Los Angeles Kings vs San Jose Sharks takes place in the Stanley Cup Playoffs Western Conference Semifinals Game 6 on Sunday night, with the Kings looking to win only their second road game of the playoffs. The game is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
If the Kings win on the road tonight they will close out the series and move into the Conference Finals. However, they will have a difficult challenge to win in San Jose, and the Sharks could be favorites to claim a home win and turn this series into a one match shoot out in Game 7.
So far this series has gone entirely with the home team – with each of the five games so far being won by the home team. The Kings will need to break that cycle if they are to win the series in Game 7 in San Jose.
However, the Sharks will be hoping that the homer series continues tonight to make the series 3-3, and then they themselves would have the challenge to break the home-win streak if they are to win the series in Game 7, which takes place in Los Angeles.
The chances of the Kings ending things here tonight though are slim, if history remains consistent – they have lost four of their five on the road games away from the Staples Center in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
However, that might not worry them too much, because even if they lose tonight they will travel back home for Game 7 where they are 6-0 this postseason.
