by Mike Lee
San Jose capped off their short 2-game home stand by exacting some revenge on the New York Islanders 4-1 at SAP Center on Saturday.

Special teams corrected for a game
San Jose unloads on Sabres in 5-1 drubbing
by Mike Lee
Special teams play has been the Sharks Achilles heal so far this season. Ranked in the bottom third on both the power play and penalty kill, San Jose used special teams on both sides of the puck as a point of emphasis on Thursday night as they returned home for the first time since opening night on 15 days ago. Logan Couture led the charge, as San Jose scored three power play goals en route to a 5-1 drubbing of the visiting Buffalo Sabres.

Sharks blow yet another 3rd period lead
Road trip performance is simply average
by Mike Lee
Mediocre teams find a way to be mediocre. The Sharks are a mediocre team at best right now. As has become a troubling trend, the Sharks failed to put a team away in the 3rd period in the last leg of their 5-game road trip and end up losing 3-2 to the New Jersey Devils on Sunday afternoon. San Jose coughed up a 3rd period lead by allowing a pair of goals in the final frame, losing for the third time in five tries on the trip.

by Mike Lee
Playing the fourth game of their five game road trip and third time in four nights, the Sharks squandered a chance to grab two points from the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night.

Offense explodes in Philly
SJ unloads on the Flyers with 8 goals in win
by Mike Lee
If the Sharks loss in Brooklyn on Monday afternoon was a case of missed opportunities, then they figured out how to capitalize on them in short order. Playing a day after their ugly 4-0 loss to the Islanders, the Sharks pummeled the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night 8-1 at the Wells Fargo Center. Evander Kane had a pair of goals, and Kevin Labanc added 4 assists on the night to propel the Sharks, who draw to an even 2-2-0 record.

Sharks take Columbus Day off
Islanders welcome newcomers with spanking
by Mike Lee
The Sharks hit the eastern seaboard with a stop in Brooklyn to take on the New York Islanders at Barclays Center in a matinee match-up on Columbus Day. The 1pm faceoff was essentially a morning start for the Sharks who hit the snooze on the alarm, dropping an awful 4-0 decision to the host Islanders. San Jose went toe-to-toe with the Islanders for 20 minutes, then decided to go back to bed, with another disastrous 3rd period.

Sharks goaltending takes opening night off
by Paul Krill
The table was set. The Sharks would open at home Wednesday night in front of an enthusiastic sellout crowd, with new star Erik Karlsson taking the ice and Joe Thornton returning to action after nine months off. They would be facing off against the Anaheim Ducks, the same team the Sharks swept in the playoffs last year, which would play without one of its stars, Corey Perry.

Opening night cobwebs costs Sharks
Ducks big 3rd period sinks San Jose
by Mike Lee
The Sharks kicked of their 2018-19 campaign with a home affair, pulling back the curtain on their shiny new defenseman in Erik Karlsson at SAP Center on Wednesday night. The Karlsson unveiling was the highlight of the night for the Sharks, who played 40 minutes of hockey before rolling over in the 3rd period. Beset with injuries, the visiting Anaheim Ducks scored four unanswered goals across the final 22 minutes of the game to spoil the party with a big 5-2 win.

Martin Jones leads Sharks to big 4-0 victory
by Mike Lee
Like death and taxes, the Sharks once again find themselves facing playoff elimination after the Vegas Golden Knights defeated them 5-3 at T-Mobile Arena on Friday night. The Sharks didn't show up until the second half of the 3rd period, but by then they trailed 4-0. that lead would prove insurmountable, even though they scored three goals in the final period.

