Kings’ Martin Frk scores twice in debut during overtime win over Sharks

Martin Frk scored two third-period goals in his debut with the Kings, and Jeff Carter scored the winner in overtime as Los Angeles beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2 on Friday night.

Frk scored his first goal early in the third and cut a two-goal Sharks lead in half. He tied it with another score with 1:24 left in regulation.

Jack Campbell had 22 saves as the Kings snapped a three-game skid.

Joe Thornton snapped a 47-game goal-scoring drought and added an assist for the Sharks, who lost their fourth straight and are 1-9-1 over their last 11.

Thornton hadn’t scored in a regular-season game since March 18 of last season.

Aaron Dell turned back 33 shots for San Jose.

Thornton scored at 11:39 of the second on a backhanded pass from Radim Simek, giving San Jose a 2-0 lead.

Erik Karlsson also scored for San Jose. Karlsson scored on a wrist shot from just inside the blue line at 6:16 of the second. His fourth goal broke a scoreless tie.

Thornton had an assist on Karlsson’s goal, the 1,078th of his career. He needs one more to tie Adam Oates for seventh on the NHL’s all-time list.

The 26-year-old Frk, who signed with the Kings as an unrestricted free agent on July 1, was recalled from Ontario of the WHL on Monday.
