Bruins rally to beat Sharks, 5-3

The Bruins wanted to pull out their Tuesday best with the high-powered San Jose Sharks coming to town, and that’s exactly what they did. It wasn’t perfect for the Black and Gold, but they played arguably their best game of the season hanging with the Sharks all game prior to pulling it out with a pair of third period goals. Seth Griffith tied it with his first NHL goal, and...

Top 5 Toughest Chicago Blackhawks

As a sport, hockey lends itself to tough, gritty players who don’t give up. The Chicago Blackhawks have had plenty of bruisers and grinders through the years. While they never had players like the Hanson Brothers, The Blackhawks certainly know when to drop the gloves. The Blackhawks helped define “Old Time Hockey” during the NHL’s formative years, and carry that spirit to...

Sharks give former captain Thornton an 'A'

San Jose Sharks center Joe Thornton had the captaincy taken away from him during the offseason after wearing the "C" on a full-time basis for four seasons, but he'll still wear a letter on his sweater in 2014-15. The Sharks on Wednesday named four alternate captains -- Thornton, Joe Pavelski, Patrick Marleau and Marc-Edouard Vlasic. Marleau is also a former Sharks...

Sharks 2014-15 Season Preview

For a 10th straight season, we saw the Sharks finish in the top-3 of the Pacific Division and make the playoffs. But for a 10th straight season, we also saw the Sharks fall short in the playoffs, and possibly in the most dramatic fashion yet. During an off-season where general manager Doug Wilson announced the team would be handing itself over to its “younger core” and “rebuilding...

Sharks open with new vibe after playoff collapse

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) A tumultuous offseason that featured a rehash of a historic playoff collapse, talk of rebuilding and questions about the leadership on and off the ice has mercifully come to an end for the San Jose Sharks. The Sharks returned to practice Friday for the opening of training camp, looking to put that playoff loss to Los Angeles in the past and build a new kind...

2014-15 San Jose Sharks Preview: New Leadership Group Ready To Emerge?

The San Jose Sharks were embarrassed in last year’s Stanley Cup playoffs when they blew a 3-0 series lead and lost to the eventual champion Los Angeles Kings in Round 1. Major changes to the roster and coaching staff were expected as a result of this failure, but none of them have been made so far. Head coach Todd McLellan still is behind the bench, and veteran players largely...

What is going on with the San Jose Sharks?

It has to be tough to be a fan of the San Jose Sharks these days. It was bad enough watching the Sharks, a perennial regular-season powerhouse, take a 3-0 series lead on the Los Angeles Kings only to see that lead disappear, ending in a heart-breaking Game 7 loss to the eventual Stanley Cup Champions. Having a historical comeback like that happen against you can be traumatizing and...

Trying to make sense of the ‘rebuild’ in San Jose

San Jose general manager Doug Wilson has always maintained that any conversations he had with Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau would remain private, so it’s impossible to conclude, exactly, what’s been said between the club and the two veterans since the Sharks blew a 3-0 series lead versus the Kings in the first round of the 2014 playoffs. That said, a lot of people have hazarded...

Joe Thornton draws interest but Sharks in no hurry to make major trade

When general manager Doug Wilson declared last month that the Sharks were in a rebuild phase, the 72 hours leading up to Friday night's NHL draft seemed to be the ideal time for a major trade -- maybe even one involving Joe Thornton or Patrick Marleau. Now, every signal indicates that won't be happening. For one thing, Thornton and Marleau have shown no intention of waiving...

Los Angeles Kings Complete Historic Playoff Run

When Patrick Marleau netted an overtime winner in the first round of the NHL playoffs to put the San Jose Sharks up 3-0 in their series with Los Angeles, very few still envisioned the Kings hoisting their second Stanley Cup in three years.
