Not much needs to be said about today's game. It's a big one, like every game this time of year. The Sharks can close out the series on home ice this evening, but it won't be easy. The Kings have had a rough go of things over the past two games and they will be looking for some redemption.
Many people, myself included, predicted the Sharks would win this series in five games. If that ends up being the case, it will have been a very very close five games. The Kings have really pushed the Sharks around at times and have punished the Sharks for lazy or undisciplined play. If San Jose can manage to advance they will be a stronger team for having had to get past Los Angeles.
Let's get it done tonight, Sharks - the Red Wings are already relaxing on their Euro-asses.
Prediction: Everybody plays defense a whole lot. Sharks win 2-1.
