On the Sharks podcast with Mary:

#1 With former San Jose Sharks Gustav Nyquist, Justin Braun, Joe Pavelski, and Joonas Donskoi no longer with the team, has their absence been a pretty obvious issue with their rough preseason and opening game in Vegas and Friday night at SAP or is it an adjustment with this season’s roster?

#2 The Sharks played the Vegas Golden Knights three times, two in preseason and once in regular season. Was their play in the opener reflective of who this team is? It’s early, but are they trying to fill holes or are they trying to find their chemistry?

#3 The Sharks lost to the Knights by three goals. The Knights came out in the first period scoring twice and once in each of the second and third periods. The Knights looked like the dominant team on Thursday night. Sharks lost by four on Friday night and starter Marty Jones was pulled in the third period for goalie Aaron Dell.

#4 Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer said that the Knights are a fast starting team and the goal is not to get behind early and the Knight are noted for their potent offense. The Knights virtually could have shutout the Sharks on Friday night but got a four goal win 5-1 at SAP Center on San Jose ice.

#5 One thing the Knights haven’t forgotten is how they lost a 3-0 lead in Game 7 of last year’s playoffs and lost the first round of the playoffs.
