Todd McLellan doesn’t want his team to forget about what happened in that 6-2 embarrassment in Columbus on Monday night when they face the Nashville Predators tonight.
“I want them to be pissed off. I want them to be mad. I want them to be upset,” McLellan said after a team meeting that lasted 20-25 minutes at Bridgestone Arena.
Players were shown video of what went wrong against the Blue Jackets, but McLellan didn’t go beyond a “message delivered” explanation as far as any specifics.
“We’re looking for the response now,” he said.

“This one sucks.”

That's six. I hate to think what the farmer's new bride would do to the person who crossed her six times, but I'm sort of relieved that the Sharks got this out of the way. If they were mystified about why they lost again, after doing so many things so much better, well, it could not have happened any other way. Once they lost five, the sixth loss was going to will itself...
Patrick Marleau’s tenth goal of the season came in a shocking loss for the San Jose Sharks. They were beaten up and down the ice by the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-2. San Jose has now lost five in a row (0-3-2) following their 7-0-0 start. Columbus was averaging 1.92 goals per game coming into this one and the Sharks allowed 1.82 goals per game so this result was totally unexpected...
The ATP 250 tournament currently called the SAP Open, and currently hosted in San Jose, California, has been in continuous operation in some form since 1889, making it the second oldest tennis tournament in the United States.

2. Paul MacLean is still a great coach for the Ottawa Senators — no sophomore...
