Quick Bites: Binnington, Blues beat Sharks in Game 4

Quick Bites: Binnington, Blues beat Sharks in Game 4

The series now tied at two games apiece. The San Jose Sharks lost last night, but the real worry for Sharks fans should be the condition of Erik Karlsson. Karlsson was laboring at the end of the game and it looked like his groin wasn’t right. He wasn’t on the ice for a seven-minute stretch in the third period, despite the fact that the Sharks were trailing. It’s possible that all he needs is rest, but it’s also possible that we could see Tim Heed in Game 5, which is a scary proposition with the series tied. As usual, Sharks Captain Joe Pavelski summed it up best: “We battled, we...

What’s wrong with Sharks’ power play?

What’s wrong with Sharks’ power play?

What’s wrong with the San Jose Sharks’ power play? It’s hard to imagine such a star-studded power play struggling, but here we are: Since the Vegas series, San Jose has the worst power play in the league. They’ve scored just one goal at 5-on-4 in the last 10 games. The better question: What’s not wrong with their power play? Even when they’ve gained the zone, they’re not creating second chances. Joe Pavelski said after Game 2: “It was just one and done. Those little things that help you sustain an attack in zone, we weren’t good enough.” Since topping the Golden Knights,...

Winning Play: “It starts with the center.”

Winning Play: “It starts with the center.”

It’s easy to forget when you eviscerate a team 6-3, but the San Jose Sharks actually had their hands full against the St. Louis Blues to start Game 1. Craig Berube agreed: “I thought our first few shifts were good. Got in on the forecheck, got a couple opportunities.” This was the opening shift: San Jose wanted to exit the zone up the wall: Tomas Hertl (48), from the corner, filtered it up to Joe Pavelski (8). However, Joel Edmundson (6) rebuffed Pavelski. Oskar Sundqvist (70) followed up with a behind-the-back, between-the-legs pass to Alexander Steen (20). Martin...

Hochman: Pavelski-led Sharks are an intimidating bunch. Will that be motivation for Blues?

Fewer things in sports are less-intimidating than the teal-clad uniforms of the San Jose Sharks, or the cheesy, in-arena prop shark with cartoonish fangs. That being said … fewer things in sports are more-intimidating than the actual San Jose Sharks.
