Wakey, Wakey

Hello, Sharks. The playoff sandman is back, your old friend from days gone by. He's talking about golf and fishing; spending time at the beach. Take a break from getting your head elbowed by Jarrett Stoll and kick back with cold ones for a few months. No worries about Getzlaf or Perry for months. Just play easy for a few days and it all comes true.

No Fear
By - Ryan Hall
I'm probably dating myself a bit, but does anyone out there in reader land remember the late 1990's? If you were older than 10 years old, there's a good chance you might recall a brand of T-shirts that ran with the tag line: No Fear. Usually, they featured over dramatized saying like "Bottom of the Ninth, Bases Loaded, 2 Out… No Fear!! Cheesy I know, but man were they popular.

Offense AWOL in Game 5
By - Mike Lee
The Sharks playoff series with the Los Angeles Kings got real on Saturday night. With their second chance to end the series, San Jose misfired, crawling into a hole and covering up. Rather than taking control of things on home ice, the Sharks laid down and forced a Game 6 in Los Angeles on Monday night after dropping a 3-0 decision to the Kings. Saturday night's game amounted to what everyone thought this series would be like, with the Kings playing a more physical style and the Sharks leaning on their money players. Only problem is, those money players failed to show any signs of life.

Marleau gives Sharks 3-0 series lead
By - Mike Lee
The Sharks haven't had much luck winning in Los Angeles the past two years. San Jose has lost a combined 8 games on Staples Center ice dating back to last season, so it was easy to expect them to lose Game 3 of the Sharks Western Conference Quarter Finals matchup with the Kings. The Kings also had every intention of continuing that streak by jumping out to a pair of leads, only to be rebuffed by a Sharks team that has put itself one win away from the Conference Semi-Finals, after beating the Kings 4-3 in overtime.

Don't get too excited - at least not yet
By - Paul Krill
So far, so good. Through two playoff games, the Sharks have dominated their opponent, the Los Angeles Kings, with just a couple of glitches. These include falling behind 2-0 in Game 2 and giving up three goals in the first 14 minutes of the third period of Game 1. But the Sharks have poured in 13 goals against a Kings team known for stingy defense and great goaltending.

Sharks pound Kings for 2-0 series lead
By - Mike Lee
The San Jose Sharks have been guilty of laying down their guard after big performances this season, so all eyes were on San Jose to what they would do on Sunday after walloping the Los Angeles Kings in Game 1 of their Western Conference Quarter Finals match-up. San Jose responded by literally one-upping their 6 goal outburst in Game 1, by putting 7 pucks past Jonathan Quick in a second consecutive white-washing of the Kings. 7 different Sharks scored en route to a 7-2 victory and a 2-0 lead in the best-of-7 series.

Three Sharks Teams in the Same Game
By - Paul Krill
For a while, Game 1 was everything a Sharks fan could dream of. The Sharks were pummeling the Kings, who looked more like a minor league team out there. Did anybody think the Sharks would run up a 5-0 lead, including two goals very late in the first period? Everybody was getting into the act: Raffi Torres, Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton, Marc-Eduoard Vlasic and, with his first career playoff goal, Tomas Hertl. Through the first two periods, the Sharks looked invincible. Kings star goalie Jonathan Quick was chased.

Sharks make a statement
By - Mike Lee
The Sharks opened the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs with a big start on Thursday night at SAP Center. They then took their foot off the gas and finished the game by allowing the Los Angeles Kings to score three 3rd period goals. Not the perfect performance, but in the end San Jose's 6 tallies were enough to power the Sharks to a Game 1 victory. If the game was any indication, the series is going to be a humdinger.

Will Legends be Made?
By - Ryan Hall
Well, the playoffs are here, and to steal an old NHL marketing slogan "Legends will be Made". But will they really? Sure, some players will have a great post-season, and a small percentage of them will actually get to see their names engraved on the Stanley Cup. That's what everyone plays for, and there is definitely some measure of 'Legend' building that happens as a result. But can you honestly remember who played 4th line Left Wing for the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004? Or the name of the back-up goalie for Colorado in 1996?

New Sheriff in Town
By - Paul Krill
While everybody enjoyed Martin Havlat's natural hat track this past Friday vs. the Avalanche, I thought the real first star of the game was the guy in the net - Alex Stalock. Besides only letting in one no-chance-to-stop-that goal in the second period, Stalock kept the Sharks in the lead when P.J. Parenteau exited the penalty box and waltzed in all alone on Stalock, who shut him down. We also saw Stalock's adventurous skating and stick-handling that evening - it definitely was not Antti Niemi out there.
