Sharks’ banged-up top line quiet in Game 6 loss

None of the Sharks’ lines got it done Sunday in Game 6 of the second-round series against Vegas. It wasn’t just the top line that failed to come through while facing elimination. The top line will be the one most closely analyzed in the coming days, however, after a 3-0 loss to the Golden Knights. Among the most pressing questions: Was Evander Kane fully healthy? What was Joonas Donskoi’s injury? How big a difference might Joe Thornton have made? “I’m not dissecting it,” head coach Peter DeBoer said, adding of Thornton’s fill-in, Joe Pavelski....

Pavelski: Not Your Average Joe

It was nearly 12 years ago when Joe Pavelski was called up from the AHL Worcester Sharks and inserted into the San Jose Sharks lineup as a 22-year-old. He scored in his first NHL game and never looked back at the minors. In that 2006-07 rookie season for Pavelski, he had 28 points in 46 […] The post Pavelski: Not Your Average Joe appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Sharks blank Golden Knights to even series at 2-2

The Sharks put it all together Wednesday night — timely goals, staunch defense and solid special teams — to beat the Vegas Golden Knights 4-0 at SAP Center.

Golden Knights fall 4-0 to the Sharks, series tied 2-2

It’s now a best of three with two home games remaining. Still, this was the Knights’ first genuinely bad playoff game, and that’s a bit concerning. So, uh, yeah. That wasn’t good. The Vegas Golden Knights lost 4-0 against the San Jose Sharks in Game 4 and, from top to bottom, looked subpar against the boys in teal. There were four different goal scorers for San Jose — Marcus Sorensen, Joonas Donskoi, Tomas Hertl and Joe Pavelski. Vegas had done fine against San Jose’s depth in Games 1-3, but they folded against it in Game 4. Starting in net for the Knights, Marc-Andre Fleury had...

Logan Couture wins Game 2 for Sharks with power-play goal in 2nd OT

LAS VEGAS — After Thursday night’s embarrassing 7-0 defeat to the Vegas Golden Knights, San Jose center and captain Joe Pavelski displayed the pride that comes with spending all 12 of his NHL seasons as a Shark. It can always go the other way in a hurry, Pavelski said with quiet confidence in a subdued visitors’ dressing room at T-Mobile Arena. “But that’s a challenge for us, to get it that way.” Before a Saturday night T-Mobile crowd of 18,671 and a national network-television audience, via NBC, the Sharks met a grand challenge and evened the...
