Is it just me, or are they always down multiple players when we play them in San Jose? I mean always top players too.

GG folks just wanted to say I'm real impressed with your team and it's scary to think that the best player in the nhl is missing from it..

Why do people get pissed off after every loss? It's a ****ing 82 game season. It's going to happen. It's not like they just flat out gave the Sharks the game. The Sharks earned it.

Just how Disco Dan has coached them...get 1-2 goals lead and sit back, bore us fans to death, let the other team get momentum.

And thank you Adams, that's been very.

The blown 3rd period leads sting, good opponents and missing stars notwithstanding. If we were good enough to get the leads, we should be able to find a way to keep them.

Fun game to watch, but a frustrating end, no doubt.

How can you beat a team down like that so much and still lose? That third goal should not have happened.

Malkin and Sullivan in OT should not have happened.

Dupuis in the shootout should not have happened.

Blowing that 3-1 lead should not have happened.

Ugh...great game...bad outcome.

I think it's less about the loss and more about the blown 2-goal lead going into the third. For a team that's supposed to be built around defense, that is a bit troubling that we blow so many 2-goal leads (not just tonight's game). Even in games we still hang on to win, we seem to make things a lot more difficult on ourselves by not being able to completely shut down the opposition when we've got a lead (ie. Vancouver and Calgary games).

Neal and Sully are both good shootout players, what is Bylsma thinking? he never plays them now.

The number of times we've lost these games with leads in the third is VASTLY incommensurate with the number of times we've won these games whilst being the team behind. We've come back from a third period deficit to win once in the last, what 12 months? Yet how many times have we surrendered leads and lost?

I'm not ever going to be satisfied with that.

We don't match up well against the Sharks without Staal and Sid in the lineup. That's just a fact, and it bit us tonight. Their size was a real factor and we didn't have Staal's size and Sid's skill to matchup with it. Their cycling game had us at their mercy.

Other than that one game this season, when is the last time we did not blow a 2 goal lead going into the third? That shouldn't happen, especially to a team with our caliber of D, G, and coaching. Frustrating.

What's up with Dupuis shooting in SO. What happened to Neal? At least Sullivan.

90% of the time I'd be right with you guys. This one is not one of them. We were on the road and the crowd was really into it during the third. The Sharks upped their game. I've seen this a million times across the league in my 26 years of existence.

Trust me... I'll flip out when they blow one. This really isn't one of those times.

It doesn't even have to be a 2 goal lead. I know teams lose here and there and we are in good shape in terms of our stats. But let's face it, we need to do something about these blown 3rd periods. We do NOT pay these guys millions of dollars to play 40 minutes of hockey. They never fail to play at least 1 sloppy period of hockey, it never fails!

And I agree, we deserved this loss, especially because of our head coach's stupidity. I love Bylsma, don't get me wrong, but he needs to coach this team a lot better and for crying out loud, like other people have said, we have Neal and Sullivan, let's not forget about Kunitz and Niskanen who has shown some nice shootout moves, why go with Dupuis? Stupid, absolutely stupid and there is no excuse for that.

With Staal out and our D banged up we have some serious problems. We aren't shutting down their top lines nearly as well as we used to.

I just laughed when i seen Dupuis was taking the 3rd shot.

Like they put stone hands out there instead of Neal or Sully.
