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....

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

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...

Quick Bites: Fleury steals another win for Vegas

Quick Bites: Fleury steals another win for Vegas

The Sharks now trail the series 2-1. Fueled by handing the Golden Knights their first-ever franchise loss, the Sharks hoped that they could take charge of a split series tonight. From the start, they looked like a team that was ready and able to win, even without the services of Joonas Donskoi, who sat out thanks to a lower body injury. Despite a strong start from the Sharks, just five minutes into the game, Mikkel Boedker made a mess of a play, tossing the puck back to the blueline, where there was no one in teal awaiting it. The resulting turnover wound up on the stick of Erik Haula, who...
