The Sharks have managed to win two of the last three games, which bring the Stanley Cup Final back to the Tank for Game 6.  Although the Sharks have been pretty well dominated in every game in the series, Martin Jones has been a revelation, and the Sharks are still in it.  With only two games left in the season, anything can happen.

The Sharks drop the first two games of the Stanley Cup Final against the Pens, and seem outmanned for much of both games.  Yet, they were in both, and game 2 went to OT.  What can the Sharks do to turn it around?

post Wait, a Game 6 Blog Post??

No chance to broadcast after that debacle last night, and I think people wouldn’t be so interested in hearing me beat my head into the wall on-air.  So I’ll keep it short.

The Sharks, for an unknown reason, just stopped playing after Nashville scored.  I can’t understand or explain it.  Look at the Sharks’s shot attempts- they had about 20 the rest of the way, and the Pred had over 60.  That’s domination I haven’t seen in a while.  This might not have been just the worst couple of periods the Sharks have played this playoffs- they might be the worst all year.

And if you look at the Corsi/Fenwick stats for the game, you see something extraordinary at the bottom of the chart:

Player Corsi Fenwick
Vlasic -17 -7
Pavelski -17 -15
Braun -17 -8
Hertl -18 -13
Thornton -19 -16
Jones -28 -16

When your best players are not only not your best players but your worst players, you lose.
