LOS ANGELES (AP) – With leading scorer Anze Kopitar sidelined for the playoffs and Jarret Stoll suspended one game, the Los Angeles Kings have found some much-needed offense among their defensemen.

Drew Doughty notched four points in the Kings’ 4-0 victory over the San Jose Sharks that tied their first-round playoff series at a game apiece. Besides scoring twice, Doughty assisted on a power-play goal by fellow defenseman Jack Johnson and a rebound goal by forward Kyle Clifford.

Stoll will be back for Game 3 on Tuesday night at Staples Center.

The Sharks will need at least one win in the next two games to regain home ice advantage and avoid facing elimination when the series returns to the Bay Area.
