(AP) Justin Williams scored in the third period, Jonathan Quick made 23 saves, and the Los Angeles Kings finished in fifth place in the Western Conference with a 3-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night.


Slava Voynov and Kyle Clifford also scored for the reigning Stanley Cup champions, who entered the regular-season finale in a fifth-place tie with the Sharks.


The Kings will begin their title defense at fourth-seeded St. Louis, which sneaked past Los Angeles and San Jose in the last week.


T.J. Galiardi and Logan Couture scored for the Sharks, who will begin their ninth consecutive playoff appearance at third-seeded Vancouver after losing three of their final four.


Brad Richardson had two assists for the Kings, who played without suspended captain Dustin Brown.
