Two goals in three games for a hockey player is pretty good. However, when it’s a hockey team scoring two goals in three games at home, it’s like icing on the power play… and that’s never good. Changes have to be made and need to start tonight.
Part of the changes planned for the Sharks tonight will be having head coach Todd McLellan back behind the bench. Word is that Martin Havlat will return sometime on the road trip, but the focus is tonight against an Edmonton Oilers squad who are likely looking towards next year.
San Jose needs to get their confidence and swagger back in their game. Continue to dictate their style and dominate. However, the penalty kill will be put up to the test as Edmonton boasts the best power play in the NHL. With the young talent of Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Jordan Eberle, this team will be a thorn to many clubs very soon.
Team Teal has the worst record (along with Toronto and Montreal) in the last ten games (2-7-1) in the NHL. Time to get things on track. Time for players like Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, and Ryane Clowe to show why they are so important to this organization.
Game time 7:30. LET’S PUCKING DO THIS!!!
