SAN JOSE–The San Jose Sharks in recent weeks have been lacking and have been all over the ice and have lost eight of the last ten games. The Sharks had an eight game losing streak going until they were able to defeat the New York Rangers on Tuesday Mar 28th game at SAP Center. The Sharks are looking at mass rebuilding over the summer. The Sharks after losing 5-2 in Calgary on Friday night did play a better game in Vancouver on Sunday with a two goal 3-1 win. The Canucks are a weaker competitor and the Flames just took it to San Jose on Friday.

The Canucks just didn’t have any zip in their step and they couldn’t catch up to the Sharks and couldn’t give the Sharks a real competition. The Canucks tried to come back late in the game but it was way late to say least. Another problem with that game for San Jose was all the injuries, Logan Couture missed his fourth game with that facial reconstruction possibility with the puck to the mouth. Then the end of the first period the big blow the Thornton injury we haven’t heard the latest with Jumbo Joe Thornton with a possible left knee hyper extension twisted it could be worse were waiting for word from the Sharks.

Len Shapiro has a whole lot more on the Sharks podcast as the plot thickens in the Sharks up and down situation as they close out  their last three home games starting Tuesday night with Vancouver. Listen to the podcast each Monday with Len at
