Len Shapiro on the Sharks podcast:
#1 Another tough loss for the San Jose Sharks on Monday night to the Vegas Golden Knights in a 3-2 shootout. The Knights down 2-1 at one time during the game came back to tie it up 2-2 and force a shootout where they picked up the game winner.
#2 The Sharks goaltender Martin Jones whose had his share of tough nights in front of the net stopped 38 shots out of 40 during regulation. Does Jones lack the defensive protection up front or are some of the shots he facing been some tough chances?
#3 The Sharks got goals in the first period from defenceman Nikolai Knyzhov in the first period at 9:27 and center Noah Gregor who scored in the second period at 0:29.
#4 It wasn’t the Sharks night but it sure was Patrick Marleau’s who was congratulated for setting the all time record for most games played at 1,768 passing Mr. Hockey Gordy Howe.
#5 The Sharks are back to the drawing board facing the Golden Knights again tonight at the T Mobile Center. The Sharks would like nothing more than to snap their six game losing streak than tonight.
