Sharks fall flat in Nashville
5/3/16 - By Mike Lee
You can't expect to win them all, but you do expect the team to show up. The Sharks have found lots of success during this post season, but Tuesday night wasn't indicative of that. The Sharks grabbed an early 1st period lead, then threw things into cruise control for the final 40 minutes. That was a recipe for disaster as the host Nashville Predators scored the next 4 goals to roll the Sharks 4-1 at Bridgestone Arena.

Jones leads Sharks to 2-0 series lead
5/1/16 - By Mike Lee
The Sharks had the advantage of playing a tired Nashville Predators team in Game 1 of their Western Conference Semi-Final match-up, but Game 2 was a much different story. Nashville came out firing on Sunday afternoon, outplaying the Sharks for the better part of 60 minutes, but San Jose's netminder Martin Jones had a career game in net to help the Sharks take a 3-2 win at SAP Center, vaulting the team to a 2-0 series lead.

Five 3rd period goals propel Sharks
4/29/16 - By Mike Lee
The Sharks last played a week ago when they ended the Los Angeles Kings season with a 6-3 win in Southern California, so it wasn't a surprise that they had a few cobwebs to deal with. San Jose spent the better part of 40 minutes in search of their legs, but when they found them it was a beautiful thing. San Jose erupted for a franchise record 5 goals in the 3rd period to knock off the Nashville Predators to take Game 1 of the Western Conference Semi-Final match-up.

Why the Sharks can beat the Nashville Predators in Round 2
4/28/16 - By Zach Bodenstein
Why the Sharks can beat the Nashville Predators in Round 2 After shocking the hockey universe and eliminating the Los Angeles Kings in dominant fashion, the Sharks are well-rested and poised to carry over their first round success against the Nashville Predators. The Predators are no slouch, as they took down arguably the western conference's toughest team, defeating the Anaheim Ducks in seven games, of which was a grueling and bruising series. The Predators come into this game on a two game winning streak, like the Sharks, and are forced to adjust to the time zone in Northern California, as well as the extended travel from Tennessee.

Quiet Night
4/26/16 - By Ken Smyth
No hockey tonight so one can think about things. The LA Kings are gone in five games, and between the Sharks and the St. Louis Blues, "exorcising their demons" easily wins the Over-used Metaphor In A Hockey Blog competition for the week. Sharks fans can live with that, we're tired of hearing that "c" word. About 90% of the smart people pecked either the Kings or the Chicago Blackhawks to represent the Western Conference in the Finals and have some serious splaining to do. Somebody new will go in a few weeks, it might as well be us. But that's getting ahead of things.

Sharks exact a little revenge
4/22/16 - By Mike Lee
The Sharks got a little redemption on Friday night. It wasn't full retribution for the great playoff collapse of 2014, but it was a nice little accomplishment that every player who wore teal two season ago had the pleasure of enjoying. San Jose out gunned the Los Angeles Kings in a wild 6-3 shootout at Staples Center, which allows the Sharks to advance to the Western Conference Semi-Finals. There was great irony in the game after the Sharks blew a 3-0 lead in the game before unloading two years of frustration on the Kings with a 3-goal 3rd period.

Power play powers Sharks to Game 4 win
4/20/16 - By Mike Lee
The Sharks Western Conference Series with the Los Angeles Kings was billed as one of the tightest of the playoffs. Each of the first four games has been diced by a single goal, including Wednesday nights 3-2 Sharks win at SAP Center. San Jose scored the first three goals of the game, then held on for a wild victory that gives them a commanding 3-1 series lead in the best-of-seven affair.

Missed opportunities gift the Kings Game 3
4/18/16 - By Mike Lee
The Sharks played like world beaters for 30 seconds on Monday night. Then they came back to earth and played mediocre hockey for the better part of an hour and allowed the Los Angeles Kings to crawl back in their Western Conference Quarter Final series after a series of missed opportunities. Tanner Pearson scored an overtime goal at SAP Center to help the Kings cut the Sharks series lead to 2-1.

Sharks grab 2-0 series lead
4/16/16 - By Mike Lee
The league's best road team did it again on Saturday night. With Game 1 already in the win column, the Sharks turned in another gritty performance at Staples Center in Los Angeles to take Game 2 with a 2-1 win over the host Kings. The Sharks took advantage of their chances, and held the Kings offense in check for most of the evening to grab a 2-0 lead in the best of 7 series.

Sharks take Game 1 from Kings 4-3
4/14/16 - By Mike Lee
To say the Sharks have some playoffs demons to exercise against the Los Angeles Kings would be a bit of an understatement. They kicked off the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs with a step in the right direction as they topped the Kings by a 4-3 score at Staples Center. One game does not a playoff series make, but the Sharks know they can compete and the road has been their comfort zone this season.

Game is On, Will the Sharks be
4/13/16 - By Ken Smyth
Team Teal is back to the playoffs. Notice the exclamation point is missing. Maybe the Warriors have taken up all the oxygen around the bay, maybe it's the Sharks' losing record at home, but outside of we hopeless puckheads the excitement isn't happening. Even among fans there is a feeling of resignation.

Why the Sharks Can Beat the Kings in Round 1
4/11/16 - By Zach Bodenstein
After the infamous "reverse-sweep" in 2014, the San Jose Sharks are a force to be reckoned with this season. To the average hockey fan, the Sharks don't stand a chance, and that is a fair assumption considering the Kings' recent playoff success. However, this is a different Sharks team, and a different Kings team, as well.
