~~Blood in the Water (Reboot)~~ The Story of the San Jose Sharks...

A/N: I had to restart this project after messing up the first one.



Sharks set sights on Stanley Cup Championship..

After early exit, San Jose is ready to bounce back in a loaded Western Conference....



September 14, 2018..




SAN JOSE- The 2017-2018 NHL Season saw a change in the landscape when the Expansion Vegas Golden Knights took the League by storm. Vegas dominated everybody in their inaugural Season and made a run to the Stanley Cup Finals knocking out the Los Angeles Kings in a clean 4 Game sweep. In the Second Round Vegas breezed by San Jose in Six Games to make the Western Conference Finals where they grounded the Winnipeg Jets in Five Games. Vegas was dominated in the Stanley Cup Finals by the red hot Washington Capitals.

For the San Jose Sharks, 2018-2019 will be a Season of redemption and a tough one at that. Throughout the years the Western Conference has been stacked from top to bottom guaranteeing any Franchise to reach the top of the Divisions to be in a dogfight from start to finish.

The 2015-2016 Sharks had their own Cinderella Story under new Head Coach Peter DeBoer as they embarked on a improbable Playoff Run that saw the Sharks reach the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in Franchise History. San Jose got past their hated Rivals, the Los Angeles Kings in 5 Games erasing the painful memory of blowing a 3-0 Series lead in 2014. In the Second Round the Sharks outlasted the Nashville Predators in 7 before clinching their first ever trip to the Finals after a Game Six victory at home over the St. Louis Blues.

But the "Fairy Tale" Ending wasn't mean to be as the clock struck midnight on the Sharks with a Game 6 loss to Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

But what happened next was a nightmare.

The Sharks didn't even make it out of the first Round of the Playoffs after being blown off the Ice in Six Games by the younger faster Edmonton Oilers led by arguably the best Player in the league today, Connor McDavid.

The loss to the Oilers in the First Round showed that the San Jose Sharks needed some youth and speed of their own. It also didn't help that Edmonton was Coached by Todd McLellan. The man who spent so many years behind the bench in Northern California for the Sharks.

With the League changing in how the Game is played it's obvious that the San Jose Sharks will need to adjust. After being blown off the ice thanks to the speedy Penguins and Oilers, and being manhandled by the Vegas Golden Knights, San Jose is in need of dire change.

But it won't be easy in a heavy loaded Western Conference. Pacific Division Rivals, Los Angeles, Anaheim have been making Playoff runs of their own. Vegas is clearly the Team to beat in the Western. Arizona Coyotes have proven to play spoiler, and Canadian Teams like Edmonton and Calgary have also made some noise.

Then in the Central Division we can't forget about the Chicago Blackhawks who had a small Dynasty in the beginning of the 2010's winning 3 Stanley Cups. The Minnesota Wild should be a solid foe for anyone in the Playoffs. Colorado, Winnipeg, and Nashville are all very good entering the Season as well.

Aging Veterans like Joe Pavelski, Joe Thornton, and Brent Burns are in the midst of their Careers might have limited time in getting to dance with Lord Stanley. Now with the new Season among us, San Jose will look to set their sights on something that's eluded them since 1991.

A Stanley Cup Championship...

San Jose Sharks kick off new Campaign with Division Rival Anaheim Ducks...




PREVIEW




San Jose, CA- It's a brand new year across the National Hockey League. The San Jose Sharks are set to meet their Division foes the Anaheim Ducks. The Sharks swept the Ducks in the first round of the Playoffs back in April before losing to the Golden Knights.

"It's a new year and a lot of times you use what happened to you the previous season as motivation. We know with how we swept them in the Playoffs they'll come out fast on us." Sharks Head Coach Peter DeBoer stated.

"We had a solid year last year from what happened to us early and how we made the playoffs." Ducks Captain Ryan Getzlaf stated.

Ducks Head Coach Randy Carlyle knows the task at hand for his crew.

"San Jose is a really great team. They hit you hard, play fast, and come out swinging." Carlyle stated.

The Ducks have Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry from that 2007 Stanley Cup Team.

But gone are the days of the Ducks dominating the Pacific Division.

Last year the Ducks had their 5 year streak of Pacific Division Champions snapped.

It's a new day.

A new era.

A new Season.

When the puck drops, the Pacific Division Rivals will be at each other's throats.

Kane's Hat Trick not enough, DUCKS spoil SHARKS opener with 8-4 Victory...





