Future of San Jose Sharks

Well, the San Jose Sharks didn’t have the type of season a lot of fans hoped they’d of had. There was a little bit of a false omen going into the season, if you believe in that sort of thing. The Sharks ended the 2013-14 season in heartbreaking fashion, blowing a 3-0 series lead to the eventual Stanley Cup Champion, LA Kings in the first round of the playoffs. What was one of...

Looking ahead to Buffalo’s goaltending options for 2015-16 by @2ITB_Buffalo

At long last, time is winding down on the Sabres season. The marathon trek to the league basement is all but complete at this point as the Sabres hold a four-point advantage over the Arizona Coyotes for the right to the 20% odds at the NHL Draft Lottery. While the Sabres aren’t yet guaranteed one of the top two picks in the draft, it’s looking more and more likely that t...

San Jose Sharks: Highs and lows versus Chicago Blackhawks

Antti Niemi Right out of the gate, the San Jose Sharks were all over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday’s midday match-up, but it was the visiting Hawks who would walk away with a big win after 60 minutes of play.

Antti Niemi might have been saved by Sharks vets

Kirby Lee, USA TODAY Sports Whenever we hear about the San Jose Sharks these days, it’s rarely positive. A report out of the Mercury-News might have hinted at a little bit of it coming out of Sharks camp, though. Since the trade deadline, goalie Antti Niemi has been noticeably better, posting a .941 save percentage and allowing just six goals on 102 shots. Where did the improvement...

RECAP: Game 66. Undeserved fate. Pens fall in shootout despite badly out playing Sharks.

The Penguins deserved to win this game.  But, they didn’t.  There is no other way to look at it. In the third period, the Penguins came in waves.  Shift after shift.  The Penguins first and second lines threw everything they had at the Sharks.  It was easily one of the best games anyone has seen Sidney Crosby play in awhile. He tied the game on a wicked backhand and, from...
