Quick Bites: Near-perfect game downs Devils

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ Back-to-back wins to begin the road trip and a near-perfect game from the Sharks will help to build confidence. Facing the New Jersey Devils with a recuperated (and recently re-signed) Jack Hughes, San Jose Sharks head coach Bob Boughner shook up his forward lines. Andrew Cogliano left the road trip early after Sunday’s shutout victory over the Chicago Blackhawks to attend to family matters (I wish him all the best, with whatever that may be). Lane Pederson was activated off injured reserve on Monday, leaving Boughner options to get creative...

Photo by Matt Cohen/Icon Sportswire via The AHL should not be a dumping ground for unwanted NHL players. When the final horn blew at the United Center on Sunday night, it primarily signified a 2-0 victory for the San Jose Sharks, but it also signified something else; Evander Kane’s 21-game suspension for violating the NHL and NHLPA’s COVID Protocols had officially expired.
