GOTTA SEE IT: Wilson Passes Torch to Grier in Emotional Appreciation Night Speech

Period 1

5 in: Think Simek overplayed that, didn’t accept as true with Megna, Hawks get a great opportunity.

8 in: Gadjovich shot out of a cannon, does great task protective puck from Murphy. Then makes a play to Karlsson. He can do all 3 of the ones issues often, display excellent ft, offer protection to puck, make the connecting play, he’s going to stay right here.

9 in: Beaut Karlsson outlet cross, he’s proven elite contact up to now this night.

9 left: Couture line been considering some robust forecheck this night. Unlike the Canes, Sharks are hemming the opposition a little bit.

Couture purpose: Karlsson whoa. He’s been terrific this night. Credit the place it’s due.

Period 2

Toews purpose: I’ve appreciated Karlsson this night, however he will get stuck there. Puck-watching on Johnson, Toews sneaks in the back of him.

Lafferty purpose: People will see No. 65 and notice crimson, however he will get 0 lend a hand right here. Sharks can’t stay puck ownership down low in outnumbered scenario, unpleasant.

Lafferty purpose: Both Labanc and Karlsson pass after Dickinson, perhaps think a gassed Couture has Lafferty. He doesn’t. Just unpleasant.

Seems like a delicate team, in as far as one purpose is going in, can’t stem the tide. Common San Jose Sharks theme in those unhealthy years.

4 left: Some protection, in spite of everything. Benning locks sticks with Athanasiou coming down slot, simply in case unhealthy perspective shot spits out rebound.

Another excellent shift from Gadjovich to near length.

Period 3

3 in: Meier must get again to north-south, and he does there. Keep taking pictures!

Ferraro-Karlsson, Vlasic-Benning, Megna-Simek are you D-pairings.

Raddysh purpose: Backbreaker. Similar backhand transfer on breakaway to Toews’s transfer, however to different facet. Time of sport, you want a large prevent too. Haven’t truly had any of the ones from Kahkonen this night.

Dickinson purpose: Hertl chases a puck on the blueline that he shouldn’t, leaving Karlsson to fend with a 2-on-1. Need a prevent in the future too. Irresponsible play from Hertl, regardless that I do know the place it’s coming from, San Jose Sharks down two.
