Two dudes blogging and podcasting about the San Jose Sharks, straight from sunny California.

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.

The Sharks do what they couldn’t do two years ago- close out the LA Kings. After losing game 3 in OT at home, the Sharks dusted themselves off and won tough in games 4 and 5.  The Dudes break it down, and talk about who the Sharks (and the rest of the NHL) might face next round.

The Sharks handily beat the Rangers in what was likely Dan Boyle’s last game in San Jose.  Of course he scored. And the Sharks continue to nip at the heels of both the Ducks and Kings, it will likely come down to the last game or two before playoff position is set.
