Can the Sharks solve Philipp Grubauer? That's the question that looms over Game 5 of San Jose's Stanley Cup playoff second-round series with the Colorado Avalanche.
The Avs netminder shut out the Sharks in a 3-0 win in Game 4, as Colorado tied the best-of-seven series at two apiece.
The Sharks scored at least three goals on Grubauer in the first three games of the series, but they couldn't beat the German goaltender in Game 4. He faced 32 shots that night, but he saw eight fewer high-danger chances (nine) in all situations than San Jose goalie Martin Jones, according to Natural Stat Trick.
They want to challenge Grubauer more, but the Sharks won't be able to take a 3-2 series lead without limiting the chances Jones faces.
