The Sharks again embarrassed an opponent last night, just crushing the Kings 6-1. As you can see in our twitter feed to the right (woo hoo! new features!) the Sharks should have been a giant favorite, mostly because the Kings were missing their top two scorers. The Sharks had five players on the ice with more points than their top scorer last night, Dustin Brown.
And yet, there’s room for improvement. Check out this great post by Justin Bourne writing on the Puck Daddy blog. For whatever reason, he uses film clips almost exclusively from last night’s game to show what not to do, and our own Joe Thornton was the object of one lesson. I’m sure the coaches saw these, and I’d like to think corrections will be made. Even in my beer league leaving guys all alone in the slot is reason for derision.
We’ll be recording and posting the podcast tomorrow night after the Ducks game.
