Road Issues For The San Jose Sharks

from Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News,

Less than 24 hours after they were smoked by the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Sharks trailed by two goals less than nine minutes into the first period Sunday and never fully recovered in a 5-1 loss to the Florida Panthers at BB&T Center....

The Sharks are now 0-2-1 on this trip that ends Tuesday in Nashville, and have been outscored 14-5 so far through regulation and overtime.

On road trips of more than one game this season, the Sharks are now 2-7-2.

Add it all up and the Sharks, on a four-game slide, are a pedestrian 15-15-2.

“I think we’re a little too relaxed right now,” Sharks winger Evander Kane said. “A couple games where we got off to bad starts and weren’t able to fight back, and we really didn’t have much fight-back after we got down. That’s really the most disappointing part.”
