WCF Game 6: Sharks flame out
5/21/19 - By Mike Lee
Skating without three of the biggest guns on their roster, the Sharks packed up the 2018-19 NHL season with a disappointing 5-1 loss to the St Louis Blues in the Western Conference Finals. Leading 3-2 entering the game, St Louis matched their 5-goal output in Game 5 to finish off the Sharks. It was about as disappointing a performance as they come. The Blues led from wire to wire, and were never challenged by the bruised and battered Sharks.

WCF Game 5: Sharks pushed to the brink
5/19/19 - By Mike Lee
The Sharks returned home with a chance to regain the lead in their Western Conference Finals series with the St Louis Blues, and flat our whiffed. Early mistakes and mounting injuries allowed the Blues to smack the Sharks with a 5-0 shutout in the Sharks barn. By virtue of the loss, the Sharks now sit one loss from elimination and a flurry of injuries in the game make their long term outlook questionable.

WCF Game 4: No urgency for San Jose
5/17/19 - By Mike Lee
After getting shutout in Game 4 of their quarter finals match-up with the Vegas Knights and their semi-finals match-up with the Colorado Avalanche, you can claim a small victory for the San Jose Sharks on Friday night. They didn't get shutout by the St Louis Blues, but they did fall 2-1, which begs raises a different concern. That being that the Sharks have a difficult time getting prepared for games which afford them the ability to step on their opponents throat.

WCF Game3: Sharks win wild one in OT
5/15/19 - By Mike Lee
There are hockey games, and there are hockey games that you'll remember for a long time. The Sharks Western Conference Finals series with the St Louis Blues shifted to Missouri on Wednesday, and it turned out to be a memorable one. San Jose jumped out to a big lead, imploded in the 2nd period to give up four goals, then tied the game in the final minute of regulation. All of that was ancillary to the ending in overtime, which was capped by a controversial non-call on an apparent hand pass before Erik Karlsson banged home the game-winning goal. In the end, San Jose skated away with a 5-4 victory.

WCF Game 2: Sharks fizzle in 4-2 loss
5/13/19 - By Mike Lee
For whatever reason, the Sharks don't care too much for Game 2's. Playing in their third Game 2 of the playoffs, San Jose misfired for a third consecutive time on Monday night, dropping a 4-2 decision to the St Louis Blues in their Western Conference Finals match up at SAP Center. The Sharks played an uninspired game, devoid of much action to get the sellout crowd involved. If not for a pair of strikes from Logan Couture, the Sharks were muted by the Blues in their own barn. The loss evens their best of seven series at one game a piece.

WCF Game 1: Meier and Couture lead to win
5/11/19 - By Mike Lee
The Western Conference Finals kicked off on Saturday night, and for at least one night, the Sharks looked unbeatable. San Jose powered up offensively, putting 5 goals past rookie netminder Jordan Binnington, before adding an empty net tally to steamroll the St Loius Blues 6-3 at SAP Center. Timo Meier and Logan Couture scored a pair of goals each to propel San Jose, who also received a 28 save performance from Martin Jones to take the 1-0 series lead.

WCSF Game 7: Pavelski returns to lead SJ
5/8/19- By Mike Lee
When Joe Pavelski was laying on the ice in Game 7 of the Sharks Western Conference Quarter Final series with the Vegas Golden Knights, things looked bleak for the San Jose Sharks. Their captain was unconscious and they were trailing by 3 goals in the 3rd period. 15 days later, Pavelski made his return to a sheet of NHL ice and it couldn't have been more dramatic. Pavelski scored a goal and added an assist to lead the Sharks to a thrilling Game 7 victory over the Colorado Avalanche to punch San Jose's ticket to the Western Conference Finals and a date with the St Louis Blues.

WCSF Game 6: Landeskog forces a Game 7
5/6/19- By Mike Lee
The Sharks may regret their performance in Game 6 of their Western Conference Semi Final series with the Colorado Avalanche. Should the Avalanche come back to win Game 7 on Wednesday, the Sharks will look back to all the missed chances in Game 6. After overcoming three separate deficits in the game, San Jose let their guard down in overtime and let Gabriel Landeskog take the game with a goal 2:32 into the extra period to take a 4-3 decision.

WCSF Game 5: Hertl leads Sharks to crucial win
5/4/19- By Mike Lee
The Western Conference Semi Finals series between the Colorado Avalanche and San Jose Sharks shifted back to California on Saturday night in a pivotal Game 5. As was expected, the two teams played a knock down, drag out contest that ended with the Sharks holding a 2-1 advantage. Tomas Hertl scored a pair of goals to provide San Jose with all the offense they would need to give the Sharks a 302 series lead. Martin Jones stopped 21 shots to earn his 7th win of the playoffs.

WCSF Game 4: Complacency costs SJ
5/2/19- By Mike Lee
With a chance to put a stranglehold on their Western Conference Semi Final series with the Colorado Avalanche in Game 4 on Thursday night, the Sharks laid a proverbial egg. A lackluster effort, no organization on the offense and a pair of defensive miscues resulted in a 3-0 shutout loss to the host Avalanche. One of the few bright spots was goaltender Martin Jones performance. The Sharks goaltender kept the game within reach for the Sharks, but his teammates didn't make the effort required to win playoff hockey.

