Timo Meier scores two goals as Sharks top Stars

Timo Meier continued his torrid streak with two goals as the Sharks beat the Dallas Stars 3-2 Thursday night at SAP Center. Meier scored his 17th and 18th goals of the season while goalie Martin Jones made 20 stops to spark San Jose to its fifth win in six games. Meier broke a 1-1 tie early in the third period by completing a 3-on-1 break. Defenseman Erik Karlsson started the sequence by swatting a puck out of midair out of the San Jose zone to spring the hosts on an odd-man break. Meier and Logan Couture played give-and-go before Meier lasered a shot past Dallas goalie Anton Khudobin at...

Who cussed out Erik Karlsson?

Who cussed out Erik Karlsson?

The San Jose Sharks were beating the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1 when Brenden Dillon cussed out Erik Karlsson. Well, that’s the story anyway. Here’s the tale of the tape: “Fuck off, Karl!” shouted somebody, who went on to add something unintelligible about his backhand. So who cussed out Karlsson? Was it the generally-genial Dillon? Do the Sharks hate Karlsson? Was it a random Hurricane? Would you believe it was Erik Karlsson cussing out Erik Karlsson? Dillon busted out when I asked him about it: “It was Erik. Ask him.” “That's me,” confirmed Karlsson. “I ‘motherfuck’...

Quick Bites: Sharks find some footing in Glendale

After a rough November, the Sharks’ mini-road trip shows positive signs. The first period last night felt like another sleepy affair. The Sharks’ goal in the first period, while at the end of a flurry of shots, came with the Sharks playing a rather unthreatening game otherwise. Erik Karlsson sent a pass across the zone that rebounded off the boards and managed to settle in time for Brenden Dillon to fling it toward the net. Joe Pavelski got his stick blade on it and the puck bounced the right way. Indeed, both of the Sharks’ first two goals were indicative of a few things: eventually,...

Stars And Sharks Look A Lot Alike So Far This Year - At Least In Points

Stars And Sharks Look A Lot Alike So Far This Year - At Least In Points

In some ways, this is like looking in the mirror. In others, they couldn’t be more apart. After winning the Erik Karlsson trade sweepstakes this offseason, the San Jose Sharks became the favorites to win the Stanley Cup. But as the Dallas Stars know, winning the offseason doesn’t necessarily equate to winning on the ice. It’s not that the Sharks are bad. They’re just not setting the NHL on fire the way many envisioned they would after an addition of Karlsson’s caliber. They sit third in the Pacific Division, but equal the Stars in points (33 through 29 games played, one more game...

Winning Play: Karlsson, Goodrow’s desperation

“The Sharks are flying,” exclaimed San Jose Sharks play-by-play announcer Randy Hahn, during the first period of San Jose’s 3-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens. How often have we heard that during the Sharks’ 0-3-1 road trip? Critically, San Jose wasn’t just flying offensively last night — they were literally flying defensively, too. Most importantly, every Shark — from top-pairing defenseman Erik Karlsson to fourth-liner Barclay Goodrow — flew. Let’s start with the superstar. Karlsson (65) expertly jumped the Jonathan Drouin (92) breakout. San Jose,...

Three Stars of the Week: Week 9

Solid week with great performances all around It was a busy, but exciting week for the Ottawa Senators, with four games played and 6 points gained. The highlight of the week was the return of Erik Karlsson with the San Jose Sharks, but the Sens managed to keep the attention on them with some superb performances. The week started with a frustrating loss to the New York Rangers, but the Sens recovered well with a 3-game winning streak that featured a first goal, a shutout, and a memorable video tribute. Without further ado, let’s get to our top performers and honourable mentions. Three...

Senators beat Sharks 6-2 in Karlsson’s return to Ottawa

On the occasion of Erik Karlsson’s return to Ottawa, it was a former Shark who stood out. Mikkel Boedker had a goal and three assists, Craig Anderson stopped 36 shots and the Senators beat their former captain and San Jose 6-2 on Saturday, sending the Sharks to their fourth straight loss. The Senators have three former Sharks on their roster with Boedker, Chris Tierney and Dylan DeMelo. “It was a lot of fun out there,” Boedker said. “We played really hard as a unit, I think. There was three of us in here playing against our old squad and everybody seems to rally behind that so it was...
