SAN JOSE -- Antti Niemi had just made 41 saves, then stopped the puck three more times for good measure in a shootout win. So, it was appropriate for Sharks captain Joe Thornton to gush about his goaltender. "You've been watching the same as us. He's been great for a long time. Last night he was great, tonight he was great. Three games ago he was great," Thornton said after the Sharks edged the Los Angeles Kings 3-2. "Every night he gives us a chance to win and I think he's the best goalie in the world."
