With another chance to eliminate San Jose from their heated best-of-seven series, the Golden Knights remain a loose bunch that still hasn’t played its best in the postseason.
San Jose has 5-2 victories in the two Western Conference quarterfinal playoff games against the Golden Knights in which Marc-Edouard Vlasic has started and finished.
San Jose forward Tomas Hertl said the Sharks were better than the Golden Knights and would win Game 6 in Las Vegas to force Game 7 at SAP Center.
The Golden Knights won playoff series last year in Los Angeles, San Jose and Winnipeg. They would like to add Las Vegas to that list when they host the Sharks on Sunday in Game 6.
