After leaving San Jose with a Game 5 win, the Los Angeles Kings were hoping to make a quick return for a potential Game 7. In order for that to happen, L.A. needed its first home win of the series in Game 6. The Sharks, who still maintained a 3-2 series lead, had won both prior games in Southern California, scoring six goals in each one.
Los Angeles, which scored twice with the man-advantage earlier in the game, still had 1:37 of power-play time to begin OT, but didn’t even register a shot on goal. Not only had the Kings’ golden chance to win Game 6 slipped away, but less than a minute after the penalty ended, their season had as well. Sharks captain Joe Thornton slid a loose puck past Jonathan Quick at 2:22 of overtime to give San Jose a 4-3 win and eliminate L.A. from the playoffs. Thornton’s first career postseason OT goal clinched this Western Conference quarterfinal series for the Sharks in six games, with three of their four wins coming on the road and in overtime.
