So did the San Jose Sharks choke?  Or are the Detroit Red Wings just not prepared to go down without a fight?  After having a second chance to put the Wings away, San Jose lost on home ice to Detroit last night, sending game six back to “The Joe”.  Seems like I typed something very similar yesterday about the Can’t Nucks.  What if Vancouver and San Jose were to meet in the next round?  Would either team want to win?
