2011 NHL Playoffs: Detroit Red Wings Sink San Jose Sharks, 3-1, Force Game 7

By all accounts, this series should have been over and the San Jose Sharks should have been ready to play their best game to put Detroit away.  

Someone must have forgot to tell the Sharks skaters, as they carelessly let yet another lead, yet another game slip through their hands.

Stopping the trend of blown leads in the semifinals was a must for San Jose, having dropped Game 4 and 5 in such manner.  

Coming off their first two-game slide this postseason, the Sharks had quite a few question marks heading into their third consecutive attempt to advance.

Without their leading scorer in Ryane Clowe, question marks over Niemi, and a media storm surrounding Patrick Marleau the Sharks went belly-up.

HP Pavilion will hold the final game of the series, as Game 7 promises to be a sure one with emotions running high on both sides.

Awaiting the victor of this series  are the rested Vancouver Canucks, fresh off their series clinching Game 6 versus the Nashville Predators on Monday.
