141101 – Pregame Islanders @ Sharks 7pm

Sharks are coming back from a (relatively) short 3-game road trip, where they earned 5 of 6 points.  But they’re hungry for more.  They had the day off Friday/Halloween (so perhaps there will be some tweets of some of the costumes they’re having fun with). (As of Thursday night, the Sharks were one of two teams in the league who have played 12 games.) They’ll get a bit of a break with this game Saturday, and then time of practice before their next game on Thursday, and then heading back on the road (for seven games!). They lead the league in goals against in the third period, so that is definitely something to work on. (And overcome the TWO denied goals from incidental goalie contact.)

Islanders are 30th in PK, but are sitting 2nd in the Metropolitan division.

Sharks lost in a shootout when visiting the Islanders a couple of weeks ago.

It’ll be Tomas Hertl’s 50th NHL game. But he’ll be playing on the bottom 6.

Niemi scheduled to start for the Sharks (3rd in a row).

Pregame notes

Sharks had a 3-1 lead, but the Wild came back to tie it 3-3.  And the Sharks lost in the shootout.

Goodrow made his NHL debut. Mueller scored his first goal.  Thornton’s goal tied him with Damphousse on all-time points list.

Sharks are coming off a tight-defensive win in SO at Colorado.

The Wild are returning home after games in New York (Rangers) and Boston. Against the Rangers, they had a lead and lost it. But with the Bruins, they came from behind to win.

Niemi starting vs Keumper for Wild.

Pregame notes

(Had to miss part of the game live for a meeting.)

Seemed to be a high defensive, goalie-dominated game.

Came down to the shootout, and the Sharks scored twice, while none of the Avalanche shooters got past Niemi.

John Scott was suspended by the NHL for two games from Sunday’s game.  Tyler Kennedy was assigned to Worcester for LTIR conditioning stint.

This game will be the first that the two McGinn brothers will play against each other (at any level), excluding games on family rink.  Looks to be Niemi starting for the Sharks.

141026 – Sharks @ Ducks (postgame)

My, my, my, my, my!  The Sharks and Ducks really do not like each other.  Sharks had a commanding 4-0 lead, when every whistle included tussles and fights.

But the Sharks ended their losing streak.  And Burns continues his scoring (and potential Norris candidacy).
