Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Joe Thornton scored 2:22 into overtime, as the San Jose Sharks defeated the Los Angeles Kings, 4-3, in Game 6 to advance to the conference semifinals. The second-seeded Sharks bounced back from Saturday's 3-1 loss to win this Western Conference quarterfinal series 4-2. Antti Niemi made 26 saves for the Sharks, who are trying to embark on another deep playoff run after making it to the conference finals a year ago. San Jose was swept by Chicago in the third round last year.
Quisp from Jewels From The Crown blamed himself, superstitiously:
I fast-forwarded through the Kings' first power-play and they scored. So I fast-forwarded through the Kings' second power-play, and they scored. Then I fast-forwarded through the first three minutes of the 5 minute major and the recording ran out, so I watched the overtime live.
