On the Sharks podcast with Mary Lisa:

#1 The San Jose Sharks loss to the Arizona Coyotes is one of the games that Sharks head coach Bob Boughner would soon like to forget a 3-2 loss that saw the Yotes score a goal in each of the first, second and third periods on Tuesday night.

#2 The Sharks blew a 6-3 opportunity with 43 seconds left after the Coyotes committed two penalties and the Sharks pulled their goalie to try to boost the offense, but they couldn’t take advantage and failed to score and lost the game.

#3 The Sharks have failed to take advantage of the man advantage, scoring only once out of 15 times in their last five games.

#4 Tuesday’s game also saw the Sharks’ Tomas Hertl score twice, but the Sharks couldn’t capitalize as the Coyotes edged out three goals. Hertl put it all out there, but the Sharks just couldn’t get over the edge.

#5 The Sharks, who have lost seven of their last eight games and will try and get in the win column Saturday against the St. Louis Blues. Mary Lisa sets this one up for us.

San Jose Sharks podcast with Mary Lisa Walsh: Wild night as Sharks just capture their first multi game win this season

Photo credit sfgate.com: A fight breaks out between the San Jose Sharks and the Minnesota Wild during the second period of an NHL hockey game Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019, in San Jose, Calif.

On the Sharks podcast with Mary Lisa:

#1 The Sharks just hung on Thursday night against the Minnesota Wild to get their second straight win in a row, their first multi win this season.

#2 After two periods of play, the Sharks had a 6-2 lead, but almost let it slip away with three goals in the third period. While they won the game, did they lose focus in the third period to have the Wild cut the lead to one goal?

#3 Talk about the toe save by Sharks goalie Marty Jones on the Wild’s Zach Parise that would have put the game into overtime.

#4 Jones threw a shutout in the first two periods until that third and ended up saving 21 out 26.

#5 The Sharks host the Nashville Predators this Saturday. With the Sharks winning their last two games at home, how much of a difference has it been for San Jose since returning home from that long road trip?

San Jose Sharks podcast with Mary Lisa Walsh: Will four former Sharks be missed from this year’s team?

Photo credit: defendingbigd.com

On the Sharks podcast with Mary:

#1 With former San Jose Sharks Gustav Nyquist, Justin Braun, Joe Pavelski, and Joonas Donskoi no longer with the team, has their absence been a pretty obvious issue with their rough preseason and opening game in Vegas and Friday night at SAP or is it an adjustment with this season’s roster?

#2 The Sharks played the Vegas Golden Knights three times, two in preseason and once in regular season. Was their play in the opener reflective of who this team is? It’s early, but are they trying to fill holes or are they trying to find their chemistry?

#3 The Sharks lost to the Knights by three goals. The Knights came out in the first period scoring twice and once in each of the second and third periods. The Knights looked like the dominant team on Thursday night. Sharks lost by four on Friday night and starter Marty Jones was pulled in the third period for goalie Aaron Dell.

#4 Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer said that the Knights are a fast starting team and the goal is not to get behind early and the Knight are noted for their potent offense. The Knights virtually could have shutout the Sharks on Friday night but got a four goal win 5-1 at SAP Center on San Jose ice.

#5 One thing the Knights haven’t forgotten is how they lost a 3-0 lead in Game 7 of last year’s playoffs and lost the first round of the playoffs.
