Petshark: Talking Stick

Are these recent Sharks' losses nothing more than a slip, a dribble away from being wins? Are the Sharks just a flinch away from team fusion?
There was a spell during last night's game that made me want to cover my eyes, but I couldn't look away either. Okay, yes I could, but I had to put the game on pause and go do chores to stop looking. During those ten minutes or so, the team looked worse than they have in a long time. The errant passes, failures to clear and general happening of anything that could go wrong also emphasized how suddenly the Sharks pulled it together. The recovery made me think "see, they can just kick themselves into gear!"
Boyle, who isn’t afraid to be critical of his team’s effort, said: “I don’t say it too often after a loss, and maybe not so much the first 10 minutes, but after that I thought we were the much better team. It was a very good effort. We had lots of chances that we haven’t had in awhile. There was a couple freaky bounces and things that happened out there, but overall for 50 minutes, I think that was a very good effort.” -CSN Bay Area
