Cassidy Can Continue Personal Winning Streak Against Sharks with Vegas

The Vegas Golden Knights have found their coach and fans of the San Jose Sharks may have cause for concern.

Bruce Cassidy was fired by the Boston Bruins just over a week ago and has already found his next landing spot, with the Golden Knights moving quickly to have him lead the team behind the bench. Vegas, having announced the firing of former Sharks head coach Pete DeBoer last month, add a top-tier coach after missing the playoffs for the first time in the franchise’s first five years.

In his six years with the Bruins, Cassidy did not lose to the San Jose Sharks. His overall record against the Sharks is 9-3-0, however, all three of those losses were his first three games against San Jose when he was head coach of the Capitals. Since Feb. 9, 2017, the latest Golden Knights head coach hasn’t lost against the boys in teal in nine straight! That, by the way, was Cassidy’s debut as Bruins head coach, coincidentally also against the Sharks.

Over the last 15 games between the Vegas and San Jose, the Sharks are 2-11-3, so the addition of Cassidy to the Golden Knights bench may not see that record swing in the Sharks’ favor any time soon.
