Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about Thursday.
The Sharks are on to the Stanley Cup Final with nifty netminding. San Jose beat the Blues 5-2 in Game 6 to win the Western Conference Finals. With the Sharks up 2-0 midway through the second period, it looked like the Blues were going to cut the lead to one when Martin Jones stopped Jori Lehtera’s point-blank shot. The Sharks would eventually jump out to a 4-0 lead and it was game over.
The Cavs righted the ship at home. Just when it looked like the Cavaliers were vulnerable after two-straight losses, they blew out the Raptors 116-78 in Game 5 and are now one win from the NBA Finals. The Cavs’ Big 3 each scored at least 23 points and Kevin Love and LeBron James connected on this long-range bomb as Cleveland jumped out to a 65-34 halftime lead.

Fairchild climbed a videoboard in the outfield to rob Louisville of a home run.
