After getting pulled five times in his first 15 starts this year, Jones has allowed just five goals on 147 shots in his past four.

Anze Kopitar, Carl Grundstrom and Jaret Anderson-Dolan each had a goal and an assist to help the Kings beat the San Jose Sharks 6-2 on Thursday night and snap a five-game losing streak. "I can't remember doing that in a long time," Kings coach Todd McLellan said of the four-goal cushion.
The difference between the Kings and San Jose Sharks could be measured by the width of a hockey stick and the thickness of a goal post. Midway through the game, Sharks defenseman Brent Burns made a goal-saving stick play on Trevor Lewis. Minutes later, Tanner Pearson hit the crossbar, one of two struck crossbars by the Kings on the night. The Kings had a lot of those plays go right for them during their five-game winning streak, but it finally fell wrong for them Wednesday in a 4-1 loss at Staples Center. The streak was snapped because of a late first-period breakdown that put them behind 3-0, and the Sharks rode through behind ex-Kings goalie Martin Jones and perhaps some Stanley Cup finalist mettle such as the Burns play.
