GLENDALE, Ariz. — There was a lot to be excited about with the San Jose Sharks’ 4-3 shootout victory over the Arizona.
And then, there was Erik Karlsson’s slow start. Yes, Karlsson played a game-leading 32 minutes, but it wasn’t his finest (half) hour, that’s for sure.

Also, throughout training camp, perhaps Bob Boughner’s most-used word to describe what he was trying to incorporate into the San Jose Sharks attack was “speed”. Our SPORTLOGiQ Stat of the Game suggests that the Sharks are on the right track.
Finally, we broke down Rocky Thompson’s immediate effect on the power play.
That’s how an NHL scout described Karlsson’s skating yesterday.
