San Jose Is Hot And Hurt

While it is hard to put too much stock into the meaning of a streak in professional sports, it is hard not to notice them when they happen despite trying circumstances.  The San Jose Sharks have won their last six straight games.  That is a solid run from a good team.  It is all the more impressive because they are missing as many core players to injury as any team in the NHL.  Logan Couture, Martin Havlat, Scott Hannan and rookie of the year candidate Tomas Hertl have all been hurt for this streak.  Adam Burish and Raffi Torres are also hurt, but they fall below the core player level.  I think this is strong evidence that the San Jose Sharks are a very good team.  If they can be healthy, they have to be considered a Stanley Cup contender.
