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.

The Sharks added James Reimer and Roman Polak at the deadline, with Raffi Torres, Alex Stalock, and Ben Smith exiting stage left.  What does this mean for the Sharks now, and how did the other playoff teams do?

The Sharks only win one at home, but they are still in second place in the division.  With some very winnable games coming, and the possible return of Logan Couture, the Sharks might see an uptick soon.

The Sharks looked great in the first week of the season, with all the new players contributing.  However, with a few injuries already taking their toll, will the Sharks keep rolling?  The Dudes again use Periscope to give the answer.

Sharks have six points in four games on the road trip, beating two very good teams in Montreal and Ottawa, and only losing the Boston in the heartbreaker.  Unfortunately we won’t be able to record until the weekend at earliest, but I have some questions and comments in easy-to-read bullet form.

  • Does anyone still think Burns has a tooth issue?  I’m surprised the ‘c’ word hasn’t been thrown about more.  He does have a concussion history, so this holdout does worry me.
  • Nothing like necessity to cure bad feelings.  With Burns, Boyle, Nieto, Torres, and Burish out, I think we could see Havlat tonight.
  • Mostly because Mike Brown is about exactly what I thought.  That mustache is sweet though.
  • I’m clearly getting overconfident, as I look at the next ten game stretch (LAK, PHO, BUF, VAN, WIN, CGY, VAN, EDM, CHI, TBY) and think the Sharks should win nine of them.  OK eight.
  • Stalock, while fun to watch, looks shakier than Niemi.  He needs to play more.  I would love to see him in three or four of the next ten.  What’s the harm in playing him against the Sabres, Jets, and Oilers?
  • I would pay big money to hear the voice mail Lapierre left for Boyle.  All I can hear is Doug’s psuedo-French accent in my head.

Go Sharks.
