The Sharks are perilously close to snatching defeat from the – er – jaws of victory in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
San Jose led the Detroit Red Wings 3-0 in the Western Conference semifinals until . . . they didn’t.
Detroit took Game 6 last night, and threatens to make San Jose the fourth NHL team to squander a 3-0 lead.
(Paging the Boston Bruins. Paging the 2010 Boston Bruins.)
From the New York Times:
Henrik Zetterberg and Valtteri Filppula scored less than two minutes apart in the third period, and the host Detroit Red Wings rallied again for a 3-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night, forcing a decisive seventh game after trailing by 3-0 in their pulsating second-round series.
It was a barn-burner alright, all the more exciting because the play-by-play announcer on the Versus broadcast was Mike Emrick, who the hardwatching staff believes calls the best game in professional hockey. (Evidence here.)
Se ya Thursday night, when we’ll find out the answer to the musical question, Do You Know the Way, San Jose?
