The San Jose Sharks are no stranger to adversity this season, and certainly haven’t lacked season-defining moments. The fact that they now face a steep challenge in Game 3 to climb back into the series should surprise no one, the Sharks least of all.

Storming from 11th place in the West to capturing the second seed, the miraculous comeback against the Kings, or the Game 7 win against the Red Wings.

Here are five reasons why.
