Sharks try to shrug off Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Kings in Game 5

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Sharks are glad to be returning home.

Sharks coach Todd McLellan anticipates a few minor adjustments and no big personnel changes as San Jose looks to rebound from Thursday night's 3-0 loss at the Los Angeles Kings in their Western Conference semifinal series.

The Sharks, who held a team meeting and optional ice time Friday, return home down 3-2 to the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Game 6 is Sunday night. The home team has won the first five games of the series.

McLellan called Thursday's loss the team's weakest effort yet in the playoffs and was determined to reverse that in time for a chance to force Game 7.

Veteran forward Adam Burish, out since Game 2 against Vancouver, has been practicing and could be available. Jason Demers had his first action of the playoffs Thursday night, though it was a limited appearance as a forward.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
