Sharks' season once again ends in conference final @NHL

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - For a franchise that has endured more than its share of playoff disappointments, the end to this season for the San Jose Sharks might rank right at the top.

A game-tying goal after a questionable call in the closing seconds of regulation, several prime scoring chances in overtime turned aside by a goalie at the top of his game, and a fluky bounce that led to a season-ending goal in double overtime.

It all added up to a second straight season that ended one step short of the team's first appearance in the Stanley Cup final as San Jose lost 3-2 to the Vancouver Canucks in Game 5 of the Western Conference final.

Now the Sharks head into another offseason wondering what it will take to get this supremely talented team past the conference final hurdle.
