SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Jonathan Quick made 30 saves to shut out San Jose for the fourth time in his career in the postseason and the Los Angeles Kings staved off elimination for a second straight game by beating the Sharks 3-0 on Saturday night in Game 5 of their first-round series.

Tyler Toffoli, Anze Kopitar and Jeff Carter scored for the Kings, who have rebounded after losing the first three games of the series. Quick allowed 16 goals in those losses but once again is starting to look like the goalie who stymied the Sharks in a second-round series a year ago.

Antti Niemi allowed three goals on 19 shots and got pulled for the second straight game for the Sharks. Perhaps more importantly, San Jose also lost star defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic to an undisclosed injury after he was roughed by Jarret Stoll late in the first period.
