SAN JOSE - The puck drops a bit earlier than usual.

The San Jose Sharks can't afford to show up late.

Facing elimination in their second-round series with the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings, the Sharks are keying on a strong start in Sunday's Game 6 at HP Pavilion (5 p.m. PT, TSN).

“It's just one of those places you love to play. You hear from other guys when they come in that it's a tough place to play,” said Sharks winger Joe Pavelski.
