Jabber Jaws: Couture, “You have to put an end to losing streaks.”

Photo by Matt Cohen/Icon Sportswire via After a 7-1 loss to the league-leading Tampa Bay Lightning, head coach Bob Boughner, James Reimer, Logan Couture and Andrew Cogliano took to the mic. For the San Jose Sharks, two losses in a row are a heavy blow as they hit the midway point in the season, and the race for the playoffs heats up. Last night’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning was a test of how capable the Sharks are at playing top-tier teams, and they failed. With stalwart players like Erik Karlsson and Jake Middleton out, the blue line struggled, but from the...

Quick Bites: Sharks outclassed by Lightning in 7-1 rout

Photo by Kavin Mistry/NHLI via Whatever could go wrong for the Sharks, did. When you’re up against the reigning back-to-back Stanley Cup Champions, it’s already a pretty tough task to get a good result. The San Jose Sharks sure found that out last night, looking like “boys against men” in the words of head coach Bob Boughner, as the team was trounced by the Tampa Bay Lightning. From the get-go, the Lightning demonstrated that the game would be theirs and nothing but theirs, dominating the Sharks in possession. The first blow to the Sharks came just four minutes...

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports The two time defending Stanley Cup Champions are in town and the San Jose Sharks are without top defenseman Erik Karlsson, who is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. The season series against the Tampa Bay Lightning will be over quickly, but it kicks off a brutal run against the league’s heavy-hitters.

Lightning at Sharks Preview: A tale of two Bays

Photo by Matt Cohen/Icon Sportswire via Can the Sharks return to their shoot-first, physical identity to win big at home? The Tampa Bay Lightning present a formidable opponent for the San Jose Sharks, who have been trading wins and losses like it’s loose change. As the Sharks seek to stay in the playoff hunt, every win matters, and they’ll need a hefty dose of confidence (and spite) to roll off a loss to the bottom-of-the-standings Seattle Kraken to face the league-leaders tomorrow night. The Lightning have had a relatively easy week of wins, losing just one game...

Barracuda’s Krystof Hrabik suspended 30 games for racist taunt

NHLI via The Sharks have offered “sincerest apologies to Boko, the Roadrunners organization, the AHL, our fans, and the entire hockey community” in a statement. The American Hockey League announced this morning that San Jose Barracuda winger Krystof Hrabik has been suspended for 30 games as a result of racist gestures made toward Tucson Roadrunners winger Boko Imama during a game between the two teams on Jan. 12. Hrabik has already served three games of the suspension while the league investigated reports from the officials working the game. Reportedly, Hrabik...

Quick Bites: Seattle shakes down Sharks

Photo by Christopher Mast/NHLI via Too many familiar faces in Seattle showed San Jose what they lost by letting them go. The San Jose Sharks made their way to the Climate Pledge arena to face the Seattle Kraken for their second time meeting and first time in the Kraken’s new digs. After Timo Meier’s historic game against the Los Angeles Kings, culminating in a 6-2 win, the Sharks were riding high entering the Pacific Northwest. Lane Pederson and Joachim Blichfield were healthy scratches, while Adin Hill was back in net, giving James Reimer a day off. Rudolfs...

The San Jose Sharks will try to capitalize against the eighth-place Seattle Kraken tonight with Adin Hill in net, and Adam Raska drawing into the line-up. It’s also a good opportunity to figure things out before a tough upcoming five-game stretch which includes games against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Washington Capitals, Florida Panthers and Carolina Hurricanes — all teams with 50+ points already this season.

Photo by Kavin Mistry/NHLI via The NHL announces schedule updates, the Sharks make roster moves and more in today’s news and notes. The NHL has had to contend with over 100 games postponed due to COVID-19, but with the NHL and NHLPA agreeing to pull out of the 2022 Winter Olympics, the month of February has become relevant again, with the bulk of the rescheduled games during that time. For some — namely the Canadian teams — February will be a busy month. For others, like the San Jose Sharks, it’ll be a month of much-needed rest ahead of the playoffs. The Sharks...

Photo by Kavin Mistry/NHLI via With defensive coverage an ongoing issue, the return of Sharks’ power play success and changes on defense improve the team’s playoff chances. Timo Meier’s five-goal night was a historic achievement none of us will be forgetting anytime soon. While goal-scoring was the focus of the San Jose Sharks’ last game, versus the Los Angeles Kings, there were some quiet successes elsewhere in the line-up, namely the power play, and defense. Prior to the tilt against the LA Kings, the Sharks’ power play had languished in the standings,...

Photo by Amanda Cain/NHLI Battle of the sea creatures, part two. Their turf this time. You never want to play against a team with confidence in hockey. It’s the only sport where I truly think the competitive level and pure drive can be more important than skill. Before Monday night, this would’ve been a good thing for the San Jose Sharks (21-17-2, fourth Pacific), who will be visiting the Seattle Kraken (11-23-4, eighth Pacific) on Thursday night. The Kraken’s last win at that point had come on Dec. 14, over a month ago. However, the league’s newest team may...

Timo Meier’s record breaking afternoon provided a lot of excitement at the Tank yesterday. He netted five goals by the second period, bringing his total to 20 goals on the season. Meier became the fifth player in the last 25 years to score five goals in a game, and the first for the San Jose Sharks.

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports A super-charged Timo Meier scores five goals to crush the Kings. An afternoon game comes once in a blue moon for the San Jose Sharks, and their 1 p.m. local start tilt against the Los Angeles Kings came on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The Sharks organization, rounded out by Jasper Weatherby and Brent Burns, played a video discussing the importance and meaning of MLK day during the first TV timeout, which was a great reminder of the significance of the afternoon game. The first few minutes were filled with missed connections for both teams, but...

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports Just going to play this game on a loop for awhile. Games with earlier than expected start times are either a snoozefest, or can’t-miss hockey. Whatever Timo Meier had for breakfast needs to be worked into everybody’s pregame routine ASAP, because he put on an absolute clinic against Jonathan Quick and the Los Angeles Kings, single-handedly powering the San Jose Sharks to a 6-2 win. Let’s just watch all five goals, shall we? We begin our story with this little power play number early in the first period. Go All-Star, that's our...
