LA Kings still on brink of elimination, but they're gaining steam after 2 wins over Sharks

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - With every win on the brink of elimination, the Los Angeles Kings are demonstrating why they've been such a good playoff team for the past few years.

And with every failure to close out a previously one-sided series, the San Jose Sharks are failing to shake their reputation for coming up short in the spring.

The Kings have forced Game 6 in the California rivals' first-round series on Monday night, winning twice after falling into a three-game series deficit. Jeff Carter isn't impressed by the Kings' moves toward becoming just the fourth team in NHL history to advance from an 0-3 hole, noting it's been done before.

The Sharks could be without key defenceman Marc-Edouard Vlasic, who didn't practice Sunday after getting injured in the first period of Game 5.