WCSF Game 4: Sharks knot series with win
Martin Jones leads Sharks to big 4-0 victory
by Mike Lee
If the Sharks continue to play the way they did on Wednesday evening at SAP Center, then the Vegas Knights have a tall order to deal with. The Sharks morphed into a hard-hitting, quick skating, forecheck commanding brute in Game 4 of San Jose's Western Conference Semi Finals series with Vegas. San Jose kept a constant stream of pressure on a Knights team that looked vulnerable for the first time in the series. The Sharks rolled four lines that kept the Knights on their heels most of the game, and received goal scoring from four different skaters. Martin Jones made 34 saves for his second shutout of these playoffs.

Knights grab series lead with 4-3 overtime win
by Mike Lee
The Sharks grabbed the home ice advantage on Saturday when they beat the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 2 of their Western Conference Semi Final series. They promptly handed that advantage back to Vegas on Monday night, after losing 4-3 in overtime at SAP Center. The Sharks battled back from a 3-1 deficit by scoring a pair of goals in the 3rd period, but William Karlsson took advantage of a defensive miscue by the Sharks to score 8:17 into the extra period.

WCSF Game 1: Sharks embarrassed in opener
Vegas pounds SJ 7-0
by Mike Lee
The Conference Semi-Finals kicked off in Las Vegas on Thursday night, but somebody forgot to tell the Sharks. San Jose showed up for an ice cream social, but instead got punched in the mouth, kicked in the groin and spit on by the expansion Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena in a lop-sided 7-0 loss. So much for sweeping the Anaheim Ducks. The Sharks quick disposal of Anaheim meant nothing to the Knights, who scored at will, and simply man-handled San Jose in a game that set an ominous tone.

This Should be Fun!!
Two paths to the next round
by Ryan Hall
Wednesday night, with a deft flick of his wrist, Tomas Hertl sent the puck into the net, and drove a dagger into the heart of the Anaheim Ducks. While it's easy to get caught up in the emotion of the event, what happened in San Jose was simply the latest counter-move in a season long contest between the Sharks and Las Vegas Golden Knights. Now, after 86 games, these two teams will have a chance to settle things definitively, with the Pacific Division crown on the line.

WCQF Game4: Sharks sweep Ducks out of the playoffs
Martin Jones and Tomas Hertl lead Sharks to series win
by Mike Lee
With a little more than five minutes remaining in regulation of Wednesday night's series deciding Game 4 of the Sharks Western Conference Quarter Finals series with Anaheim, Jakob Silfverberg was faced with the biggest paradox of his season. Silfverberg was mixing it up with Sharks defenseman Brent Burns as a whistle sounded stopping play. Burns stood there with his arms planted at his side, smirking like a school boy on the first day of summer vacation. Silfverberg wanted to put his stick through Burns' god awful beard, but he couldn't. The Ducks were slowly dying as time was slowly ticking away on their season and Silfverberg couldn't pull the trigger like all his Duckish instincts had taught him to do. He couldn't because his team was trailing by a goal. What a glorious moment for Burns.

WCQF Game 3: Duck mauling at the Tank

by Mike Lee
The Sharks Western Conference Quarter Finals series with the Anaheim Ducks shifted to San Jose on Monday night, and by the time the smoke cleared the Sharks are on the verge of ending the series within the next 48 hours.

WCQF Game 1: Sharks take care of business
SJ opens the series with a 3-0 win in SoCal
by Mike Lee
Evander Kane played in 574 career regular season NHL games without having the opportunity to taste playoff hockey. He finally got his chance in Game 1 of the Sharks Western Conference Quarter Finals match up with the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night, and he made the most of his chance by scoring a pair of goals in the Sharks 3-0 victory at the Honda Center in Southern California. Many of his Shark teammates played like it was their first chance at playoff redemption.

2018 Playoffs - Quarter Finals Predictions
We call it like we see it
by LGS Staff
Playoff time! For those of us who were seeing the Sharks all season long as a “meh” team that might or might not make the post-season, the late acquisitions of Evander Kane and Eric Fehr were a wake up. They also woke up the team that never seemed to put more than three good games in a row.

