The San Jose Sharks face the Colorado Avalanche for Game Six of the Second Round tonight at Pepsi Center.
The Sharks took a 2-1 Game Five victory over the Avalanche at SAP Center in San Jose on Saturday. The Avalanche got on the word first in the second period but Team Teal responded with both goals from Tomas Hertl who registered his second multi-goal performance in the 2019 playoffs.
Martin Jones stopped 21 of 22 shots for his second game in which he allowed only one goal against. Logan Couture, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Erik Karlsson and Joonas Donskoi all registered assists. The win also marked San Jose's third comeback victory in the playoffs this year.
The Avalanche look to stay alive tonight and use the benefits of home-ice, as the Sharks have a 3-2 lead in the best of seven series with the potential of advancing to the Western Conference Finals tonight.
