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.
