Quick Bites: Healthy Sharks inch past Canucks

The Sharks take the season series from Vancouver in a tight-scoring game. The Sharks once again defeated the Vancouver Canucks this season, albeit in a much tighter game than they were expecting. Things trended the way of the Canucks from the opening faceoff, and it didn’t seem to stop until halfway through the first period. Of course, their early momentum was halted when Derrick Pouliot took a delay of game penalty early into the game. Playing deep within the zone with under 30 seconds left on the power play, Erik Karlsson caught a pass from Evander Kane in the trapezoid and snapped...

The Sharks are looking for a rebound win against the Canucks. Valentine’s Day didn’t go as planned for the San Jose Sharks, who fell 5-1 to the Washington Capitals. They’ve got a chance to rebound tonight against the same Vancouver Canucks team that they dismantled 7-2 on Monday night.

In his absence, the Sharks have gone 6-3-0, but with the Pacific Division turning into a two-horse race between the Sharks and Calgary Flames,...

The Sharks are in a better place than last time they saw the Caps. The San Jose Sharks (34-16-7, 1st Pacific) host the Washington Capitals (31-19-7, 2nd Metropolitan) tonight at SAP Center on the hunt for their seventh win in a row. These two teams last met three weeks ago, capping off a less-than-stellar road trip for the Sharks with a 7-6 overtime victory heading into the All-Star Break. The game featured hat tricks from both Alex Ovechkin and Tomas Hertl.

Quick Bites: DiPietro left out to dry against surging Sharks offense

The Sharks turned Michael DiPietro’s dream debut into a nightmare. Playing a teenager in net is a unicorn moment in the National Hockey League. The Vancouver Canucks had few other options when they started 19-year-old Michael DiPietro against the San Jose Sharks last night. With injuries to Thatcher Demko and Jacob Markstrom, the Canucks called up DiPietro on an emergency basis from the Ottawa 67’s of the Ontario Hockey League to make his NHL debut. Throwing a teenager to face one of the most potent offenses in the league, even without Erik Karlsson in the lineup, was a difficult spot...
