Los Angeles • Captain Dustin Brown tied it with 1:43 left and Trevor Lewis scored the tiebreaking power-play goal 22 seconds later, propelling the Los Angeles Kings to a stunning 4-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night and a 2-0 series lead.

Brown scored during a 5-on-3 advantage and Lewis provided the winner on a loose puck with 1:21 left, sending Staples Center into shocked celebration. The defending Stanley Cup champions won their 12th straight home game since March and their sixth straight postseason game.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic scored his first career playoff goal with 11:04 to play for the Sharks, who were doomed by two late penalties after rallying from an early two-goal deficit.

Jonathan Quick made 28 saves for the Kings, and Antti Niemi stopped 27 shots for the Sharks. Game 3 is Saturday night at the Shark Tank.

Bruins 3, Rangers 2 (OT) • Good things happen for the Bruins in overtime. Even for Brad Marchand.

Boston's leading goal-scorer during the regular season scored his first of the postseason with 4:20 left in the first overtime and the Bruins beat the New York Rangers in the first playoff game in 40 years between the Original Six teams in Boston.

The win was Boston's third straight in overtime, and New York's third straight loss in extra time.

Both teams advanced with Game 7 victories Monday night. —
