from Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea,
Sharks goalie Alex Stalock will make his first career playoff start on Monday night, while defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic did not make the trip and will not play due to an upper body injury suffered on Saturday. The Sharks will try for a third time to close out the Kings in Monday night’s Game 6 at Staples Center, and lead the best-of-seven first round series, three games to two.
Stalock has come on in relief of Niemi in each of the last two games, stopping all 26 shots he’s faced, including 22 in Game 5.
That should help.
“I think so, playing in both rinks, too,” Stalock said. “Getting a feel for the series, the speed and intensity. Obviously, get a chance to start tonight, and it will be a lot of fun.”
“It’s a chance to close out the series, and that’s the ultimate goal.”
