Photo by Brandon Magnus/NHLI via Through the San Jose Sharks’ early struggles, Peter DeBoer has maintained belief in his special teams. “I know it didn’t look good early, but I thought our special teams, I’m comfortable by the end of the year, they’ll be good,” DeBoer said. “For me, we’ve got to continue to work on establishing a four-line game. That’s what wins. That’s what wins in the playoffs. That’s what wins against good teams. We’re not there yet.” San Jose’s penalty kill might be the beleaguered squad’s lone constant this year, allowing just two...

Nashville Predators 5, San Jose Sharks 2: Predators’ Momentum Leads to Sharks’ Fourth Straight Loss

Photo by John Russell/NHLI via The Sharks couldn’t find another gear and the Preds capitalized on it. If you picked the San Jose Sharks to win it all this season you’ve probably been cringing at their start. While it’s still too early to count them out, they’ve not been performing like a team that’s home to the likes of Brent Burns, Erik Karlsson, and Logan Couture. They’ve been bad, and losing Evander Kane to suspension in pre-season didn’t set them on the right course. Needless to say the Nashville Predators needed to be on their game for whatever the Sharks were ready...

Golden Knights at Sharks: Lines, gamethread, and where to watch

Photo by David Becker/NHLI via Activate Erik Karlsson Dad Power Protocol As we all know by now, the NHL, to its detriment, has an obsession with fairness and parity that often comes at the cost of fun. The league’s overtime loser point prevents many in season comebacks (the 2018-19 St. Louis Blues notwithstanding), officials’ make up call penchant prevents dominant power plays from truly punishing undisciplined teams far too often, and the failure-first entry draft forces generational talents like Connor McDavid to slave away in the roster wasteland in the middle of an actual,...

Quick Bites: Sharks nipped by Knights in nightmare on The Strip

Lots of this went on. | Photo by: Marc Sanchez/Icon Sportswire via First test for the kids doesn’t go so well. It’s unwise to make many judgments of a team after the first game of the season. It’s especially silly to concern yourself too much with the outcome of a game in which the team was missing one of its better forwards and arguably its most important player. But, that’s where we find ourselves nonetheless, after a 4-1 loss in Las Vegas without Evander Kane (suspension) and without Erik Karlsson (last-minute personal matter). On their way to a 0-1 start, the San Jose...
