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'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
