Fast times in Vegas as energetic teams meet

Beyond the glitz of the Vegas Strip, and an expansion team that beat long odds to reach the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, what we have are two teams that are very similar. The Sharks and Golden Knights play fast, boast hot goalies and are fresh off first-round sweeps at the start of a best-of-seven series that will send the survivor to the Western Conference finals. What happens in Vegas will not stay in Vegas. So push back from the buffet, store the Elvis get-up and go all in on what should be a very competitive affair.

Sharks realize Vegas is not a typical expansion team

Peter DeBoer worked with George McPhee at the World Championships in the summer of 2015, before DeBoer was hired to be the Sharks’ head coach. It was a brief encounter, but it gave DeBoer an inkling that this Vegas thing might work when the expansion team hired McPhee as its first general manager. “This is a very intelligent guy,” said DeBoer, whose Sharks will play the Golden Knights in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. “Their assistant GM (Kelly McCrimmon), I worked with him, too, at Hockey Canada. They did a lot of planning, research...

Sharks vs Golden Knights Series Preview: San Jose Offense vs Vegas Defense

Sharks will have to catch Gallant with the wrong units on the ice. As Timo Meier scooped up a rebound and inserted it between Ryan Miller’s pads and into the back of the net to bring the score to 8-1 for San Jose last Monday, Sharks fans squealed in joy at the offensive outburst. Not only were noted leaders Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf leading their team in the rush for penalty box time, but the San Jose power play was making them pay for their infractions. The next game — the series clincher — was more of a sphincter clincher than the Sharks had experienced all series and a reminder...

Whether they’re fueled by spite or William Karlsson’s shooting percentage or hidden gems of talent buried in other team’s fourth lines, they’re the winningest expansion team in NHL history. As Pete DeBoer said, the Sharks are going to be the underdogs in this round two matchup. Here are five players the Sharks will be looking out for at T-Mobile Arena: Marc-Andre Fleury First round series grade: A+ Exceeded or met expectations?: Exceeded Is there...

Cuda Corner: Balcers takes control as the ‘Cuda tie the series

Reports of Roy’s boys quitting have been heavily exaggerated. I’m not trying to jinx it here, but don’t call it a comeback. On a delightfully warm Saturday night at the SAP Center, the San Jose Barracuda were set to play the Tucson Roadrunners in a game that the boys in teal absolutely had to win in order to regain momentum going in to a potential three-game road trip down to Tucson. The same goalies were set to go from Thursday: Adin Hill for the Roadrunners, Antoine Bibeau for the Barracuda. Ivan Chekhovich celebrated his new contract with the Sharks organization by combining...
