LOS ANGELES (AP) - Justin Williams and Marian Gaborik scored two goals apiece, and the Los Angeles Kings emphatically avoided first-round playoff elimination with a 6-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks in Game 4 on Thursday night.

Captain Dustin Brown had a goal and an assist, and Tyler Toffoli scored on his 22nd birthday during a three-goal second period as the Kings dodged a series sweep with a one-sided win that could plant a seed of doubt in their dominant California rivals' minds.

Game 5 is Saturday in San Jose.

Jonathan Quick made 36 saves for Los Angeles, which chased Sharks goalie Antti Niemi on Gaborik's beautiful goal early in the third period.

James Sheppard, Matt Nieto and Joe Pavelski scored for the Sharks, who couldn't finish off the second playoff sweep in franchise history.
