It wasn’t just one bad game for the San Jose Sharks on Saturday, a 6-2 drubbing at the hands of the Colorado Avalanche.
San Jose was already getting away from their game on Thursday, a 4-1 loss at Winnipeg.
“Yeah, I think a little of that [happened] against Winnipeg in the second half of the game there,” Bob Boughner admitted after the Colorado game.
Down two goals with nine minutes to go at Winnipeg, the San Jose Sharks started to – literally – look at just one side of the ice.
Brent Burns (88) steps up on a questionable pinch of Evgeny Svechnikov (71) – Burns’s reach is long, but Svechnikov is able to keep it away and finesse the puck past Burns.
