Four things Sharks did to upset Flames in surprising win


The San Jose Sharks were on the ropes.

In the second period, the Calgary Flames outshot them 19-8. Calgary basically camped out in front of Adin Hill: According to SPORTLOGiQ, the Flames enjoyed a 12-4 slot shots on net advantage, all situations.

It was Hill, turning back 18 of 19 shots in the middle frame, who kept the game 1-1.

It looked, however, like it was just a matter of time before Calgary broke through.

But something happened on the way to the Flames’ victory lap: The San Jose Sharks re-discovered their game to kick off the third period.

“We had three or four good shifts in a row and then got a lucky bounce on my goal,” Logan Couture said of his eventual game-winner.

San Jose would pull out a surprise 4-1 decision.
