On the Sharks podcast with Mary Lisa:
#1 It’s not getting any better and the players in the dressing room knew it before it was over as the Sharks had a 2-1 lead disappear after the Canucks scored three unanswered goals in the third period for a 4-2 win at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
#2 The Sharks looked like they had things under control in the second period with neither team scoring and the Sharks holding a 2-1 lead.
#3 The three unanswered goals in the third period started with the Canucks’ Tanner Pearson, who didn’t waste anytime scoring at 11:18. The Canucks’ second goal was by Markus Granlund at 13:39, and then Troy Stecher came through with a short-handed goal.
#4 How much is this the defense’s fault or goaltender Martin Jones, who bears most of the responsibility for a loss like this?
#5 The Sharks try again in Edmonton and they just might have a shot at getting a win. The Oilers have lost their last four games with recent losses to the Avalanche, Knights, Ducks, and Stars.
