A sweep — a veritable sweep! The San Jose Sharks now get to sit and wait for the first round to conclude before traveling to Vegas to play the Golden Knights. And will apparently be big underdogs, it seems. Alex and Ben talk about how the Sharks and Knights reached the second round, the similarities in their play against bad Pacific Division teams in the first round, and what we expect from the second round series. We also talk about what happens to the Sharks lineup when Jumbo inevitably returns to the lineup some time soon. For now, everyone rests and gets healthier — just what the doctor literally ordered.
The #sjsharks were measured by most to be, at best, an even matchup for the Anaheim Ducks as this series approached, largely, I’d have to think, because of differences between how their seasons ended. Now, this mainly came down to health issues for the Sharks, with most of their 4th line and Evander Kane being injured. So, it turns out a healthy Sharks team has had their way on the road against the Ducks so far. Will this success continue for the Sharks the rest of the series? We have thoughts.
It’s time to talk about what the #sjsharks are going to do in the playoffs. Unfortunately, since DeBoer doesn’t seem to be sure who he’s going to be playing or have available, we…kinda don’t know. But we can speculate. And we do. All that and some coverage of this week’s not great performances.
