On the Sharks podcast with Len Shapiro:
#1 The Sharks (17-21-3) suffered their first shutout loss of the season getting blanked by the Detroit Red Wings (10-28-3) goalie Jonathan Bernier who stopped 34 shots
#2 Looking back on their loss to the Los Angeles Kings last Friday at SAP Center the Sharks had a 2-0 lead and watched the Kings scored three unanswered goals to come back on the Sharks for a 3-2 win does a loss like that take the wind out the Sharks sails which resulted in getting shutout by one of the worst teams in the NHL Detroit.
#3 With all the problems that the Red Wings have San Jose put those problems on hold as the Wings got scoring help from Tyler Bertuzzi and Filip Hronek with a goal in the second and third period.
#4 Since the coaching change from Peter DeBoer to Bob Boughner, Boghner has gone 1-5 was this team primarily damaged goods when Boughner took over, do they lack their old soul after former Sharks Joe Pavelski, Gustav Nyquist, Justin Braun, and Joonas Donskoi left the team in the off season?
#5 The Sharks head to Pittsburgh to face the Penguins (23-11-4) who have a three game win streak, the odds are not looking to good but the Sharks to respond to adversity in spite of not being able to hold leads in the third period
