The Sharks exorcised some demons Friday night when they eliminated the rival Kings in Game 5 of the first round.
San Jose fended off a comeback at Staples Center to win 6-3, taking the series, and setting up a Round 2 matchup with the winner of Ducks-Predators.
After the game, newly acquired forward Joel Ward signified the end of the series on Twitter with a tribute to recently deceased icon Prince.
Game....Blouses!— Joel Ward (@JRandalWard42) April 23, 2016
Ward is citing a line from a Chappelle's Show skit that featured comedian Dave Chappelle as Prince.
Prince passed away Thursday, April 21, 2016. He was 57 years old.
