10:26 AM ET 05.27 | The San Jose Sharks needed a win in Game 6 to keep their Stanley Cup dreams alive, and they were able to do just that on Sunday night with a relaxed attitude and level headed approach to the game. Now, with a do-or-die Game 7 scheduled for Tuesday night, Sharks head coach Todd McLellan is trying to take all of the pressure off of his team by saying that there is no pressure to get the win.

They better skate better, or they won't be skating again 'til September. Two hints: headman it, and, dump it in the corner and turn THEM around, then go get it. You gotta make it happen on the road - and hope the LA-la's don't watch the way Detroit quicks it out-and-up for the win, despite the pressure.

I wouldn't exactly word it that way, but I agree with you.

Nothing to lose? Really? How about Game 7? How about the Series? That's a lot to lose in my book.

I'm not sure, but I don't think I'd want you making the between period speech when you're tied in the series clincher. I doubt you'd get 'em calm, cool and focused on winning. Just a guess.
