/blues series wrap up/
- Karlsson; shutting up sharks fans who cried after one game about him. He’s played very well tonight with some great plays in both ends. Interesting “stat” is from Kurz Twitter; “Erik Karlsson’s best game so far. His Corsi is only 22.2, (after 2 periods) though, in the latest example of advanced stats can often be total garbage.” per Kevin Kurz. Easily the sharks best player tonight he looked amazing.
- Ferraro; this kid is developing at a insane pace. If the NHL had a most improved player award (like the NBA); he would have my vote right now. He’s a stud.
- Jones; Very good, something I haven’t said in long time. Very impressive start to the year compared to the past. He’s actually making KEY saves, a lot of times I see a shot and wince as old Jones would allow certain shots that needed to be saved and right now I’m still being surprised by some huge saves. He was the key piece to tonight’s win.
- Kane... I mean man he had a frustrating game. Wasn’t bad in the first couple games but he’s had a tough series here. No excuses he hurt the team tonight. 4 penalties, tied for his career most in a game..
- Bottom 6 finally gets a point/ goal. They played good tonight.
- Leonard is so damn close to putting up multiple points each night, hopefully he’ll start getting some luck. Quiet night for him compared to the last few.
- Special Teams are actually special so far, nice improvements. Need more PP goals (0-7 tonight😬) but they’ve been solid on both.
- Hertls elite no🧢
Sharks played well against a high tier team, hopefully they can build off their mistakes and take this into the next series; because they’ve shown they can play with good teams and beat them but at the same time shown why they were a bottom tier team last year. We are definitely a different team from last though.
