What Sharks can learn in sloppy shootout win vs. lowly Coyotes

“Our game is more to play hard, play small details, be really good in the D-zone,” Hertl said. “We will not beat top teams [playing this way] because they’re more skilled. We just gave up so much. We have to learn from this.”

It sounds like a definite message was delivered — we’ll see how the Sharks respond on Thursday when they welcome the Philadelphia Flyers to SAP Center.
