Sharks hold off Kings, even series

Kearns Finally Found The Right Situation

from Eric Gilmore at NHL.com,  San Jose Sharks forward Bracken Kearns already had played for seven different minor-league teams over six-plus seasons before he made his NHL debut, Oct. 20, 2011, as a member of the Florida Panthers.

Logan Couture ‘all good’ to play for Sharks in Game 4 vs. Kings

Logan Couture said he is “all good” to play in Game 4 Tuesday night against the Kings. Couture, who has developed into the Sharks’ primary offensive threat, was gone for most of the second period in Game 3 Saturday with a leg injury, leaving many Sharks fans in the Tank awaiting in their seats with soiled pants. Couture, of course, returned and went on to score the game-winner...

Cam Gore: Sharks draw even in series with another one goal win

The San Jose Sharks carried the play for the first two periods and held on for the third to come out ahead 2-1 in game four to even the series at 2 apiece with the LA Kings. Like during the regular season the home team is yet to lose in the battle of LA versus San Jose. The Sharks are going to have to figure out a way to win at the Staples center while holding court at the Shark Tank if the...

Sharks hang on to beat Kings 2-1 and tie series

The San Jose Sharks absolutely dominated the Los Angeles Kings through the first period Tuesday night at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, out shooting the reigning Champs 15-3. “I thought they were great, established a relentless forecheck, and used their size to their advantage, ” said Sharks’ head coach Todd McLellan. “Obviously that got us the first goal. The momentum they...

(AP) -- Brent Burns helped San Jose jump off to a fast start with his second goal of the postseason and the Sharks tied their second-round series against Los Angeles at two games with a 2-1 victory over the Kings in Game 4 on Tuesday night.

TiqIQ Ticket Preview: Sharks vs. Kings

By Matthew Feuerman of TiqIQ, It was close late in Game 3, but in the end, Antti Niemi got it done for the San Jose Sharks. The veteran goalkeeper stopped 22 of 23 stops en route to a clutch victory for the Sharks, their second in a row. It was also the second straight game where Niemi was near unbeatable.

TRH 2ND ROUND PLAYOFF RECAP 4 - SAN JOSE SHARKS: FOUR GET

*THE FOLLOWING BELOW IS NOT WRITTEN BY THE ROYAL HALF, BUT RATHER PUMPERNICHOLL, OUR MASTER RECAPPER* KINGS 2, SHARKS 2 The maddening conclusion of Games 2 and 3 left both fan bases bitter. Borderline calls by the referees had swung the momentum for opposing teams in each game and ultimately decided the outcome. Fans don't go to hockey games to watch the referees...

Kings-Sharks Preview

For all that the San Jose Sharks accomplished with their overtime victory over Los Angeles in Game 3, they know it will mean very little if they don't back that win up with another at home against the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings. ''We haven't accomplished anything,'' Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. ''We didn't get our work done in LA...

NHL Playoff Observations -- Tuesday

Just a few things that caught my eye: Joe Thornton's first period might have been his most dominant playoff performance. Ever. Jumbo? Nope. Larger than life ... including the massive man beard. Stick a fork in the Rangers. That stupid defensive system is sinking them. Bu-bye, Torts. Maybe Patrick Roy is holding out for a gig on Broadway instead of in Mile...

Hello? NHL?

from Ray Ratto of CSNBayArea, We are not expecting a Gary Bettman sighting for Game 4 of the Los Angeles Kings-San Jose Sharks series Tuesday night. Or for Game 5 on Thursday, and probably not Game 6 on Sunday, either. And maybe not even for Game 7, either. We remain hopeful for Game 8, though. Too bad, too. The one time the Bay Area would actually like to see him, he...

Sharks-Kings Preview

Kings goalie Jonathan Quick sometimes seems to be the only obstacle between San Jose and the Western Conference finals while the Sharks dominate much of their 2-2 series with the defending Stanley Cup champions. And if Quick needed any extra motivation to stop the Sharks again in the pivotal Game 5 on Thursday night, TJ Galiardi provided it. Galiardi accused the Conn Smythe Trophy...

Matthew Barry: We Got Ourselves a Series!

“We have no answer for Joe Thornton” – Darryl Sutter Matt Greene and Kyle Clifford didn’t help. The battle of the boards: Voynov didn’t want to be pounded like a 2 x 4 and avoided Joe Thornton like a freight train. Thornton won and the defenseman turned power forward scored easily. (And WHAT was Robyn Regehr actually DOING?) It was a rare 5 on 5...
