The start time for the Sharks-Kings Game 6 is officially at 5 p.m. on Sunday at HP Pavilion, after the Pittsburgh Penguins eliminated the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.

The Sharks, trailing in the second-round series three games to two, will attempt to force a decisive Game 7 in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The home team has won each of the first five games.

The Penguins’ victory also assures the Sharks of a second-round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. San Jose traded Douglas Murray to Pittsburgh for a second-round pick in 2013 and a conditional second-round pick in 2014, that was contingent upon the Penguins either re-signing Murray or advancing to the Eastern Conference finals.
