Sharks Rookie Tomas Hertl In Awe Of Dave & Busters, Wins ‘Despicable Me’ Stuffed Animals

Tomas Hertl just wants to have fun. The San Jose Sharks rookie forward rose to national fame when he scored four goals against the New York Rangers back in October and continued his stellar play until he underwent major knee surgery in December, which sidelined him until the end of the regular season. Despite his status as a premier rookie, Hertl is as humble as it comes. The youthful...

Mike Brown and Raffi Torres scored second-period goals and the Sharks defeated the Kings 7-2 on Sunday, taking a 2-0 series lead. “They got us going and everybody followed,”...

The Atmosphere In San Jose

from Katie Baker of Grantland, Joe Louis Arena has its long history, TD Garden has its swagger, and the Bell Centre has that certain je ne sais quoi. But if I were compiling a list of favorite places to go to watch a hockey game, the Shark Tank in San Jose would be very close to the top. (Notice I call it the Shark Tank, and not the “SAP Center” — I’m still bitter that...

Sharks win, but series far from over

Calm down, citizens. Playoff series are best-of-seven. They are not best-of-two. Therefore, that the Sharks spent much of Sunday night making the Los Angeles Kings look like befuddled and slow Southern California commuters on the Santa Monica Freeway in sore need of a defensive Botox injection ... well, do not get too caught up in the froth. The Sharks' 7-2 victory was impressive...

Sharks come back to embarrass the Kings

In the words of the infamous Pierre McGuire, "get excited Sharks fans! McGuire says that every time a team drafts a player that he likes, but that quote still applies here. After seeing the Sharks come back from a 2-0 deficit and score seven straight, it just puts a huge smile on your face. The fans are so involved with the team, and they really want to beat LA bad, as evidenced...

Sharks d-man Vlasic's confidence grows after Olympics

If there was an unsung hero in the Sharks’ Game 1 win over Los Angeles on Thursday, it was probably defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic. Not that that’s anything new when it comes to San Jose’s best defenseman. Still arguably the most underappreciated player in the NHL, Vlasic popped in a power play goal and an assist in the Sharks’ 6-3 victory, and his five shots tied a team...

Playoff preview: San Jose Sharks vs Los Angeles Kings

I have stopped my hyperventilation and calmed myself down. The San Jose Sharks will be playing the Los Angeles Kings in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. For me, this match up is two things. First, it is worrying. The Kings lead the season series 3-1-1. Secondly, it’s exhilarating. A replay of last year’s Western Conference semifinal and another playoff match up between...

How the San Jose Sharks made the playoffs

It’s no real surprise that the San Jose Sharks made the playoffs considering they have the most consecutive playoff births in the league behind the Detroit Redwings. Let’s face it, if the Shark’s did not make the playoffs there would be some sort of riot. Or just me running around breaking things in a USA Pavelski jersey. Anyways, let’s get down to business. This is how the...

Will There Be a Death in the Kings/Sharks Series

I can't even FIND my blogs anymore Not ONE person took me up on making predictions? I know 500,000 people are coming here each week, but NO REPLIES?
