(NHL playoffs) Marleau leads San Jose past LA in extra period
(04-23 14:08)

Patrick Marleau scored on a backhand 6:20 into overtime, and San Jose moved to the brink of the second round with a victory over Los Angeles to take a 3-0 first-round series lead.
Rookie Tomas Hertl tied it with 10:43 left in regulation for the Sharks, who survived a much-improved effort from their bitter California rivals after two blowout wins in San Jose.
Marleau ended it for the Sharks with his third goal of the series. His shot banked off Kings defenseman Slava Voynov's stick on its way past Jonathan Quick, who made 36 saves in his third straight loss.
Antti Niemi stopped 28 shots for the Sharks.
Game 4 is Thursday in Los Angeles.
The Sharks have won five straight overtime playoff games and 10 of their past 11, with Marleau scoring four game-winning goals during that remarkable stretch.
Los Angeles has slipped to the brink of first-round elimination just two years after its Stanley Cup title run. --AP
