Canucks finally halt Sharks, 4-2

Once in a while, as if to show us that no game is gravely important, the hockey gods take over and have some fun. The Vancouver Canucks and San Jose Sharks were powerless to stop their folly Thursday in a game that featured goals bizarre, grotesque and comical. The Canucks, at least, could laugh along with the gods as they beat the Sharks 4-2 to end a nine-game losing streak against...

With about five minutes to play in the second period of a 1-1 game, Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick showed off why he is one of the best goalies in the NHL.  San Jose Sharks forward Joe Pavelski came out of the corner with the puck and looked like he was going to tuck it short side when he dished off the puck to Andrew Desjardins.  Quick was out of position and looked like...

The Sharks’ missing Ds

The Sharks were missing a couple of Ds last night.  Both Jason Demers and Andrew Desjardins missed all or part of the game for no good reason.  Is it any surprise then, that the team allowed more goals against than they had all season?  The NHL rescinded the match penalty against Andrew Desjardins before the game even ended.  I'm sure the Blues know how the Sharks feel....
