from David Pollak of Working The Corners,
It was an epic failure. And nobody in the Sharks locker room treated it as anything but after a 5-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings that put the Sharks on an inverted pedestal as one of only four teams to win the first three games of a seven-game series and still not advance.
Dissecting how they lost the game isn’t really important, but it was the same problem they had in the three shots at clinching before this one. Their top players once again were not on the scoresheet as San Jose only mustered two goals in the final three losses. Their power play wasted six opportunities; their penalty kill gave up a goal.
What’s most important is what comes next and at this point, who knows?
So we’ll have to settle for a look at how the Sharks reacted to ending up on, as Brad Stuart and others have put it, the wrong side of history.
continued and watch the handshake line below...
