SJ Sharks Wasting Time On Power Play


Tonight we saw the Sharks on the power play and for life of me they continue to waste value time on the man advantage. They must take full advantage of being up a man because teams are taking notice that this is a weakness they are showing. I know they are making an effort, however they really need to go the extra mile in order to succeed. Bottomline is they need to make quicker decision with the puck and not hold on to it. When a man is open on the power play, the Sharks have to give that person the opportunity to score because if they don’t it will comeback to bite them in the end, just like tonight in OT when the Sharks had a 4 on 3 opportunity to end it.  On the other side of the coin, the game went to a shootout instead.  Let this be a hard lesson in time management the Sharks have to understand on the power play.
