Somewhere Jeremy Roenick is pinching himself to see if this is all a dream. Patrick Marleau, the player Roenick has so often attacked as being “soft,” sent the Sharks to the second round of the NHL Playoffs Tuesday night with a goal in overtime to seal the sweep of the Vancouver Canucks.
Joe Thornton took a power-play shot that managed to sneak past Vancouver goalie Cory Schneider but was coming to a stop. Only, it didn’t come to a stop because Marleau, following up the play, was able to tap it into the goal for the game winner. With the overtime winner, Marleau has scored a goal in each of the four playoff games that San Jose has played so far this post season.
A little vindication perhaps, although Marleau would likely never admit it.
San Jose was staked to an early 2-1 lead through the first 20 minutes of hockey with Brent Burns and Joe Pavelski each scoring goals in the first period. Mason Raymond added a goal for Vancouver.
After the Canucks managed to take a brief 3-2 lead in...

The San Jose Sharks will begin the second round of the playoffs somewhat short-handed after losing forward Adam Burish to an undisclosed upper-body injury.
Burish got hurt during the team's 4-3 overtime win over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night that wrapped up the first playoff sweep in franchise history. Burish did not return to that game after being slashed by Vancouver...
The Sharks don’t know as of yet whom their opponent will be in the Western Conference Semifinals, but they do know they will be short one forward for the entire series.
On Thursday the team announced that winger Adam Burish will not play in the next round because of an unspecified upper body injury sustained in the series-clinching Game 4 win over the Canucks on Tuesday. Burish...
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...
After a first round sweep of the Vancouver Canucks, the Sharks are resting up as they await their Western Conference Semifinal opponent.
With the NHL playoffs being played at a bruising and punishing pace, the one thing the Sharks are absolutely rooting for is that all other Western Conference series to go seven games.
As the six seed, San Jose will most likely not have home ice...
Vancouver Canucks forwards Daniel and Henrik Sedin and defenseman Alex Edler will play for Sweden at the world hockey championships.
J.P. Barry, the Sedins' agent, confirmed Wednesday the twins will play for their homeland at the tournament. They will leave Vancouver for Stockholm on Friday after attending a media availability to discuss the disappointing end of the Canucks...
This was golden, I know this is a day old but It’s worth the read if you haven’t seen it yet. Former Badger forward and current San Jose Shark Adam Burish responded to Vancouver Canucks defenseman Bieska’s charges that the Sharks were embellishing during their series against the Canucks. On its face, this charge is hilarious, if not preposterous, because the Canucks are known...
from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,
When next season begins, the Vancouver Canucks will once again be a strong contender to make the playoffs — and if things go well, perhaps even challenge for the lead at times in their newly realigned environment.
They’ll still have outstanding goaltending, and a decent back end, and general manager Mike Gillis will have...
Ever since the Vancouver Canucks and their fans christened themselves Stanley Cup champions after Game TWO, Bruins fans (and most of the hockey loving world) revel annually in their demise.
Looks like the Canucks have been psychologically damaged by the Bruins in 2011. Vancouver has only won TWO playoff game since going up 2-0 in the Cup Final.
They lost to the Bruins 4 games to...
Bust out the brooms, San Jose fans. You just swept your way to the conference finals. In an action-packed, back-and-forth slugfest, the San Jose Sharks finished off the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 (OT) on their home ice Tuesday night, and will enjoy a few off days before they face the winner of the Minnesota Wild-Chicago Blackhawks series. In a game that featured a load of undisciplined...
The one thing that I do know about sports fans is that when the games are going on, there are very few things that will prevent them for turning away from the action.

The Vancouver Canucks were swept out of the playoffs by the San Jose Sharks, earning the unfortunate distinction of being the first team sent home from the 2013 postseason. The Sharks completed the sweep with a 4-3 win in OT on Tuesday night, earning the squad a spot in the second round.
Vancouver's season ends almost exactly as it began with fans questioning the team'...

Okay, First things first. The Vancouver Canucks have called a press conference for Noon today.
Early rumblings are that not much is going to be coming out of this. It's very likely Mike Gillis will take to the podium, tippy toe around the issues, thank fans, apologize that this wasn'...
