Having already swept the Vancouver Canucks on their ice in the first two games of the opening round of the playoffs, the San Jose Sharks brought the battle back to San Jose Sunday evening. Having only lost at home twice in regulation all season, San Jose did not disappoint in a 5-2 thumping of Vancouver that gave the Sharks a commanding 3-0 series lead heading into their first shot at an elimination game Tuesday evening. Joe Pavelski got things started in the first period with his first of two goals on the evening. He added a goal in the second period to push the Sharks lead to 2-0. Pavelski scored his first goal on the power-play with a two-man advantage. Logan Couture and Joe Thornton assisted. Couture added a pair of power-play goals of his own in the third period and Patrick Marleau chipped in his third goal of the series, also in the third period, to take the final score to 5-2. Vancouver scored behind Alexandre Burrows wrist shot in the second period and Dan Hamhuis wrist shot...

San Jose Sharks head coach Todd McLellan and his team have a chance to sweep the Vancouver Canucks out of the playoffs Tuesday night in Game 4 of their first-round series. But before the Sharks dispatch the Canucks, McLellan is making sure he can fire some return shots in a developing war of words. The first shot was lobbed Monday afternoon when Vancouver defenseman Kevin Bieksa...

Cam Gore: Sharks embarrass Canucks to go up 3-0 in series

The San Jose Sharks showed no mercy against Vancouver Sunday night in game three of the Conference quarter finals putting up 5 goals to the Canuck’s 2. Somebody should have sent the Canucks the memo that this is the playoffs and the team that loses doesn’t advance to the next round. The Canucks didn’t play like a team that was down 2-0 in a best of seven series...

Henrik Sedin Butt-Ends Logan Couture After Faceoff in Sharks’ Game 3 Win (Animation)

The Vancouver Canucks are one game from being eliminated in the first round for the second consecutive year. Apparently, frustration is starting to set in. Vancouver captain Henrik Sedin, who has a reputation of being a squeaky-clean player, may have crossed a line in Game 3 on Sunday night against San Jose. The Canucks forward appeared to catch Sharks forward Logan Couture with...

Did Mike Milbury and Jeremy Roenick call out Sidney Crosby for taking a dive?

I might have to admit, that I agree with Mike Milbury and Jeremy Roenick on this one here. I thought it was a bad call. I also thought that Sidney Crosby went down really easy. The word embellishment was on the tip of my tongue as well, after I saw the play live. If I am not mistaken, they're kind of accusing Sidney Crosby of taking a bit of a dive there... Is that what others...

More Sharks respond to shirt-stirrer Kevin Bieksa’s remarks

Kevin Bieksa made himself look stupid on Monday when he called out Logan Couture and Joe Thornton for what he believed to be embellishing. The Canucks defenseman accused Couture and Thornton of having no integrity for hockey and therefore weren’t real Canadians. Couture said he doesn’t have to give a response to Bieksa because he let’s his play do the talking. Meantime, we...

Kevin Bieksa throws shade at the Sharks; Logan Couture responds appropriately

This series hasn’t been going too well for the Canucks. They’re down 3-0 in the series and could see their season end Tuesday night. They have had mostly unrealiable goaltending. And it’s all coming at the hands to the Sharks, their mortal enemies. So, needless to say, defenseman Kevin Bieksa is no doubt frustrated. That frustration boiled over on Monday after practice when...

Canucks Defenseman Kevin Bieksa Accuses Joe Thornton, Logan Couture of Embellishing

Sometimes in sports, a story comes along that seems just way too crazy to be true. This time around, the story comes courtesy of Vancouver Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa. While the Canucks have been accused of diving by many across the game in the last few seasons, it was Bieksa who came out and blasted two members of the San Jose Sharks, accusing them of diving in the two teams’...
