Can The Sharks Play “Pissed Off” Hockey?

I want them to be mad. I want them to be upset,” McLellan said after a team meeting that lasted 20-25 minutes...

Cam Gore: Sharks losing streak continues

The Sharks left Bridgestone arena in Nashville after falling 1-0 in overtime, but tonight they can leave with their pride. “A much better effort than last night” quipped Todd McLellan after the game. “Everybody that dressed contributed tonight.

Cam Gore: Sharks lose fifth straight in Columbus

It was all Blue Jackets right from the drop of the puck as the Sharks lost their fifth straight game as they played their first game in the Eastern Time zone. “Outworked, out executed, out detailed, out goaltended” were some of the choice words chosen by Todd McLellan when he described his team’s efforts tonight. “It’s a pretty simple league, the team...

Does Mallrats or Swingers have the better NHL video game movie scene

Today we’ve been talking about sports movie quotes on Twitter and Facebook and I wanted to keep it going. One of the nominees for our Retro Hall of Fame is NHL 94. This video game (or a later version of it) is played in two of pop culture’s greatest movies ever: Swingers and Mallrats. The question I’d pose is which movie’s NHL hockey video game scene is better? Swingers:...

Jackets, Sharks both trying to take advantage

They were riding high at the end of January, but this month has been a different story for the San Jose Sharks. Perhaps a visit to the Western Conference-worst Columbus Blue Jackets is just what they need to get back on track. The Sharks will try to snap a four-game skid on Monday night when they open a six-game road trip against the struggling Blue Jackets. After averaging 3.86...

About Last Night…Sharks Get Run Over By Columbus

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...

Another Typical Day Watching San Jose

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.

Early NHL Trends

from Mark Zwolinski of the Toronto Star, So here’s a look at 25 trends in the NHL as it hits the quarter pole this weekend: 1. The Leafs still need a big centre for the No. 1 line, an issue that won’t go away, particularly with four-games-in-six-nights scenarios on the condensed schedule. 2. Paul MacLean is still a great coach for the Ottawa Senators — no sophomore...