WCSF Game 3: Couture big night leads SJ
4/30/19- By Mike Lee
The Sharks Western Conference Semi Final series shifted to Denver on Tuesday night, and as has been the case in the first two games, the score was a tightly contested game. San Jose allowed the host Colorado Avalanche to overcome a 2-goal deficit, but Logan Couture stepped up as a team leader and recorded his first career playoff hat trick to lead San Jose to a 4-2 victory. Martin Jones made 25 saves and has suddenly turned his season around, which couldn't come at a better time for the Sharks.

WCSF Game 2: Avalanche bite back
4/28/19- By Mike Lee
Playing to the whistle is something every coach stresses, at every level. Marc-Edouard Vlasic didn't do that in Game 2 of the Sharks Western Conference Semi Finals series with the Colorado Avalanche, and it cost the Sharks. A non-call on an apparent icing that wasn't turned out to be a turning point in the Sharks 4-3 loss to the Avalanche. Colorado knotted the series at 1-1 with the victory, and claimed the home ice advantage in the series.

WCSF Game 1: No hangover for SJ
4/26/19- By Mike Lee
The emotion was still fresh from the Sharks dramatic Game 7 victory over Vegas 72 hours earlier, but the Sharks had to get right back at it on Friday night as they kicked off their Western Conference Semi Final series with the Colorado Avalanche. San Jose overcame a 2-1 deficit with a 2nd period outburst that pushed toward an eventual 5-2 victory. Brent Burns led San Jose with a goal and 3 assists, and Martin Jones made 26 saves to stake the Sharks to the 1-0 series lead.

One for the Ages
4/24/19- By Paul Krill
Since 1982, I've felt that the greatest game I'd ever seen in any sport was the Miami Dolphins-San Diego Chargers NFL playoff game played early that year, where the Dolphins trailed 24-0 after the first quarter, brought the score to 24-17 at halftime on a trick play, and then lost in OT. Well, Tuesday night's Sharks game gives that Dolphins game a run for its money, at least in my book. And I was in actual attendance for the Sharks game, unlike that Dolphins game, which became known as the "Epic in Miami."

WCQF Game 7: Hockey Miracle
4/23/19- By Mike Lee
There are hockey games, and there are epic hockey games. The Sharks and Vegas Golden Knights played in the latter variety on Tuesday night at SAP Center, in what may regarded as the greatest comeback in San Jose playoff history. Trailing 3-0 in the 3rd period of Game 7 of the Western Conference Quarter Finals match up, San Jose did the improbable after captain Joe Pavelski was knocked out of the game with a cross check to the head. The Sharks scored four goals during a 5-minute major penalty to grab the lead, then converted in overtime to take the series.

WCQF Game 6: Jones saves the day
4/21/19- By Mike Lee
Martin Jones has been the target of significant criticism this season. After dropping Games 2, 3 & 4 in the Sharks Western Conference, the Sharks goaltender was the biggest reason the Sharks had been pushed to the brink of playoff elimination. San Jose got an Easter miracle on Sunday night in Game 6, as Jones set a franchise record with 58 saves as the Sharks knocked off the Vegas Golden Knights 2-1 in double overtime.

WCQF Game 5: Sharks win to see another day
4/18/19- By Mike Lee
The Sharks margin of error is now zero if they want to keep their season alive. Having already dropped three games to the Vegas Golden Knights in their Western Conference Quarter Finals match-up, San Jose can not afford any more let downs this season. Thursday night's Game 5 contest at SAP Center felt more like Game 1, when San Jose dictated play and skated with a resounding win. San Jose jumped on the Knights early, and managed their lead en route to a 5-2 win before a sellout crowd.

WCQF Game 4: No answers
4/16/19- By Mike Lee
Trailing the Vegas Golden Knights by a game entering Game 4 of their Western Conference Quarter Final match-up, the Sharks had a chance to draw even in the series. Instead, they rolled over and laid down at the feet of their opponent. The game was over in the 1st period after the Knights scored a pair of goals. San Jose had no answer in any of the three periods, but it was the surrender in the 3rd period that will go down as the point that stands out in one of the ugliest losses in franchise playoff history.

WCQF Game 3: Sharks late to the party
4/14/19- By Mike Lee
The Sharks Western Conference Quarter Finals series with the Vegas Golden Knights shifted to Southern Nevada on Sunday night, but things looked a lot like the last game in San Jose. The Knights took advantage of the Sharks inability to defend their own net in the first minute of a period, scoring goals to start each period in seconds, en route to a 6-3 pasting of San Jose. Mark Stone recorded a hat trick and Marc-Andre Fleury made 25 saves to lead Vegas.

WCQF Game2: Controversy mars Game 2 loss
4/12/19- By Mike Lee
Game 2 of the Sharks Western Conference Quarter Finals series with the Vegas Golden Knights will go in the books as the game that was lost on a controversial call and a bushel of missed special teams opportunities. San Jose dropped Game 2 by a 5-3 score after referee Kelly Sutherland took a would be go-ahead goal off the board after the Sharks stormed back from a 3-goal deficit in the opening period.

WCQF Game1: Sharks open series with win
4/10/19- By Mike Lee
If the rest of the Sharks Western Conference Quarter Finals Series with the Vegas Golden Knights is like Game 1, we're in for a humdinger of a match up. Wednesday night's series opener had a little bit of everything that you'd expect in a playoff hockey game. When the smoke cleared, the Sharks had themselves a well earned 5-2 victory to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Five different Sharks recorded goals, including defensemen Brent Burns and Marc-Edouard Vlasic.
