Comments from Sharks’ locker room after 2-1 win in Game 6

Following their 2-1 win over the visiting LA Kings, here’s what was being said back in the San Jose Sharks’ locker room…

Head Coach Todd McLellan: “It was like that earlier in the series. It was there again today. We didn’t quite have that in game 5 in LA. They were loose and ready to play. We really don’t have anything to lose. We’re going one Game 7 against the Stanley Cup Champs in their building, so we look forward to that challenge.”

McLellan on approaching Game 7: “It’s followed the script. Home team wins back and forth. It’s time for us to get there and try to change the story. We’re going to have to play a much better game than we did last time in that building. But they earned the right for home-ice. It’s our job to take it away from them.”

Captain Joe Thornton: “It’s important [to take a 1-0 lead]. It seems whoever scores first wins the game, and we did that. Just a huge game tonight.”

Thornton on Galiardi’s play: “He’s been playing real well, skating real well. He’s kind of been snakebitten lately, but it’s just a matter of time before he scores. What a bigger goal than that tonight.”

Defenseman Dan Boyle: “That’s three 2-1 victories [at home]. You never know, but that first goal is huge. It gives you a little breathing room, and you get to try to get the next one. Obviously tonight that was a huge goal by Gali. It’s tough out there. It definitely picked up the last two games.”

Boyle on the third period: “Simple hockey. Getting it out, getting it in, nobody getting caught. No odd-man rushes, just be smart.”
