(SportsNetwork.com) - The Los Angeles Kings finally broke through with a win in the Western Conference first round the last time out. The Kings hope to stave off elimination again when they visit the San Jose Sharks for Saturdays Game 5 at SAP Center. The Kings dropped the first three games of this best-of-seven series to get pushed to the brink of elimination, but Los Angeles survived one do-or-die game with Thursdays 6-3 home victory against the Sharks. Of course, L.A. needs to make NHL history in order to make it out of the first round. Only the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, 1975 New York Islanders and 2010 Philadelphia Flyers have won a best-of-seven series after dropping the first three games. The Kings, however, have not had success in San Jose in recent years and those struggles extend into the postseason. Los Angeles outlasted the Sharks in seven games during last springs meeting in the conference semifinals, but it lost all three outings in San Jose. The Sharks, who hold the home-ice advantage in this set, have beaten the Kings in 12 of the past 13 meetings as the host, including Games 1 and 2 of this set. San Jose is 6-2 all-time against the Kings in home playoff games. "Going into their building, every home team thrives off of their crowd and their home building this time of year," said Kings captain Dustin Brown. "So we need to be prepared to do the little things and the right things, especially early, and again, chip away. You cant look too far ahead, especially against a team like this." Marian Gaborik and Justin Williams each scored twice to help the Kings post Thursdays win and make their first step towards a monumental comeback. Jonathan Quick stopped 36 shots to help L.A. avoid the sweep. The game was tied 2-2 in the second before Williams and Tyler Toffoli tallied 2:54 apart late in the frame to send the Kings into the third with a 4-2 lead. Gaborik scored his second of the night 34 seconds into the third, and Quick, despite giving up a power-play goal to Joe Pavelski at 11:36, made enough saves down the stretch to extend Los Angeles season. Brown added an empty-netter with 1:28 remaining to account for the final margin. "Were certainly happy we got the win but we feel we have a long road to go obviously," Williams said. "Youre happy to play in the playoffs but you want to excel in the playoffs and we havent been able to do that so far in this series. Were trying to push it game by game and win one more next game." Los Angeles does have a few players on its roster that were part of a 3-0 playoff comeback. Kings forwards Jeff Carter and Mike Richards were both members of the 2010 Flyers team that stormed back to beat Boston in the conference semifinals after losing the first three games. Carter, however, missed that historic series with a broken foot before returning later in the playoffs to help Philadelphia make a surprise run to the Cup Finals. James Sheppard and Matt Nieto each scored once for the Sharks. Antti Niemi allowed five goals on 26 shots before being pulled early in the third in favor of Alex Stalock, who made four saves in relief. "We didnt execute anywhere near the way they did," San Jose head coach Todd McLellan said. "When we go back to the goals its quite easy to pinpoint some of the mistakes that we made and for us to have success moving forward, that has to get cleaned up quickly." A win tonight will get San Jose into the second round for the fourth time in five seasons. The Kings were last eliminated in the opening round in 2011, when San Jose beat them in six games. If L.A. wins Saturdays Game 5 then the series will continue Monday in Los Angeles. Paul Kariya Jersey .m. ET, CBSOPENING LINE — Falcons by 3 1/2RECORD VS.

HEROES Blake Comeau – The Penguins winger had a hat trick in a 4-3 overtime win against Toronto.ATZENBRUGG, Austria -- Mikael Lundberg ended a six-year title drought with a gutsy 40-foot putt in a playoff against Bernd Wiesberger to win the Lyoness Open on Sunday. The Swede birdied the first playoff hole to deny Wiesberger a second victory at his home event after 2012. It was Lundbergs third European Tour title after winning the Russian Open in 2005 and 2008. "It feels fantastic, it was very nice. I made a fantastic putt," said Lundberg, who was six strokes off the lead overnight. "I knew I was far behind and I even didnt think I was going to win. I was just hoping to play well." Lundberg, who made three birdies in a row on his way to a 65, and Wiesberger, who shot 69, were tied at 12 under after the fourth round. Defending champion Joost Luiten, who teed off the final day with a two-shot lead over Wiesberger, carded a par 72. The Dutchman finished third, one stroke off the lead. "I didnt play great," Luiten said. "Nothing went my way, really ... If you are two clear, you want to win, you want to finish it off. If you dont do that, you are disappointed." Englands Lee Slattery, who was second after Fridays play, scored 66 to finish another stroke back in fourth. Lundberg topped the leaderboard for the first two days but looked to have squandered his chances with a 4-over 76 on Saturday. "I felt a little bit more pressure going into the third round since I was leading," Lundberg said. "Today was slightly better, not the long shots, but my short game was very goood.dddddddddddd That changed everything." Lundbergs improved short game helped him overcome several disappointing seasons that left him wondering if he was ever going to win a title again. Just weeks ago, he started working with coach Neil Jordan, and said he has been gaining confidence from the co-operation. "I have been struggling," said the 40-year-old Lundberg, who came through Q School for the last three years. "We started working on a few things. Not very different things, just basics ... I worked a little bit more on my short game which is now starting to pay off." It was Lundbergs second win in a playoff after the Russian Open in 2005 . With a victory, Wiesberger would have become the first Austrian to qualify for the U.S. Open. He can still make it but is now dependent on results from the St. Jude Classic in Memphis, Tennessee, later Sunday. Wiesberger was loudly cheered through the sun-soaked day by a large home crowd. He soon overtook Luiten with birdies on the first and third hole and stayed ahead of the Dutchman almost throughout. However, he lost a one-stroke lead over Lundberg with three holes to play. "I had it in my hands," Wiesberger said. "He had a great putt, he deserves it but I lost it a bit. I didnt play great." Daniel Im of the United States carded the lowest score of the tournament with a 8-under 64 despite double-bogeying the par-4 fifth. Im had 10 birdies including five on the final six holes to finish 7 under for the tournament. ' ' '
