A dizzying 22-second span that led to a pair of Los Angeles power play goals turned what appeared to be destined to be a tied series into an 0-2 hole for the San Jose Sharks.

The Sharks players say it didn't take much longer than that for them to put their Game 2 collapse behind them and turn their focus to defending home ice the next two games so they can tie their second-round series with the Kings.

San Jose hopes the confidence gained from scoring three goals against Jonathan Quick and taking a 3-2 lead into the final two minutes will carry over to Game 3 on Saturday night in front of what should be a raucous crowd at the Shark Tank. San Jose lost just two games in regulation all season at home.
