Last night, however, it was the Sharks that turned the tables on the Flames and engineered an important, impressive comeback victory. On a night when they didn't have the lead until the final 10 seconds of play, San Jose received a goal from Joe Thornton with time running out in regulation to register a stirring 3-2 come-from-behind win over the Flames, tying their best-of-seven Western Conference quarter-final playoff series at two games apiece.
San Jose, the consensus favourite in this year's postseason, was five minutes from going down 3-1 in the series, but two quick goals later, and now they're the favourites in this one again, a three-game series with two at the Shark Tank.
Calgary set a franchise record with just 10 shots in this one. Which means Evgeni Nabokov made eight saves in the win.
The Sharks look much better with Christian Ehrhoff back on the blue line and Kyle McLaren playing under 10 minutes.
Cousin B.J.'s verdict? "San Jose owned the puck."
Matt Fenwick has more.
