I dunno whether it was because the Bruins were especially tired from the night before, but Man, San Jose looked really good!
They skate like the beejeesus and forecheck relentlessly
I thought their Powerplay looked kinda innovative - something the B's might look at trying;
One sequence saw them move the puck around very quickly, using only quick one-touches, never holding the puck on the blades of their sticks, creating triangles throughout the offensive zone. In one instance they must have negotiated 6 quick touches between themselves and forcing the Bruins to really chase and run around. They moved the puck like soccer players do, or like basketball players move the ball around the key.
"Nothing moves faster than the puck."
SJ are very good. I could see them making the final. Logan is quietly taking over that team. Hes amazing.
They are good, so far, and have been picked over the last 8 years by numerous media type's and publications to win the Cup or at least make the final. They seem to have it all and D.Wilson over the years has added different pieces trying to get them over the hump but to no avail. We'll see, but as has been mentioned, its a long way till june. The Sharks could just be one of those franchises that can never match the hype.
Or like detroit keep the core and finally pull it all together. Stevie Y was almost traded numerous times. SJ def seems like a weak point. But they are bold in making deals. I like their team.
