SJ Sharks podcast with Len Shapiro:
#1 Len, the San Jose Sharks (10-9-1) embark on a five game road trip back east they open up against the Chicago Blackhawks (7-11-2). Tell us how you see this five game trip and the Sharks chances of success on this trip.
#2 The Sharks have lost five of their last eight games including a tough loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs (15-6-1) 4-1 on Friday night.
#3 James Reimer San Jose goaltender allowed four Toronto goals and saved 13 and was later relieved by Adin Hill who didn’t allow any goals and had 16 saves.
#4 Toronto goaltender Joseph Woll was like Wall he stopped 33 shots and allowed just one goal and the Maple Leafs defense kept the Sharks pretty much at bay much of the night.
#5 The Sharks play the Blackhawks Sunday afternoon at the United Center the Blackhawks have had their share of issues they started the season losing nine in a row, they had the David Aldrich sex scandal which played a role in disrupting the team, they fired their head coach Jeremy Colliton and assistant coaches Sheldon Brookbank and Tomas Mitell leaving with a 1-9-2 record on Nov 6th. Since new coach Derek King has taken over the Blackhawks are 6-2 and won their last game against the St Louis Blues (10-7-3) on Friday night in overtime 3-2. How do you see the Sharks matching up against the Hawks Sunday?
