A game like this is why I don't think this is a bad team, just a team finding its legs. They did a much better job cycling the puck, players were in position better, and getting it to the front for chances. Just looked like a more cohesive team that worked all game long for their chances, got "Secondary" scoring when Gaborik was held off the board, etc.
Though I have to say, teh Sharks gave the Rangers some space along the boards which helped. Rangers have struggled a bit when teams really pressure the puck hard. But, they also were winning more board battles and better positioned, so I think that also helped a lot.
Gotta keep playing like that, PP has been surprisingly effective lately
It's easy to see why San Jose always disappoints in the playoffs.
I can't believe McLellan made Thornton captain. An atrocious leader who takes potshots at other teams after a loss instead of giving them credit. He should really receive a lot of flack for what he said.
Joe Thorton is a bad leader because he fails to show up and lacks intensity. I have never heard him call out another team before this.
