They commanded every facet of the game with the ice appearing tilted towards the Sharks' net and a power play in double overtime looking like the crack would finally break the dam.
San Jose nearly won it in the first overtime but then finally were able to stay alive when Tomas Hertl, who after Game 5 predicted there would be a Game 7, scored a shorthanded goal. "I think that will help cut down on some shots, and obviously we want to spend a little more time on the attack as well".
"It's huge, in our building too because right away from the first minute we get the fans behind our back", Hertl said. "That's what playoffs are about".
However, the veteran was able to flip the script, helping his team win after being outshot 59-29. He has come up big when the Sharks have needed him the most and we all expect it once again come Tuesday.
With Vegas carrying momentum from Marchessault's goal that tied the score with 8:40 left in the second period, Jones' biggest save came against Reilly Smith, whose point-blank one-timer was stymied. San Jose has won the last two games and has home ice advantage, but it's been clear Vegas has been the better side. Speculation before the game had backup Aaron Dell as the possible starter but Sharks' head coach Peter DeBoer would have none of it and stuck with Jones, who stopped 30 shots including a handful of the highlight reel variety. Speaking of which, I wrote a column predicting the Knights would win this best-of-seven series because of better goaltending, better offense, and a tighter defense. The man who in Games 2, 3 and 4 had a.796 save percentage and 7.62 goals-against average has allowed one even-strength goal in two games since and posted a.967 save percentage. "It's playoff hockey and yeah, we're facing elimination, so we're going to be a desperate team and hopefully we play that way, and we compete better than we did last game".

"I like the way our team's played", Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said.
"It's a tough one", Marchessault said. "One of those was bound to go in eventually". Guys weren't getting behind us. MyBookie.ag listed both the Sharks and the Golden Knights at -110. They also have the added stress of knowing in the back of their minds that they held a 3-1 lead in the series before a bitter overtime defeat.

The Sharks are 21-16-4 in road games. The Sharks will hope for a repeat performance in Game 7 on Tuesday in San Jose. "I'm sure the media has written and talked about what they wanted, but the main thing is the confidence in this room never wavered", forward Logan Couture said.
