With a loss tonight and another against the upstart Kings, JD will have no choice in letting Murray go. If they cant find a replacement I say hire Wamsley as the interim head coach and see how he does.GO BLUES
Heres to hoping the Blues get out of the losing pattern and actually put up some points. I hope that they are a little fired up and come out and play a physical nasty game.
Maybe the only way to beat San Jose - get the puck in deep and pound their dmen.
This is coming from a Shark's fan:
Actually the best way to beat San Jose so far is to burn their defense with team speed either through zone entry or a high tempo cycle along the perimeter. If you go the cycling route San Jose defenders have been known to blow coverage which will eventually get you that high quality opportunity.
In my opinion I wouldn't go the muscle route as the Sharks handle that pretty well. The faster you can physically move around the Shark's defense the better you will do.
I gotta say, I like those forward lines quite a bit. Its subtle, but moving Berglund back to center and Tkachuk to LW, with Winchester instead of Janssen, makes that look like a pretty legitimate line. And the top two lines have looked pretty effective lately (though I still want more bottom line out of them) but the scoring chances are definitely coming.
