Gameday Blog: Sharks vs. Wild 12/10

by Ann Frazier & Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every gameday. This blog will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets, so be sure to check back as the day goes on.

Read the latest on the San Jose Sharks from the Mercury News.

After a dominating 5-0 win over the Ottawa Senators last night, including putting 50 shots on goal, the Sharks are back in action tonight at the Tank to take on the Minnesota Wild for the first time this season.

While the Sharks have recently been criticized by some for not scoring a lot of goals, that reputation has been turned on its head the past two games. The Sharks have scored 5 goals in each of their past two contests, including 9 straight. On Thursday the goals came all through special teams play (or 3-on-3 overtime), while last night's game saw the team score three 5-on-5 goals and two power play goals.

There is some concern after Dylan DeMelo left last night's game after getting butt-ended in the face by Alex Burrows. There was no update on his status after the game, so it could be a sign that Joakim Ryan comes back into the lineup.

Gameday Blog: Sharks vs. Senators 12/9

Your source for news for San Jose Sharks gameday

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every gameday. This blog will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets, so be sure to check back as the day goes on.

After completing an epic comeback for arguably the biggest win of the season, the Sharks now host the Ottawa Senators for the second game of their three game homestand. This is also the sixth game in a row the Sharks face an opponent from the Eastern Conference, a streak that will be broken tomorrow night against the Wild.

While the Sharks are coming off a dramatic overtime win, the Senators are coming off of a dramatic overtime loss to the Los Angeles Kings. Down 3-2 in the third, the Senators managed to tie the game with 10 seconds left to send it to overtime, only to fall in the extra frame. 

Tonight the Sharks get Brenden Dillon back from his one game suspension, meaning that one defenseman (or - less likely - a forward) will be scratched tonight. The final decision will likely be announced at morning skate, so be sure to check back in for more news later in the day.

Power Rankings: Comeback Celebrations

Ranking the celebrations from last night's overtime win

by Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

Last night's win over the Carolina Hurricanes wasn't written on the wall from the start. After the Sharks went down 3-0 in the first period, it was hard to imagine a quick bounce back. The beauty of the early deficit though, was that the Sharks set the stage for an epic comeback, and that's exactly what they did, celebrations included. 

So of course, we decided to rank them.

On the board!

The first Sharks goal last night came from what was probably one fo the best plays- on a short-handed breakaway. With such a beauty of a pass and perfect execution you would expect a bigger celebration. A very introverted celly- but relative to the game's current situation.

by San Jose Sharks @SanJoseSharks / sjsharks.com

SAN JOSE- San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has reassigned Forward Danny O'Regan (@DannyORegan15) to the San Jose Barracuda (@sjbarracuda), the team's top development affiliate in the American Hockey League.

In eight games with the Sharks, O'Regan posted four assists and five shots on goal. His stint with the Sharks was highlighted by a two assist night against Tampa Bay on December 2.

At the time of his recall, O'Regan led all Barracuda skaters in points (12) and goals (6), ranked T-3rd in assists (6) and 2nd in shots on goal (29) in 12 games played.

He was named the 2017 Dudley "Red" Garrett Memorial Award winner as the AHL's Rookie of the Year last season after pacing all AHL rookies in points (58 in 63 GP).

The five-foot-ten, 180-pound native of Berlin, Germany, was originally selected by San Jose in the fifth round (138th overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft.

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every gameday. This blog will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets, so be sure to check back as the day goes on.

The Sharks have returned from the East Coast after a decidedly "average" road trip, going 2-2-0. But they haven't completely escaped the Eastern Conference; their next two games see the Sharks hosting two Eastern foes. First up are the Carolina Hurricanes.

On the road trip, the Sharks scored eight goals in four games - two goals per game, which is under their 2.5 goals per game average for the rest of the season. More of a concern is that the team allowed 9 goals in the past two games. For a club built on their defense and goaltending, that's an aspect of road trip that needs to stay on that road trip.

This season, the Hurricanes have thus far shown improvement from their status last season, particularly in puck possession metrics - they lead the league in SAT% and rank 4th in USAT%. The Sharks, who are also in the top five in both metrics, will have to try to out-possess a team that plays a similar puck possession style.

Inside the Cage: Timo Time

by Ross McKeon @rossmckeon / sjsharks.com

A player drafted in the top 10 carries expectations in his hockey bag right along with gloves, skates and other hockey gear. Everywhere he goes they go, too.

Timo Meier is learning that fact the hard way while living in these demanding, we-want-it-all-yesterday times. Funny thing, though. Those expectations aren't only felt from the outside. The Sharks first-round pick (9th overall) in 2015 has them of himself as well.

"I have high expectations for myself," Meier said. "I think that's the most pressure. I want to work hard and have success. But I want to play for the team. Being a high pick, it doesn't really matter once you're in here. You want to earn your spot if you're a first-round pick or a seventh-round pick. I want to go out there and compete."
