“We spent a lot of time talking about the last game here. Even the Arizona games.”
By last game, San Jose Sharks head coach Bob Boughner was referring to that mess of a 5-on-5 performance in Monday’s 5-4 loss to St. Louis.
The Sharks were able to right the ship defensively in yesterday’s 2-1 shootout victory, allowing just four shots in the third period. But it wasn’t just any win.
Boughner acknowledged, “I think this game is one of those games that we’ll take and often refer to, our third period especially.”
What was so special about this particular tilt?
Let’s look at how San Jose went from “easy to play against” on Monday to “hard to play against” on Wednesday.
