Kopitar scores twice to lead Kings to 4-2 victory over Sharks

Derek Armstrong and Michael Cammalleri also scored for the Kings, who avenged a 3-1 loss to the Sharks in Los Angeles on Tuesday night in the clubs' fifth meeting already this season.

Two rookies took starring roles as the Kings built a four-goal lead and coasted to the win. Kopitar scored the game's first two goals in the opening seven minutes, and Brust backstopped a solid defensive performance against the lifeless Sharks, who avoided a shutout on Christian Ehrhoff's power-play goal with 10:01 to play.

Mike Grier added a late goal, and Vesa Toskala stopped 27 shots for the Sharks, whose three-game winning streak was snapped in the opener of a six-game homestand.
