Jamie's Thought of the Day - 4/27/2013

by Jamie Baker / San Jose Sharks

Day 99. Game 48. Hard to believe but the last day of the regular season is upon us.

What a grind for the players, coaches and trainers - 1 NHL game every 2.06 days. Throw in travel and that is a lot of hockey and an incredibly demanding schedule both mentally and physically.

A short demanding season has been volatile with wild swings for almost every team in the NHL. Here is a snapshot of the roller coaster the Sharks just endured:

The Start - January 20 to February 9

11 Games in 21 days

Overall 7-2-2 (5 ROW's)

Home 5-1-2 (3)

Away 2-1-0 (2)

The Grind - February 11 to March 25

20 Games, 15 of them on the road in 43 days

Overall 7-9-4 (4)

Home 3-0-2 (2)

Away 4-9-2 (2)

The Push - March 27 to April 27

17 Games in 32 days (game 17 tonight vs LA)

Overall 11-4-1 (8) does not include game vs LA

Home 9-1-1 (7)

Road 2-3-0 (1)


The Start and Push were enough to offset the Grind so the Sharks could participate in the next season, the PLAYOFFS!
