in Game 1, Detroit took control in the second period and put the game away in the third. The Red Wings have a chance to take the lead when the series between the Original Six rivals shifts to Detroit for Game 3 on Monday.

Patrick Kane gave Chicago a 1-0 lead late in the first.

Brunner tied it early in the second, and Smith gave the Red Wings the lead when he scored off a feed from Henrik Zetterberg late in the second. Johan Franzen made it 3-1 in the third. Jimmy Howard stopped 19 shots.

Corey Crawford made 26 saves for Chicago.
