On the Sharks podcast with Mary Lisa:
#1 The San Jose Sharks (21-17-2) Timo Meier has had a great season with 25 goals and 24 assists but he had the game of his career on Monday afternoon against the Los Angeles Kings (20-14-5) at SAP Center in San Jose scoring five goals in one game he was just simply unstoppable.
#2 Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick who played for the whole game allowed six goals and faced 17 shots just didn’t either have the defense in front, had himself a poorly defensive game or Meier played like Bobby Orr and Alex Ovechkin rolled into one.
#3 On the defensive end the Sharks just allowed two goals for the Kings one scored in the first period and another in the third period and the Kings had won four straight games previous to Monday’s game with the Sharks.
#4 Sharks goaltender James Reimer was on top of things between the pipes Monday against the Kings with 39 saves against two goals allowed. Talk how big Reimer has been for the Sharks this season.
