Update 11:59pm ET: From TSN—
San Jose avoided becoming the fourth NHL team to lose a series after winning the first three games. A franchise known for its playoff flops avoided a colossal one and now heads into its second straight Western Conference final. That series begins Sunday in Vancouver.
More video, etc:
From Dave Lozo at NHL.com:
All that talk of the Sharks losing four straight after taking the first three games of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Detroit Red Wings?
On the precipice of becoming a footnote in one of the greatest comebacks in sports history, the Sharks came through in Game 7, holding off the Red Wings 3-2 in front of 17,562 raucous fans at HP Pavilion on Thursday night.
If the Sharks had any nervousness about becoming only the fourth team in NHL history to lose a series after leading 3-0, it didn’t show for a moment on Thursday. They dominated puck possession for much of the night, were strong in their own zone and were crisp from the time the puck was dropped until the final horn.
