The Playoff Chances For The San Jose Sharks

from Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News,

Entering Saturday’s game against Arizona, the Sharks have 48 points, two behind the second wild card spot and four back of the Calgary Flames for third place in the Pacific Division. They have games in hand over every team in the west, but those only matter if you win.

“I’m not looking at the day-to-day whether we’re in, we’re out, above the line. With the games in hand, it’s not a real number,” Sharks coach Pete DeBoer said. “But what is real is we’re in the middle of things and it’s going to take a big second half from us to get in the playoffs.”

The Sharks play 42 times over the next 85 days. including eight times over the next 13 before the start of the NHL All-Star break starts Jan. 26.

“We’re going to pay the bill for the schedule we had in the first half,” DeBoer said.

Doug Wilson Not Happy With A Broadcast Partner

from Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News,

In a since-deleted Jan. 7 tweet on a Sharks-dedicated account belonging to NBC Sports California, Sharks players Tomas Hertl, Justin Braun and Tim Heed all mentioned Winnipeg when they were asked by someone from the network what city was the worst in the NHL to play in.

Hertl said, “I think it’s Winnipeg cause every time it’s so cold and dark there. I don’t like there.” Braun said, “Winnipeg. Dark. Cold. Hotel is a little questionable. Internet doesn’t work ever.”

The comments, made in September at the team’s annual media day, prior to the start of training camp, also appeared on the network’s Sunday broadcast of the game between the Sharks and the Jets in Winnipeg.

“It’s disappointing that our broadcast partner would put our players in that position. First of all, by even asking that question, then putting it on our broadcast,” Sharks general manager Doug Wilson told this newspaper on Tuesday. “That was a question that was one of 30 that were asked earlier in the year. To me, it was an inappropriate question that should not have been asked. Whether it was an attempt at humor, it was not appropriate.”

Losing Streak Hits Five For The Montreal Canadiens After A 4-1 Loss To The San Jose Sharks

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

They lost because they didn’t compete hard enough.

Defenceman Jeff Petry said the team’s shortcomings were discussed in a players-only meeting after the loss.

“Guys in here, we had a little talk,” Petry said. “Obviously, we weren’t good enough tonight and we had to clear some things up.”

When asked what had to change, Petry said: “I think our compete level … definitely tonight wasn’t good enough. It just seems like we’re playing an easy game right now, making it easy on opponents. I don’t know if it’s just mental lapses from our structure or just wanting to do our own thing, but it’s definitely not working and it’s becoming more and more apparent.”

The Canadiens have scored only four goals in their five-game skid and Tuesday’s goal came on a 5-on-3 power play.
