On the San Jose Sharks podcast with Chiranbir Mahal:

#1 Chiranbir, Who are these guys in teal are they the team who have lost their last two games or the team that won three in a row before these last two loses?

#2 The San Jose Sharks (6-11-3) on offense have been getting plenty of good offensive help by Timo Meier, Thomas Hertl, and Erik Karlsson but no matter they’ve been a question mark in past game in the third period, overtime or even in the shootout?

#3 That last game on Saturday night they battled with the New York Rangers (9-6-4) in a game that went right down to the third period once again. The Sharks scored a goal that they would hope that would stand up but all for not as the Rangers answered right back with two goals for the 2-1 win.

#4 Chiranbir, talk about goaltender James Reimer the Sharks count on him so much and the last game against the Rangers was no exception he allowed only one goal the other Ranger goal was an empty netter. Reimer faced 42 shots and stopped 41. Try as hard as you can that was an extraordinary effort by Reimer on Saturday night.