Sharks hold serve in 3rd period
SJ subdues desperate Avalanche late for 4-2 win
by Mike Lee
A desperate Colorado Avalanche hockey team made its way to SAP Center on Thursday night in an attempt to gain on the St Louis Blues for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Sharks rained on the Avalanche's party by scoring three goals in the 3rd period to take a 4-2 decision.

No show Sharks giveaway a win
3rd period implosion costs San Jose
by Mike Lee
If there was ever an example of checking out early, Tuesday night's Sharks game versus the Dallas Stars was it. After grabbing a commanding 2-0 lead in the opening period, the Sharks lulled themselves to sleep in the middle frame, before imploding in the third period. Dallas scored four unanswered goals, including three in that fateful final period to sink the Sharks. The loss also meant that the Los Angeles Kings climb to within two points in the standings with two games to play.

Sharks hand Vegas division crown
Botched power play ends in disaster
by Mike Lee
All those visions of catching the Vegas Knights and overtaking them for the Pacific Division crown can be silently swept under the rug. The Sharks dropped their last regular season match up with the Knights at T-Mobile Arena in Nevada on Saturday night on a botched power play, ending any thoughts of division title. The 3-2 loss to Vegas also extended the Sharks losing streak to three games. San Jose needs two points to secure a playoff spot, with three games to play.

New Day Dawning
Playoff field playing out
by Ryan Hall
The NHL playoffs begin in 2 weeks. When they kick off on April 11th, the league will shift into overdrive with the usual flair that accompanies the start of the post-season festivities. For nearly 2 months a field of 16 teams will be whittled down to a single champion, who will stand alone atop the NHL mountain. Along the way, teams will choke, over achieve, and perhaps even astound. We don't really know the how's and why's, but one thing has become abundantly clear to those who have been paying attention: It's a new day in the NHL.

Sharks extend win streak to 8
SJ takes 4-3 shootout decision in Chitown
by Mike Lee
The Chicago Blackhawks have nothing to play for except pride. After being eliminated from playoff contention last week the Blackhawks are trying to close out their season. The Sharks got a taste of a prideful team that played beyond their situation, and fought tooth and nail with San Jose. Chicago tied the game in the last 2:22 of regulation and turned in one heck of an overtime period, but the Sharks grabbed their 8th consecutive win with a Kevin Labanc goal in the shootout en route to a 4-3 victory.

Couture's OT winner gains ground
Sharks chasing Knights for Pacific Division crown
by Mike Lee
If the Sharks were going to make a run for the Pacific Division title, they had to beat the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night. They did that, taking a thrilling 2-1 decision in overtime, but the fact that they needed extra hockey may have cost them in the end. The extra session resulted in two points in the standings for the Sharks, but by virtue of the Knights recording a point for their overtime loss, San Jose still trails Vegas by 7 points with 8 games to play.

Offense keeps rolling in win over NJ
Six Shark skaters score in 6-2 victory
by Mike Lee
The New Jersey Devils are scrambling to hold on to the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. With the Florida Panthers breathing down their necks just one point behind, the Devils should have been motivated to battle on Tuesday night as they visited SAP Center. Problem is, they ran into a Sharks team that has been firing on all cylinders as of late. San Jose continued to pound the opponent's net, as they outscored the Devils 6-2 to extend their winning streak to five games.

Post-Thornton, Post-Marleau Sharks look good, but good enough?
The team still looks like a runner-up when it comes to the Stanley Cup
by Paul Krill
For years, Sharks fans wondered what the world would be like once the Sharks no longer had Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton on the ice. With Marleau having left via free agency after last season and Thornton out with an injury since late-January, we've finally gotten a glimpse of that world. And it hasn't been so bad.

The Sharks forward scored a career high 4 goals to lead the Sharks to a 7-4 win over the host Calgary Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Friday night.

With 13 games remaining in the regular season, every game is a must win for the Sharks. With the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings breathing down their necks, the Sharks don't have any more room to miss. They gutted out a tough game in Edmonton on Wednesday night as San Jose kicked off a three-game road trip through Western Canada, taking a 4-3 overtime decision from the underachieving Oilers.

