Trailing the Vegas Golden Knights 3-1 in their best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal and faced with major goaltending issues, things are looking pretty bleak for the San Jose Sharks heading into Thursday night's Game 5 in San Jose.
San Jose has lost three in a row, including 5-0 on Tuesday night, while being outscored 16-6, and starting goaltender Martin Jones hasn't made it to the second period in two of the losses after being pulled following shaky starts. So what gives the Sharks hope they can rebound to win the series?
"We're still playing," said forward Logan Couture. "We've got a chance. It's never over till it's over. We go home to where we've been good all year ... try to win a game, and that's that."
