Wild expose Sharks 3rd period woes
SJ blows 3-1 lead and lose in the shootout
by Mike Lee
The Sharks had the chance to close out the opening month of the season on a high note. Leading 3-1 in the 3rd period, familiar bad habits made an appearance and before they could blink, San Jose was losing to the host Minnesota Wild 4-3 in the shootout. Kyle Brodziak pounced on the Sharks soft 3rd period defense by scoring a pair of goals, then Mikko Koivu and Jason Pominville beat Antti Niemi in the shootout to win their 6th game of the season.

Sharks rewarded for strong effort
Colorado holds SJ until the shootout
by Mike Lee
Building on their strong performance in Anaheim on Sunday night, the Sharks kept up the pressure on the second leg of their road trip in Denver, but it took 65 minutes and a shootout to be rewarded for their effort. San Jose out played the Colorado Avalanche for the majority of the evening, but it took extra time and the skills competition to lock up two points in a 3-2 barn-burner.

Don't push the panic button…yet
Saturday's broad daylight nightmare at home is followed by Sunday's dominance in Orange County
by Paul Krill
After Saturday's multi-faceted flop - the Sharks laid an egg against the lowly Sabres and failed to sell out on a wonderful Saturday afternoon - panic buttons were readied. Internet discussions again asked why Todd McLellan and Doug Wilson were still employed by the Sharks. Musings on who the new coach would be ensued. And the empty seats showed that the Sharks are indeed going to have to finally pay a price for failing in the playoffs year after year after year; a "What's the use?" attitude looks to have set in, to some degree.

Ducks snap Sharks out of their funk
Teams combine for 165 penalty minutes in SJ's 4-1 win
by Mike Lee
After losing four straight games, the Sharks needed a swift kick in the pants to snap them out of their funk. What better than a division rival known for their unwieldy ways. That rival was the Anaheim Ducks, who obliged the Sharks with an invitation to the Fight Club, rather than a hockey game. San Jose used the engagement to play solid team hockey and bond a little as a team.

Sharks drop 4th straight to doormat
Buffalo the latest to open up in the 3rd period
by Mike Lee
If you happen to be driving down Santa Clara Street on Saturday afternoon, you may have caught a whiff of an awful stench emitting from SAP Center. That smell may have been the 17,370 paid attendees all vomiting in mass as the league's worst Buffalo Sabres were handing the Sharks their 4th loss in a row. Having won once in eight tries this season, the Sabres should have been easy pickings for the Sharks. What should have been and what transpired were two very different things. Buffalo scored a pair of 3rd period goals to beat San Jose 2-1 in what is clearly the most embarrassing loss of the season for the Sharks.

This story is getting old
Yet another 3rd period collapse
by Mike Lee
If you saw any of the Sharks last two games, then there was no need to take in Thursday night's contest at SAP Center. Same story, different opponent. Jump out to an early lead, cough up that lead in the third period, then lose. That's your story line in a nutshell. Same old late mistakes and a lack of defensive fortitude to hold on to a lead are all the Sharks have to offer right now. Bad 3rd period hockey allowed the Columbus Blue Jackets to take two points in a 5-4 decision against the hapless Sharks.

More 3rd period fail
Boston scores 3 unanswered 3rd period goals
by Mike Lee
After a quick start to open the season, bad habits are starting to cost the Sharks games. Yet another 3rd period collapse turned a lead into a loss as San Jose fell in regulation for the second consecutive game. San Jose gagged up a 3-2 lead by surrendering three goals to the Boston Bruins at TD Garden in the final 20 minutes, falling 5-3.

Madison Square ambush
Sharks flat in shutout loss to Rangers
by Mike Lee
An unusual thing has been happening to the Sharks this season. Usually shot crazy, San Jose has trailed in shot counts for a majority of their games this season. But they've been winning. They went and messed that all up on Sunday in New York by outshooting the host Rangers 33-29 at Madison Square Garden. For their effort, they were rewarded with a 4-0 spanking at the hands of Henrik Lundqvist and the rest of the Rangers.

