Los Angeles lost the shots on goal battle to San Jose by a margin of 31-22.

Next game, San Jose takes its act on the road to face Columbus looking for another win. For Los Angeles, they head home to face Philadelphia.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — The calendar said October, but the game felt more like one played in late spring.

Defenseman Brent Burns scored a tiebreaking goal early in the third period, and goalie Martin Jones slammed the door on his former team as the San Jose Sharks beat the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 Wednesday at SAP Center.

“It felt like a playoff game from the start,” said center Logan Couture, who scored San Jose’s first goal. “I’m happy for Sharks fans we won.”

The Sharks earned their seventh consecutive opening-night victory, the longest current streak of first-game success in the NHL.

Making the evening even more disappointing for Los Angeles was the fact that goalie Jonathan Quick exited after the first period due to a lower-body injury.

“We played the type of game we wanted to,” Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. “We made a couple of mistakes on the boards. They are a big heavy team in the offensive zone. We handled it pretty well. We should have done more in their zone.”

Jones allowed a goal to Tyler Toffoli on the Kings’ first shot, then stopped the final 21 shots he faced, including all seven in the second period and each of the Kings’ eight in the third.

“I like how we were defensively tonight,” Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said. “We didn’t give up a whole lot. Jones made some saves when he needed to.”

Burns’ first goal of the season came 3:20 into the final period on a bit of a broken play. Sharks second-line right winger Joonas Donskoi’s attempted cross-ice feed from the left circle was blocked by diving Kings defenseman Drew Doughty right in the direction of a pinching Burns.

San Jose’s Norris Trophy finalist swiped a shot past Kings relief goalie Jeff Zatkoff, who replaced Quick at the outset of the second period.

“I thought he held the fort,” Sutter said of Zatkoff. “He played really, really well.”

Burns continued his recent surge against the Kings. He has seven goals and nine assists for 16 points in the 11 meetings (including playoffs) between the California rivals since the start of last season.

The Sharks and Kings traded power-play goals and were tied 1-1 after 20 minutes, an opening period that featured San Jose outshooting Los Angeles 15-7 and maintaining territorial advantage.

Couture tripped Los Angeles captain Anze Kopitar 49 seconds after the opening faceoff following a turnover by Burns.

History repeated itself when Toffoli went top shelf, slipping a perfect shot over Jones’ left shoulder at 1:22. Toffoli also beat Jones on the game’s first shot last year, but not only did the Sharks rally for a 5-1 win on opening night, but Jones didn’t surrender another goal for a franchise-record 234:33.

The hosts tied it when Couture beat a screened Quick at 14:05, a shot from the edge of the left circle that came 52 seconds into winger Kyle Clifford’s interference penalty on San Jose defenseman David Schlemko.

Quick took exception to Sharks captain Joe Pavelski poking around his crease after the score. Quick jumped Pavelski to touch off a nine-player mini-scrum. Quick and Pavelski were assessed matching minors for roughing.

However, the goalie’s injury didn’t occur until inside the final minute of the period. Quick was hurt going post to post to deny Pavelski on a wrap-around attempt, but he finished out the period.

Sutter and general manager Dean Lombardi said Quick would undergo an MRI exam early Thursday. Quick said through a team spokesman, “It’s not good.”

Quick stopped 14 of 15 shots, and Zatkoff saved 15 of 16 shots.

“We all know what Quickie brings for our team and what he’s done here,” Toffoli said. “We can’t be thinking about that, we have to be positive. Zat’s played unbelievable coming into today. We’re confident in what he does for our team.”
