VEGAS - Today on Easter Sunday, the Golden Knights and San Jose Sharks square off in game six of their best of seven series with implications on the line.

The Sharks forced a game six by defeating the Golden Knights in the previous contest in front of their home crowd at SAP Center by a 5-2 final. 

San Jose goaltender Martin Jones had a serious bounce-back performance in net for the Sharks in game five where he recorded his highest save percentage of the series at .938. In a very important game five win for San Jose, Jones turned away 30 of 32 shots he faced from the Golden Knights shooters. 

For Jones, he'll look to build on that with the potential to steal game six in Vegas today.

San Jose currently trails 3-2 in the series to the Golden Knights so it's important for them to bring their best road game performance of this matchup if they want to extend the series past today.

On the other end of the ice, Marc-Andre Fleury did not have a very good showing in net for the Golden Knights in game five back in San Jose. In the loss, he allowed four goals on 28 shots and posted a .857 save percentage. So if the Golden Knights want to close out the series today, Fleury will need to be sharp between the pipes.

In the last game, the Golden Knights high octane second line of Mark Stone, Paul Stastny, and Max Pacioretty were kept off the scoresheet. They went a combined -6 collectively as a group in the 5-2 loss.

Tomas Hertl was one the stars for the Sharks in their game five 5-2 win against the Golden Knights, the other was on the blueline in Erik Karlsson where he recorded two assists in the victory. 

Entering today, the Golden Knights have appeared in one previous game six in franchise history that dates back to last years playoffs. In that appearance, Vegas defeated San Jose 3-0 at SAP Center in the second round. So for the youngest team in the league, they have an opportunity to keep their game six playoff record perfect.

The Sharks when facing elimination is 13-20 all time. They'll look to improve on that a bit today.

Entering into today's game six, San Jose's Joe Thornton is one assist away from hitting 100 in the playoffs.
