Pavelski leads Sharks’ 5-1 rout of LA Kings in opener

LOS ANGELES — Captain Joe Pavelski had a goal and two assists, and Joonas Donskoi scored in his NHL debut in the San Jose Sharks’ 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night in both clubs’ season opener.

Joe Thornton and Brent Burns had a goal and an assist apiece, and Tomas Hertl also scored as the Sharks thoroughly dominated their California rivals in coach Peter DeBoer’s successful debut.

Pavelski was outstanding in his first game since being named the permanent captain of the Sharks, who won a season opener at Staples Center for the second straight year.

Martin Jones made 19 saves in his own debut for the Sharks against his former team, stopping everything after the Kings’ first shot. Nick Shore scored 1:49 into the first period.