Sharks hang on in Jersey
San Jose allows late surge by Devils but wins 4-2
by Mike Lee
The Sharks were not very accommodating guests on Saturday night. With the New Jersey Devils hosting their home opener at the Prudential Center in Newark, the Sharks were supposed to all the home crowd to celebrate the start of the 2014-15 NHL season with a Devils victory. San Jose apparently didn't get the script. At least not until the 3rd period, when another defensive lapse almost allowed the Devils to claw their way back from a 3-0 deficit.

Last visit to Nassau nauseating
Sharks lose in the shootout after blowing 3rd period lead
by Mike Lee
You can't win them all, but the fact that the Sharks are giving up goals in the 3rd period is not something they should be comfortable with. San Jose allowed their opponent to score a pair of 3rd period goals for the second straight game, and were forced to take matters to the shootout as they did in Washington D.C. on Tuesday night. The New York Islanders were one shootout goal better than the Sharks on Thursday night, taking a 4-3 win.

Sharks cap wild shootout win
Irwin scores a pair of goals to extend Sharks winning streak
by Mike Lee
The Sharks kicked off a five-game road trip on Tuesday night with a wild and crazy game in Washington D.C. that had more ups and downs than Bill Clinton's pants. Like a campaign cycle, the Sharks jumped out to a big lead, saw their challenger tighten up the race, before finally winning in a shootout. The host Capitals stormed back from an early 3-0 deficit to force overtime after a spirited 3rd period, only to fall 6-5 in the skills competition.

by Ryan Hall

After months of nothing happening, the ice is clean, jerseys are laundered, rosters are set, and 30 teams are ready to set out on their quest for hockey supremacy. This is the 2nd best time of the year (after the playoffs) because right now everyone feels happy; everyone thinks they have a chance.

Sharks open season with win in LA
6 months too late
by Mike Lee
The San Jose Sharks had a little motivation to kick off the 2014-15 NHL season. After getting kicked in the teeth by the Los Angeles Kings last spring, the NHL spit on the Sharks by scheduling their regular season opener in Southern California to partake in the Kings Championship banner raising ceremony. If that didn't spark a reaction from the Sharks, nothing would. San Jose responded with a solid 4-0 win on opening night at Staples Center.

It is what it is
Devastating end to last season casts a pall over this season
by Paul Krill
I don't know about you, but I'm finding it hard to get excited about this new Sharks season, which starts this Wednesday. Of course, this is all about the disastrous ending to last season, when the Sharks choked on a 3-0 series lead and lost to the Kings in the first round, becoming one of the only teams to ever lose a series after being ahead three games to none.

I just don't believe anymore
Why I shouldn't write when I'm half frozen
by Ryan Hall
I'm sitting here in my front room, staring out my back yard window watching the leaves blow off the trees. It's a particularly grey day, with the temperature below zero this morning when I got out of bed to walk our dog. Despite every fibre of my being wanting to stay inside where it was warm, there I was shivering as we walked to the park to play a quick game of fetch before breakfast. During one particularly brisk lull, as my dog was hunting for his ball in amongst the leaves, the wind picked up, the leaves rained down and I couldn't help but think that soon the snow would fall.

Over it?
Still a tough pill to swallow
by Ken Smyth
Over it? I'm not. This is the third time in six years that the Sharks' lost four straight in a playoff series. Going into the 2014-15 season, the San Jose Sharks find not only their team logo carved on Mt. Chokemore, but their 75% off game-worn jerseys on sale in the gift shop and a photo booth with a cardboard Joe Thornton. For a nominal price your head can be 'shopped into a photo of the Sharks shaking hands with the LA Kings after losing the first round series. Yes, I'm still a bit disturbed.

What to Expect out of San Jose This Season?
Bottom end changes may define SJ's fate
by Zack Bodenstein
Following a 3-0 series collapse against the Kings, the Sharks are trying to look past it. Meanwhile, General Manager Doug Wilson, is not. Wilson immediately referred to his team as a "tomorrow team" hinting at the possible anticipated rebuild for the Sharks. However, the players don't think of it this way.
