Get live NHL Stanley Cup playoff updates, news and analysis during Game 6 of the Sharks’ Western Conference Finals series against the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday at 5 p.m. at Enterprise Center.
The Sharks have lost two straight games, most recently Sunday’s 5-0 shellacking at home, and now must battle to stay alive while down 3-2 in the best-of-7 series. It will be tougher than ever for San Jose to be resilient as it will be without stars Tomas Hertl and Erik Karlsson, and perhaps, captain Joe Pavelski.
Neither Hertl nor Karlsson made the trip to St. Louis after both were injured in Game 5. Karlsson seemed to reinjure his groin. Pavelski incurred a hard check that included a blow to his head and is considered a game-time decision.
None of this is promising news for a Sharks team that’s been outscored 7-1 in the past two games.
St. Louis, which got a hat trick from Jaden Schwartz in Sunday’s win, is one victory away from its first Stanley Cup Final since 1970.

If the Sharks can regain some of their earlier postseason magic and win Tuesday, then Game 7 will be Thursday night at SAP Center. A St. Louis victory means the Blues would square off against the Bruins in the finals starting May 27 in Boston.
