  • San Jose Sharks goalie Antti Niemi, of Finland, stops a shot attempt from Los Angeles Kings center Tyler Toffoli (73) during the second period in Game 4 of their second-round NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoff series in San Jose, Calif., Tuesday, May 21, 2013.

Brent Burns helped San Jose jump off to a fast start with his second goal of the postseason and the Sharks tied their second-round series against Los Angeles at two games with a 2-1 victory over the Kings in Game 4 on Tuesday night.

Logan Couture followed up his overtime game-winner in Game 3 with his fifth power-play goal of the playoffs to add to the lead and Antti Niemi made 22 saves as the Sharks matched the Kings' two home wins to open the series with two of their own.

Mike Richards scored a power-play goal and Jonathan Quick made 21 saves for the Kings, who have lost 10 of 11 road games dating to the end of the regular season.

Game 5 is Thursday night in Los Angeles when the Sharks will look to end a streak of four straight wins by the home team in this series.
