March 15, 2013 at 1:54 AM   |   Comments

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 15 (UPI) -- Logan Couture gave San Jose a three-goal lead early in the third period Thursday and the Sharks held off a late charge to defeat Los Angeles 4-3.

San Jose ended a four-game losing streak, getting two goals from Couture.

Couture produced his 11th and 12th goals of the season, scoring his second one just 27 seconds into the third quarter.

That gave the Sharks a 4-1 advantage, but Dustin Brown delivered his second of the game with 7:12 to go to give the Kings hope and Dwight King scored on a slap shot with 3:20 to play.

Antti Niemi, who faced 37 shots, then settled down to preserve the victory.

Jonathan Quick opened in goal for Los Angeles, but was relieved after he allowed three goals on 12 shots. Jonathan Bernier replaced him and surrendered one goal on 14 shots.

The Kings have lost two in a row for the first time in more than a month.
