On the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs/SJ Sharks podcast with Len:
#1 Judging from the San Jose Sharks and the Colorado Avalanche, does Len see this series going to seven games?
#2 How much of a difference in goal has Avalanche goaltender Philipp Grubauer made in this series he’s been 93% average in league? His big game was game four when he shutout the Sharks 3-0 saved 32 shots in game four.
#3 Also, not to take anything away from Sharks goalie Martin Jones, whose save percentage is .910 in the postseason, which is up from his regular season save percentage of .896.
#4 Although the series is tied at 2-2, it’s important to note the Sharks won two of the first three games of this series and can lend into Game 5.
#5 The Avalanche’s Nathan McKinnon has six goals and seven assists in eight playoff games. How important is it for the Sharks defense to key in on him in Game 5?
#6 The Sharks have not been able to put a decent power play together in this series going 1-11.
#7 Thornton, Sorenson, LeBanc have combined for one assist in the last three games
#8 Hertl and Kane do not have a point in the last two games, Pavelski is a no show and will not play
