This has to be the most embarrassing moment in Stars history

On Nov. 4, 1998 at Dallas, San Jose recorded a franchise-low nine shots in a game but won 4-0
Remember when they were streaking into the playoffs two years ago? After the Sharks acquired Campbell, they went like 18-1-1 or something like that during the final stretch of the season.

They went roaring into the playoffs and went roaring right out again in the second round. This game means absolutely nothing to the Sharks playoff performance.
I posted this on WTC earlier today:

To all those who think the Sharks need to play near perfection to finish up the season to make or win the SCF, I don’t think that argument is necessarily true. Playing well into the playoffs is important, but to win every game? Not so much. (Although last year’s penguins were on a tear.)

It seems that there isn’t much correlation between SC winners, runner ups and the Sharks every season…

2008-09 Penguins – 14-2-3 (won last 3 going into playoffs; fleury played all but two games in this stretch)
2008-09 Red Wings – 10-7-2 (Two consecutive losses happened twice in this stretch; lost last two games of season)
2008-09 Sharks – 11-8-2 (lost last two games of season)

2007-08 Red Wings – 12-3-1 (lost two games back-to-back in March)
2007-08 Penguins – 11-5-1 (lost last game of season)
2007-08 Sharks – 14-2-3 (didn’t lose in regulation in March; lost last two games of season)

2006-07 Ducks – 11-3-4 (lost last game of season)
2006-07 Senators – 10-3-5
2006-07 Sharks – 13-0-2
