After the Game 5 victory last Thursday, Sharks forward Tomas Hertl told an arena full of jubilant San Jose fans that there would be a Game 7 in their series against the Golden Knights.
"I know we have one more game and come back for Game 7," he said. "I believe it. We're a better team than them."
His short-handed goal in double overtime in Game 6 on Sunday delivered on that proclamation, giving the Sharks a 2-1 win in Las Vegas and a 3-3 series tie to force Game 7 on Tuesday night.
