LOS ANGELES (AP) — Will Ferrell spent the second period of the Kings‘ game against the San Jose Sharks as part of the local television broadcast in his “Anchorman” character Carey Price Jersey
, Ron Burgundy. The comedian, who often attends games, never got to call a goal for the home team.They more than made up for it as soon as Burgundy left the booth.Anze Kopitar had a goal and an assist, Matt Roy scored his first career goal and the Kings used a three-goal third period to top the Sharks 4-2 on Thursday night.“Winning’s a lot more fun that losing, and we’ve done a lot of losing this year,” said Kings forward Dustin Brown, who scored for the third straight game.Jeff Carter also scored for Los Angeles, which snapped a five-game skid at home. Jonathan Quick made 23 saves.Barclay Goodrow and Tomas Hertl scored, and Martin Jones made 31 saves for the Sharks, who trail Calgary by five points for the Pacific Division lead and the best record in the Western Conference.“We saw how Calgary is playing right now, and we have to step it up,” Hertl said. “It’s the time of the year we have to be ready because the playoffs are coming very soon. LA was all over us, and it’s a tough loss for us tonight.”Los Angeles trailed 2-1 in the third period when Roy tied it at 9:28 with a shot from the blue line for his first goal. The Kings defenseman Jeff Petry Jersey Kids
, who entered with two assists in 15 career games, initially thought Brown might have tipped the shot in and had a delayed celebration.There was no such hesitation from the Kings to take the 3-2 lead as Kopitar got in behind the Sharks defense at 11:45 of the third period, getting his 21st goal. The Sharks lost track of the Kings captain as both teams fought to take the puck off the wall in the San Jose zone, with Alex Iafallo eventually chipping over to Kopitar for a breakaway.Carter added a short-handed empty-net goal with 1:17 remaining.San Jose looked to be in good shape to stay within striking distance of Calgary even without forwards Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski and defenseman Erik Karlsson in the lineup when Hertl scored his 32nd goal on a wrist shot from the right circle for a 2-1 lead at 3:45 of the second period.Couture was held out at the last moment because of flu-like symptoms. Pavelski missed his second game because of a lower-body injury, and Karlsson missed his 10th straight game because of a groin injury.But the Sharks lost focus in the third period and continuing a recent tendency, forward Evander Kane said.“It’s not necessarily a lack of urgency going into the game, but periods in the game where we, I think, are maybe a little too relaxed,” Kane said. “And that was a prime example, going into the third period. We need to push to get that next goal and be harder to play against on the defensive side of the puck.”The Kings, stuck in last place in the West, were more than happy to take advantage of the malaise from their Northern California rivals with a classy final 20 minutes.“You could feel the excitement in the building tonight Jonathan Drouin Jersey
, so it was a lot of fun,” Roy said.NOTES: Brent Burns had an assist for the third straight game.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Ever since the Ducks won 4-2 in Pittsburgh on Dec. 17, the Penguins have been almost unbeatable and Anaheim hasn’t been able to win again anywhere.When the Penguins got a rematch in Orange County on Friday night, Jake Guentzel and Phil Kessel made sure both teams continued on the same trajectories.Guentzel scored three times, Kessel got the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period and Pittsburgh rallied from an early three-goal deficit for a 7-4 victory over the Ducks, sending Anaheim to its 10th consecutive loss.Tanner Pearson scored the tying goal midway through the third and added another with 3:25 left for the Penguins, who roared back with a four-goal third period for their 10th win in 11 games since that home loss to Anaheim. The Penguins didn’t think they deserved to be down 3-0 after the first period, and they swiftly showed why.“We played a pretty good game,” Sidney Crosby said. “I know it was 3-0, but we still felt like we did some good things in the first period. … I think we just kept going the same way. We didn’t get away from our game or open up too much.”Matt Murray stopped 21 shots, Evgeni Malkin added a goal and three assists http://www.officialcanadiensprostore.com/authentic-adidas-karl-alzner-jersey
, and Kessel had three points in a bountiful performance by Pittsburgh’s offensive stars. Guentzel scored two goals in the second period and added an empty-netter to wrap up his second hat trick of the season in a wild opener to Pittsburgh’s five-game West Coast road trip.“I think it’s a good confidence-builder for us,” coach Mike Sullivan said. “We’re just hard to defend against. We have threats throughout our lineup. That’s the sign of a good hockey team, when you get different contributions at different times.”Jakob Silfverberg scored a go-ahead, short-handed goal late in the second period, but the Ducks dropped to 0-7-3 since that win in Pittsburgh last month.John Gibson made 29 saves against his hometown team, but was shredded in the third period along with Anaheim’s struggling defense.Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said he’s never been through a losing streak to compare with his team’s current malaise.“We just stopped playing” in the second period, Carlyle said. “It looked like we were out of gas. They were in a faster gear than we were. It seems like when we have to reach back for more energy or stiffness with our group, we’re unable to do it. We just seem to be lacking energy.”Nick Ritchie, Ryan Getzlaf and Daniel Sprong scored in the first period, but the Ducks couldn’t maintain their start. Guentzel scored twice and Malkin got another as the Penguins erased Anaheim’s lead in an 11-minute span of the second period.Pittsburgh then trailed 4-3 midway through the third before Pearson and Kessel scored 48 seconds apart. Kessel put the Pens ahead by taking the puck away from Jacob Larsson and shrugging off the defenseman’s checks to score on his own rebound.Both of these longtime playoff contenders got off to slow starts this season, but only Pittsburgh has managed to maintain its recovery.Although the Ducks’ four goals matched their total from their previous four games combined, Anaheim’s overall slump shows no signs of abating after an 0-3-3 homestand.“We had it going early for a change tonight, and it was a good first period Jonathan Bernier Jersey Womens
,” Ritchie said. “We get a three-goal lead and fall apart, I guess. We get some penalties, and their power play is good. We made it pretty easy on them. It doesn’t help taking penalties, and they kind of got the momentum. You can’t fall asleep against a team like Pittsburgh.”NOTES: Crosby had one assist and didn’t record a shot on goal, but Sullivan praised his dominant performance. … Sprong was traded from Pittsburgh to Anaheim last month for defenseman Marcus Pettersson. He has six goals in his first 5½ weeks with the Ducks. … Guentzel recorded his fourth multi-goal game of the year and secured his second career 20-goal season. … Pittsburgh scratched Patric Hornqvist, who incurred an apparent concussion in Tuesday’s win over Florida. … Anaheim scratched forward Pontus Aberg for the second straight game. He was tied for the team lead with 11 goals, but hasn’t scored in his last seven appearances.UP NEXTPenguins: At the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday, the second stop on a five-game Pacific Division swing.Ducks: At the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday to open a five-game road trip.
