Sharks Beat Red Wings in Round 2
Patrick Marleau got his first point of the series when he scored with 7:47 left in the game and then made a huge defensive play in the final seconds as the San Jose Sharks beat the Detroit Red Wings on their fourth try with a 3-2 victory Thursday night in Game 7 of their Western Conference semifinal series.
“For him to end up with the winning goal was pretty special for our team and for him,” said Sharks head coach Todd McLellan. “I think the monkey may be off his back for the next series. … He was a difference maker tonight.”
San Jose avoided becoming the fourth NHL team to lose a series after winning the first three games. A franchise known for its playoff flops avoided a colossal one and now heads into its second straight Western Conference final.
