Yes they scored but it was a great shot by Boyle. Why are the Sharks the only team that doesn't seem to understand you should either spread it out or clog up the front?
i think other teams should maybe i don't know start following what the sharks do on the power play, considering the sharks have been a top team on the power play for the past 6 years.

the sharks last season had 7 opportunities on 5-3's, scored on 3 of them for 42% rate of conversion.
2010-11 the sharks had 17 opportunities on 5-3, scored on 7 of them for 41% rate of coversion.
2009-10 the sharks had 10 opportunities on 5-3, scored on 1 of them for a 10% rate of conversion.
2008-09 the sharks had 23 opportunities on 5-3, scored on 8 of them for a 34% rate of conversion.
2007-08 and lower we have no information on 5-3's.
