The Worcester Sharks had a lukewarm weekend. Perhaps it was closer to tepid. They lost two of three games in three days. Friday they played at Providence, scoring first but losing 3-1. That first goal was a short handed tally by Marek Viendensky, at 19:15 of the second period. It held up until the mid-point of the third period when the Bruins tied the game. The Bruins scored two more in the last three minutes of the third, including an empty netter. The final SOG count was 23-19 Bruins, Alex Stalock made 20 saves.
3/1/13 scores & saves:
Worcester: Marek Viedensky(2)(SHG). Alex Stalock made 20 saves for the Sharks. The Sharks power play went 0/4, their penalty kill 5/6.
Providence: Kyle MacKinnon(10)(PPG, Tardif, Cunningham), Alden Hirschfeld(3), Trent Whitfield(5)(ENG, Hanson, Exelby) Continue reading "AHL/ECHL Monday Mentions, March 4"

Did the Sharks lack confidence through February? Well, obviously, but in what? What has been dragging them down? Have they dealt with "it" yet?
I had a thought yesterday morning, stemming from something one of the Bulls said to me weeks ago. He mentioned that the offensive game comes first for most players. They learn defense later with experience. It wasn...

Brad Stuart added two assists and Antti Niemi made 36 saves for San Jose, which won its second straight game after a stretch in which it went 2-6-4.

The San Jose Sharks left Vancouver with two points and they did it by leaving nothing behind in a 3-2 shootout win. Scott Gomez and Adam Burish both scored their first goals as Sharks as the depth scoring is sparse, but tonight it was timely.
Joe Pavelski scored the winner in the fourth round of the shootout, but he wasnât the only story line in tonightâs game.

Vancouver is back home once again to take on the high-flying San Jose Sharks. This one should have all the action and intensity of a playoff game because these two teams really don't like each other.
Vancouver is coming off a disappointing loss that as a result...
The San Jose Sharks still haven't solved their scoring issues, but solid defense has helped key their best stretch since the beginning of the season.
They thrived on both ends of the ice in their first meeting with the Calgary Flames.
Visiting San Jose seeks a seventh victory in its last nine matchups versus Calgary on Wednesday night.
The Sharks' 4-1 season-opening victory...
The San Jose Sharks started to do a better job of limiting the Sedin brothers last season, and they know that's critical against the Vancouver Canucks.
The Sharks held the Sedins without a point earlier this year, and these teams meet again Tuesday night in Vancouver - where San Jose has failed to win in regulation in its last eight visits including the postseason.
