Boyle still perplexed by blunder in Game 3

NHL.com @NHL

DENVER (AP) -San Jose defenseman Dan Boyle still can't fathom how he managed to send the puck past his own goalie in overtime.

Boyle had a fitful night's rest as he kept seeing the puck twirl into the net.

The only way Boyle might exorcise his demons is if the Sharks rally from their 2-1 deficit and beat the eighth-seeded Avalanche in the best-of-seven series that resumes Tuesday night at the Pepsi Center.

San Jose lost Game 1 at home when the puck deflected off the skate of Sharks defenseman Rob Blake and into the net in the final minute. Devin Setoguchi scored in overtime of Game 2 before Boyle's blunder Sunday night.
