On the Sharks podcast with Mary Lisa:

#1 The looks on San Jose Sharks general Doug Wilson and new Sharks head coach Bob Boughner at Thursday’s press conference was the feel good of optimism, but of major concern for the Sharks organization.

#2 Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson said that the firing of ex-coach Peter DeBoer came as a surprise saying that even though the firing was part of the business, it still came as a surprise for the players.

#3 Mary talks about the replacements for the Sharks. Joining Boughner are assistants Roy Sommer, former Sharks forward Mike Ricci, and goalie coach Evegeni Nabokov.

#4 Boughner and Wilson said they want to clean up two areas that need fixing that is the penalty minutes and allowing chances in the slot that are high-quality.

#5 The Sharks host the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday after losing six consecutive games. The Sharks will get a quick crash course from their new coaches and get ready to right the ship on Saturday night.
