This shortened NHL season has been a huge disappointment thus far for the San Jose Sharks. They started the season 7-0-0 (that’s longer than even the Blackhawks went without a loss), only to free fall into the playoff bubble, winning five of their next 21 games. Yes, after starting 7-0-0, the Sharks went 5-10-6. That’s five wins and 16 losses.
So, as a new Sharks blogger, I’m getting tired of talking about the same old thing day in and day out, and I won’t do it anymore. I just don’t want to talk about the Sharks.
I don’t want to talk about how they have the same amount of wins as the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Just think about that for a minute.
I don’t want to talk about how the Sharks can’t score goals.
Right now, they’re 29th in goals/game, in front of lowly Columbus, and just behind Nashville.
I don’t want to talk about the Sharks’ uncanny ability to continue making mistakes at the worst possible times.
And I don’t have to. Let’s take a look at the video evidence against Anaheim.
Oh, come the fuck on…
I especially don’t want to talk about the likelihood of the “three years in a row, lottery pick winning” Edmonton Oilers winning tonight.
Because their likelihood is good. At this rate, it’s hard to be hopeful for the Sharks to do too much. Maybe they only let up 3 goals this time? Maybe they wait to lose until overtime?
(Inaccurate) Prediction: Oilers win 4-1, because why the hell not?
