Martin Jones answered the bell Sunday with the San Jose Sharks' season on the line.

Jones turned aside 58 of 59 shots in a must-win Game 6, setting a franchise single-game record for saves. He surpassed Jeff Hackett's mark of 57 saves in 1992.

The 29-year-old was considered the Sharks' biggest liability entering the series. He struggled through a poor regular season, posting an .896 save percentage and a 2.94 goals-against average.

Until Sunday, Jones hadn't put Sharks fans at ease. He entered Game 6 with an .866 save percentage and a 4.37 goals-against average in the series and was yanked in Games 2 and 4.

However, the veteran was able to flip the script, helping his team win after being outshot 59-29. The Sharks will hope for a repeat performance in Game 7 on Tuesday in San Jose.
