SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Whether it's been after a heart-stopping win or a crushing loss, San Jose Sharks coach Todd McLellan has always been consistent in his belief that new momentum is created at the start of every game.

Never before has McLellan hoped more that his belief in a lack of a carry-over effect was true than heading into Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinal against the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night.

The Sharks have squandered a 3-0 series advantage and are on the brink of becoming just the fourth NHL team ever to lose a best-of-seven series after winning the first three games.

The Red Wings would seem to have all the momentum heading into Game 7 when they look to add another memorable accomplishment for a franchise that has won four Stanley Cup titles since 1997.
