Playoff Hopes For The Ottawa Senators Fading Quickly

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

As far as the Ottawa Senators are concerned, the Golden State has lost its shine.

For the first time in four seasons, the Senators closed out a trip through California without even one victory, capped by a horrible 5- 0 loss to the San Jose Sharks at the SAP Center on Saturday night....

What’s going on here? This string of bad hockey isn’t showing any signs of stopping and the Senators are slowly. but surely, taking themselves out of any real possibility of making the National Hockey League playoffs.

Not only did the Senators stretch their winless streak to four games, but they also have just one victory in the past 12 after letting the Sharks skate away with the two points.

What kind of night was it for the Sens?  See below...

Video- You Make The Call San Jose/Florida

from Paul Gackle of the Mercury News,

“The puck’s in the blue paint, and I guess from now on, you have to say, Mr. Goalie, go ahead and freeze it, or else it will be disallowed,” Vlasic said. “The puck’s right there. You jam the puck. It hits his pad. But, of course, he can’t make the play because I put it in before he could freeze it.

“I don’t know what the rules are anymore.”

During a TV timeout, Vlasic could be seen talking emphatically with referee Tom Kowal at the Sharks blue line.

What explanation did the Sharks defenseman receive?

“You can’t push the puck into his pad and into the net,” Vlasic said. “So you have to let the goalie freeze it. From now on, anything in the blue paint should be disallowed.”

Video- A Questionable Penalty Shot And An Elbow From Timo Meier

via Sportsnet's YouTube page,

Why the San Jose Sharks were awarded a penalty shot with such little time in a one sided game on an infraction that was not clear is confusing, so the panel tries to clear up why it happened and talks about lack of a response on the Del Zotto hit.

Videos- Ryan Johansen Hit On Marc-Edouard Vlasic And Joe Pavelski/Johansen Fight

from Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News,

The Sharks’ game against the Predators became testy after Marc-Edouard Vlasic was hit and knocked out of the game by Ryan Johansen in the third period. One fight and a handful of roughing penalties ensued before the Sharks finished off a 4-1 win....

Johansen said he was going after Pavelski after he felt the Sharks captain delivered a questionable hit in the Predators’ zone.

“I actually went at him because he hit me in the same spot, a blind side hit, boarding probably,” Johansen said. “So I just didn’t like the hit. I didn’t think anyone would come after me because it was a clean hit (on Vlasic), just unlucky.”...

Vlasic’s head appeared to make hard contact with the glass and he stayed on the ice on all fours for several moments before he was assisted off. He had 15:55 of ice time up until the time he was injured.

“I hope he’s OK, first of all. I totally thought it was clean. I would never, ever try and hit someone in a bad position,” Johansen said. “I felt like I was just getting body position on him, but I really hope he’s OK because you never want to see anybody go down.”

Patrick Marleau Returns To San Jose Tonight

from Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com,

The tears have been forming for almost two decades.

Patrick Marleau will do everything in his power to keep them from trickling down his cheeks.

Easier said than done.

Marleau will make his highly anticipated hockey homecoming when his Toronto Maple Leafs visit the San Jose Sharks on Monday (10:30 p.m. ET; NBCSCA, SNO, NHL.TV). The 38-year-old forward played the first 19 seasons of his NHL career in San Jose.

Marleau knows the Sharks will have some kind of in-game tribute for him. He doesn't know when it will take place or what it will be. But when that moment does come, with his wife and four sons among the family, friends and thousands of fans at SAP Center, he admits it will be difficult to hold back the emotions.

And the tears.

"I don't know how I'll react when it happens," Marleau said recently, fighting to find the right words. "Hopefully there is someone beside me making jokes or something. Keep things light."
