LOS ANGELES (AP) – Ryane Clowe scored two goals, Jason Demers added another in the second period and the San Jose Sharks beat the Los Angeles Kings 6-3 on Thursday night to take a 3-1 lead in the first-round series.

Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski scored in a 54-second span early in the third and Torrey Mitchell followed with his first goal of the playoffs to extend the Sharks’ lead.

They return to San Jose for Game 5 on Saturday night having swept the Kings on their home ice.

The Kings had a 5-on-3 for much of the final 3 minutes after Dany Heatley was penalized for cross-checking and Scott Nichol got a 10-minute misconduct, but they failed to convert.

 The frustrated Kings got two 10-minute misconducts themselves in the closing seconds.

The teams combined for five goals in the second — two fewer than they scored in the middle period in Game 3, when the Kings blew a four-goal lead to lose 6-5 in their second overtime defeat of the series.
