Sharks Finish Dissapointing New York Weekend

October 20, 2015

By: Sean Vernon Follow @sean_of_basta The Sharks dropped two of their three road games last weekend as they learned that other teams can score too.

By Chris Loveland That’s right, these Sharks are making the playoffs. Book it. Well maybe don’t book it, but as a Sharks fan since the days of Mike Ricci and Owen Nolan, I’m not used to seeing this team miss the playoffs. With the NHL playoffs all you have to do is make it, and then its anybody’s cup. Every year I ask myself, “Why can’t it be us?” While the Sharks…
