Ted's Blog: Still Watching the NHL Playoffs

I am a Washington Capitals fan, as I have blogged about in the past, but with them out of the playoffs I am still watching (and now cheering for) the Nashville Predators.

Will Patty and Jumbo Return?

By: Sam Lubman Three years ago, after blowing a 3-0 lead against the Los Angeles Kings, the Sharks were tasked with answering a very difficult question: should Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton return next season? It was a tense time, as any Sharks fan can attest, seeing as the team seemed to be...

The Myth of Momentum in Playoff Hockey

By: Sam Lubman What a great win for the Sharks last night! 7-0! And each goal seemed to fire up the Sharks as much as it did the fans. Scoring almost seemed contagious for our Los Tiburones.

Sharks Finally Win, Clinch Playoff Berth

It is not often you see a team clinch a playoff berth before it can end its losing streak, but the San Jose Sharks did just that while beating the New York Rangers 5-4 in overtime Tuesday night at SAP Center. Brent Burns, letting loose a loud Wookie roar, fired the game-winning goal past Henrik...

Which Sharks Could Become Knights

I am sure the last thing you want to hear is news that more Bay Area athletes are going to move to Las Vegas, but sadly, just because you don't want to hear it, doesn't mean we won't say it. Sorry. That is the harsh reality though. And the further harsh reality is that the Oakland Raiders are not...

Don't Panic Over The Sharks Losing Streak

As I am sure you have noticed, the Sharks are in a bit of a losing skid. But don’t panic.
