Sharks looking to forget Game 6

DETROIT - The post-game instructions from San Jose Sharks coach Todd McLellan were simple.
“I just told them let’s get out of here quick,” said McLellan after a 3-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings in Game 6 Tuesday night at Joe Louis Arena.
McLellan was disgusted with the club’s performance in a game that meant so much. It's going to be a long trip back to San Jose.
“The performance was disappointing,” said McLellan. “One team skated. The other team did not skate at all and that was pretty evident right through the first two periods.
“We’re fortunate our goaltender even gave us a chance to be remotely involved in the game in the third period. From that perspective it’s disappointing.”
The Sharks won’t be favoured even though they’re the home team.
“We’ve just got to refocus,” said captain Joe Thornton. “We’ve got to forget about (Tuesday) and get ready for Game 7. We didn’t play very well.”
