Sharks know effort must keep going up

SAN JOSE, Calif. — The Sharks didn't have much margin for error in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup final. Coach Pete DeBoer figures they'll have an even smaller one in Game 6 on Sunday.

"They're going to rebound with a very good game," DeBoer said Friday, referring to the Penguins. "Our game's going to have to be as good a game as we played all year if we want to push this to seven."

The Sharks trail in the series 3-2. They won Game 5 4-2 Thursday with a 44-save performance from Martin Jones and three goals on their first five shots. The Penguins are 5-1 in the playoffs after a loss; goalie Matt Murray is 5-0. They have lost back-to-back games this postseason once, to the Lightning in the Eastern Conference final.
