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.

Quote of the Day

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.

— Forward Scott Hartnell on his upcoming season with the Columbus Blue Jackets
