So that Sharks game last night was going just fine and dandy. San Jose was up 3-2 on Minnesota with 7:40 or so remaining in the game.
Then Marek Zidlicky turned at the red line and put a soft, backhand dump in on goal and… well look at that he scored.
That’s now three straight games without a win, the Sharks’ third such streak since the end of January. If I didn’t know better, I’d say Todd McLellan was tanking it for his old team, the Red Wings, to take the No. 1 spot in the West. That can be the only logical explanation for giving Brian Boucher three straight starts.
Yeah, Nabokov misses three games with the flu and now has a quote-unquote lower body injury? Who’s buying that?
