(SAN JOSE, Calif.) — The San Jose Sharks had their backs against the wall, and they responded.
Joe Thorton and T.J. Galiardi scored goals to lead the Sharks to a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings to force a decisive Game 7 in their Western Conference semifinal series.
“It’s followed the script. Home team wins back and forth,” Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. “It’s time for us to get there and try to change the story. We’re going to have to play a much better game than we did last time in that building. But they earned the right for home ice. It’s our job to take it away from them.”
Jonathan Quick made 24 saves for the Kings, who have lost 11 of their last 12 home games. Game seven will be played Tuesday night in Los Angeles, where the Kings have won 13 straight.
