To call it a disaster would be an understatement. The Los Angeles Kings gave up five consecutive goals and lost Game 1 to the San Jose Sharks, 6-3. They responded with an excellent first period in Game 2, going up 2-0.

Make no mistake: This is different than last year when the Kings found themselves down 2-0 to the St. Louis Blues