Rare power play goal sighted at SAP Center
Mikkel Boedker propels SJ on PP tally

Golden Knights could win it all - in their first season

Kane shines in his Sharks debut
San Jose rolls Oilers in 5-2 win
by Mike Lee
Evander made his Sharks debut on Tuesday night and made his presence felt up and down the ice and all over the score sheet, as the Sharks steam rolled the visiting Edmonton Oilers 5-2 at SAP Center. Kane assisted on the Sharks first two goals, and was a force, pestering Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot all night. He endeared himself to the 17,327 in attendance midway through the contest by scrapping with Oilers defenseman Matt Benning, and showing some teeth in the Sharks win.

Shoddy defense burns Sharks again
SJ gags up 3rd period lead, then losses in OT
by Mike Lee
The Sharks wrapped up their four-game road trip by doing what they did for most of the trip. Losing. San Jose tricked everyone by taking a lead, but inevitably morphed back into a mediocre hockey club that has no answers for any of the top teams in the Western Conference's Central Division teams. The Sharks blew a third period lead, then gagged up a loss in overtime on a defensive miscue involving Brent Burns. San Jose fell 3-2 to the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center.

Sharks fall flat in the Windy City
SJ drops second straight
by Mike Lee
Chicago Blackhawks backup goaltender J.F. Berube was making his first start for the Chicago Blackhawks, in his 23rd career NHL game on Friday night. A no-name goaltender in net automatically equates to Kryptonite for the Sharks and this one was no different, as the Sharks fell 3-1 to the Blackhawks at the United Center in Chicago. Berube made 42 saves against a lifeless Sharks offense that simply made it easy for the career backup netminder.

Predators outclass Sharks
SJ is the butt of toothless jokes in loss to Nashville
by Mike Lee
With the NHL trade deadline just 4 days away, the Sharks roster either played like they wanted to be traded or don't belong in the NHL to begin with after dropping an embarrassing 7-1 loss to the Nashville Predators in Tennessee on Wednesday night. The Sharks were awful from opening faceoff to the final buzzer, after they were torched by a superior roster that took them to task at Bridgestone Arena.

Dead Puck Mentality
Got the 90's on our Minds
by Ryan Hall
Another day, another series of comebacks. It's fair to say that leads have never been less safe in the NHL than they are today. Whether it's the New York Islanders scoring 4 goals on a PP in the last 5 minutes, only to choke up the lead themselves, before winning in overtime. Or else the Sharks both giving away leads (Las Vegas, Edmonton), and staging their own comebacks (Edmonton, Anaheim), locking down leads has suddenly become extremely difficult.

Mikkel Boedker led San Jose with a pair of goals, and Joe Pavelski chipped in a goal and two assists. Martin Jones kept the high-powered Stars at bay early to earn his 18th win of the season.

Late heroics propel Sharks after lethargic start
Timo Meier ties the game in last minute
by Mike Lee
Sometimes you deserve to win a game and the result falls short.

Ryan's big night leads to comeback win
Sharks overcome tough 2nd period to beat Edmonton
by Mike Lee
The Sharks defensive woes have been spotlighted the past few games and Saturday's match up with the Edmonton Oilers was not devoid of errors that led to goals, but the Sharks found a way to bookend those mistakes with bushels of goals in a 6-4 win at SAP Center. San Jose came out of the gate like gang busters, grabbing a 3-0 lead, only to watch that lead turn into a deficit. Rather than roll over, the Sharks countered with three goals in a wild 3rd period that help them knock off their division rivals from Alberta.

