Harrison Ford (the world's second greatest Harrison, in the opinion of some), takes in Game 6 between the Sharks and Kings.
No. 1 Star: Antti Niemi, San Jose Sharks
With their backs against the wall, the Sharks got a stellar performance from Niemi, who stopped 24 of 25 shots in San Jose's 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings. How he didn't get one of the three star nods at the game is criminal.
No. 2 Star: Adam Burish, San Jose Sharks
Hear me out. Burish made a huge impact in his Game 6 return, stepping onto the Sharks' fourth line instantly turning it into their most effective line in this game. He won all four faceoffs he took, he has a game-high 4 shots, and his line, with Andrew Desjardins and Bracken Kearns, was the only San Jose trio to finish with an even-strength Corsi (plus/minus for shots attempted) in the pluses. Burish finished plus-7, and Desjardins and Kearns both finished plus-8. Great game for Burish.
No. 3 Star: Joe Thornton, San Jose Sharks
Thornton opened the scoring for the Sharks at 6:09 of the first period, which is ideal, since the Sharks are undefeated in this postseason when scoring first.A video or other embedded content has been hidden. Click here to view it.

Did You Know? The home team is 18-3 in Round 2.
Dishonourable mention: Dustin Brown's dive on Dan Boyle's high-sticking penalty was pretty egregious and crummy. Be sneakier, Brown. That's why we love you.
