Twitter Tales: #NoKingsNo
After having a successful 2-0 run at home, the Sharks headed to LA for Game 3 and were determined to win in a building that they've had trouble with in the past. Both teams battled it out in overtime, but the Sharks scored to gain a 3-0 series lead and satisfaction of winning in LA.
Minions ready for some Sharks hockey!
Welcome to LA.
