“That’s exactly what we want to eliminate from the game, exactly,” Sharks coach Todd McLellan said.
Desjardins said he was taken to what is known in the NHL as the “quiet room” after the hit, but he said after the game he was feeling much better.

When talking about the Sharks and the Jets, I think you have to mention West Side Story, so I did. The Sharks @ Winnipeg was not a surprising game, unless you consider shut outs surprising. The better ranked team won, there were no calamitous incidents, no very strange penalties. The Sharks don’t have very many shut outs this season, so another does add some needed sparkle...
