St Louis is another team that has given the Sharks a hard time in the past (except the win against them this season and they are a much improved team since then).
The way they played in the past is not how they play this year and they haven't really changed how they played from that game. They just responded poorly to what happened to Boyle. We will see in the next game but the style they play now is not something that gives the Sharks issues.
Another thing: Sharks are have only a .455 winning percentage in one-goal games, which are often decided by luck. They are 8-1 in games decided by 3+ goals, which is a great indication of how good a team this is. The only loss was to Chicago.
A few of those just off the top if my head were unfortunate. Boston they were unlucky. Buffalo should have been a w. Just those 2 alone would have them at a .600 percentage and they have won there last couple 1 goal games. Another stat is that all there 1 goal games are all shoot out losses except for la which won it on a 4 on 3 in overtime. Which will not be taking place in the playoffs. In 1 goal games that are decided in regulation or overtime. San Jose is 3-2 which is probably a little better indication