Defensive circus nothing to laugh at
Vegas takes 5-3 decision with three 3rd period goals
by Mike Lee
The Vegas Golden Knights have been the NHL's biggest surprise this season, and they showed everyone in San Jose why on Thursday night. The visitors from Southern Nevada scored three unanswered 3rd period goals to knock off the Sharks 5-3 at SAP Center. The game was a mini-recap of both the Sharks and Knight's seasons. Vegas played hard nosed hockey land scored late to win a game, while the Sharks floundered on defense to drop a game they could have won.

Sharks limp home after falling 3-1
SJ fails to take advantage of ailing Avalanche
by Mike Lee
The Sharks have embarked on three 5-game road trips this season. They concluded the second trip on Tuesday with a disappointing 3-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche at the Pepsi Center in Denver. After going 3-2-0 in the first trip, then followed that up with a 1-2-2 disaster as the new year kicked off. With the loss on Tuesday, San Jose capped their third trip 2-2-1, or 6-6-3 spanning all three trips. That's 15 points out of a possible 30, which seems apropos for a team that isn't bad enough to throw in the towel, but isn't really good enough to be taken seriously.

Sharks second straight win is super
San Jose leans on puck possession to knock off Hurricanes
by Mike Lee
San Jose built on their win in Columbus on Friday night, by dispatching the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1 at PNC Arena on Sunday morning in a pre-Super Bowl matinee. The Sharks grabbed a lead late in the 1st period and held the Hurricanes in check for the last 40 minutes. San Jose looked spry against the young and fast Carolina roster that has several up and coming offensive threats. The win put San Jose into a position to finish their current-5-game road trip with more wins than losses.

Sharks drop 4th straight
Doormat Red Wings take shootout win
by Mike Lee
The Sharks are starting to show some consistency. In their last four games, they've consistently played losing hockey. After their defense failed them in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night, San Jose limped into Detroit where they let the offense fail them against a poor Detroit Red Wings squad. The Red Wings broke a 4-game losing streak against a Sharks team that is struggling to do anything right.

Sharks continue to hemorrhage goals
Penguins put another 5-spot on defensively challenged SJ
by Mike Lee
After their 5-day respite for the All Star Break, the Sharks hit the ice fully rested in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night. The re-energized Sharks looked like a rested team, moving well at PPG Paints Arena, but a series of miscues cost them in what ended as a lopsided 5-2 loss to the Penguins. San Jose held a 2-1 lead late in the 2nd period, before allowing 4 unanswered goals to the defending Stanley Cup Champion Penguins.

Rangers exploit jumbo defensive hole
SJ surrenders 6 goals in ugly loss to New York
by Mike Lee
The Sharks started the Jumbo-less period of their schedule as Joe Thornton begins his rehabilitation following knee surgery earlier in the day. San Jose got a bit of a reprieve in the schedule by having the struggling New York Rangers to cut their teeth on the new roster situation. They responded by playing a sloppy defensive game that resulted in 6 Rangers goals and a 6-5 loss at SAP Center. If Thursday night's game is an indication of things to come, the Sharks can't get Thornton back soon enough.

Sharks play well enough to lose
Gutsy comeback overshadowed by little mistakes

Sharks feast on more poultry
Ducks follow same fate as Penguins
by Mike Lee
The back-to-back game gods are not typically sympathetic with the San Jose Sharks. San Jose told the gods to buzz off on Sunday night as they followed up their big 2-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night, by blitzing the Anaheim Ducks for 6 goals in a 6-1 roasting of their hosts in Southern California. San Jose created a little distance between themselves and their Pacific Division rival by chasing starting goaltender John Gibson with a bucket of goals.

Dell corrals Penguins in 2-1 win
Netminder makes 31 saves in big Sharks win

It wasn't a Stanley Cup Championship, but the Sharks will take a regular season win over the Pittsburgh Penguins any day of the week. In the only visit of the year by San Jose's Stanley Cup Finals tormentors, the Penguins fell to a Sharks team that stifled them defensively and used a 3rd period power play goal to knock off Pittsburgh 2-1 in an action packed affair at SAP Center.
