Come on, San Jose Sharks. What gives?
Graphical errors during sports broadcasts are not a new phenomenon. And while said errors are perfectly understandable in light of the time crunch those charged with putting them together in order to air a competent, informative broadcast, they are nevertheless amusing when they do occur.
Take the one above from the postgame coverage of the San Jose Sharks-Nashville Predators game on Tuesday evening. While airing footage of San Jose Sharks head coach Todd McLellan being interviewed, a graphic was put up showing the supposed stat lines of the top two defensemen for the Sharks, who happened to be designated as Dan Boyle and Brent Burns.
Despite the Sharks getting a curious statistical output of 6 RBI, 2 HR from Boyle and Burns and despite the two going hitless, the Sharks still came up short, suffering a shutout and losing 1-0. I guess if a graphic is going to be incorrect, it might as well be completely nonsensical and hilarious.

This is the new headgear for Sharks goalie Thomas Greiss. I have no clue what in the world that demon creature is supposed to be. Is it a zombie? Is it a werewolf? Is it a zombie werewolf? Maybe Ryane Clowe having a bad day? All I do know is my pants are now a little more damp than they were. [photo via @kkurzcsn]

The Sharks left Bridgestone arena in Nashville after falling 1-0 in overtime, but tonight they can leave with their pride.
âA much better effort than last nightâ quipped Todd McLellan after the game.

It’s not often that you see two superstars pair off to go at it with each other, but that’s exactly what happened on Friday night when the Chicago Blackhawks took on the San Jose Sharks. Sharks captain Joe Thornton has 26 fights under his belt now, and this gives Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews three total fights for his career. Toews was incensed the entire shift and was...

San Jose fans, media and the Sharks themselves feel the officials stole the game from them when the Blackhawks won at the Tank a couple of weeks ago. While there's room for debate...
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...