RECAP





San Jose, CA- The Anaheim Ducks(1-0) spoiled the San Jose Sharks(0-1) home opener tonight and did so with authority.

A 8-4 Victory over their Pacific Rivals inside the SAP Center in San Jose, California.

"We wanted to come here and get that first win out of the way. We know how good San Jose is so for us to come in here and get a win was important for us." Ducks Head Coach Randy Carlyle said.

San Jose swept Anaheim in the first round of the Playoffs last year.

"That's irrelevant. We're in a new season." Ducks Corey Perry stated.

Sharks Goaltender Martin Jones allowed all 8 Goals as San Jose(0-1) tried to battle.

"We battled hard with him in net. We need to clean up our mistakes so we're not leaving Jonesy by himself." Sharks Head Coach Peter DeBoer said.

Despite allowing 8 Goals, Jones turned away 34 shots as he did his best against a stingy Ducks squad.

In the net for Anaheim(1-0) was Ryan Miller who turned away 47 Shots by the desperate San Jose Sharks.

"We got desperate. You make mistakes when you're desperate." Sharks Winger Evander Kane stated.

His Hat Trick wasn't enough for the win. Rookie Tyler Adams got his first Career Goal as the Fins lost 8-4.

The Sharks will look to get past this as they prepare for a long 5 Game trip on the East Coast with a stop down south against their hated rivals.

The Los Angeles Kings.

LOS ANGELES KINGS: Drew Doughty "We don't like San Jose."


10/5/18


Kevin Kurz




The Los Angeles Kings are set to open up their 2018-2019 campaign against a hated rival, the San Jose Sharks.

Kings Defenseman Drew Doughty is known for taking shots at the Sharks over the years as the two clubs have serious history.

"We don't like San Jose. There's bad blood there and I don't like them. That's a Team that I have no respect for. The Players sure. But in terms of rivalries, San Jose is probably our biggest." Doughty stated in an interview.

The LA Kings beat the Sharks in Game 7 back in 2013 in the second round and Los Angeles would become the 4th Team in NHL History to come back from a 3-0 Series defecit.

San Jose humiliated the Kings at series' start, beating them 6-3 and 7-2 before eking out a 4-3 OT victory in Game 3. But the Kings fairly cruised in the remaining games, never winning by less than three and taking Game 7 by a 5-1 count.

Goaltender Jonathan Quick was the difference-maker, allowing two goals over the final three contests. Center Anze Kopitar exploded for four goals and six assists on the series, while playoff reliable Justin Williams also scored four times.

"There's history there between us. We don't like each other it's simple as that." Doughty added.

San Jose did get a little taste of payback in 2016 however when the Sharks beat the Kings in 5 Games in the first round.

Tonight the Kings host the Sharks in their opener at Staples Center.

San Jose lost to Anaheim 8-4 on Wednesday Night.

SHARKS kick off road trip with a heated bout against KINGS...



PREVIEW




LOS ANGELES- After a 8-4 loss on Opening Night Wednesday to the Anaheim Ducks, The San Jose Sharks are kicking off a 5 Game road trip with a stop in the City of Angels against another Pacific Division Rival, the Los Angeles Kings.

And the two Hockey clubs have brutal history.

"We don't like each other. It's that simple." Kings Defenseman Drew Doughty stated.

Drew is no stranger to voicing his opinions. The Pacific Rivals have bad blood.

Los Angeles beat San Jose in Game 7 back in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Who could forget the 2014 Playoffs when the Sharks blew a 3-0 Series lead and allowed L.A to come back and win Game 7.

And the Kings trash talked their whole way through San Jose.

But San Jose did get a little payback in the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs where the Sharks beat the Kings in 5 Games exercising the demons enroute to the Franchise's first appearence in the Stanley Cup.

But tonight the two will write another chapter in their rivalry. Joe Pavelski, Joe Thornton, Tomas Hertl, Logan Couture and the list goes on will look to upset the Kings.

But the Kings have star talent from those epic clashes in the Playoffs with San Jose, Jonathan Quick, Dustin Brown, Drew Doughty, Anze Kopitar, the list goes on.

It looks to be another epic Sharks-Kings clash when the puck drops inside the Staples Center.

KINGS beat SHARKS 3-1 in home opener...





RECAP





Los Angeles, CA- Jonathan Quick turned away 38 shots, Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty, and Ilya Kovalchuk all scored as the Los Angeles Kings(1-0) beat the San Jose Sharks(0-2) Friday Night 3-1 inside the Staples Center.

Kings Goalie Jonathan Quick showed once again why he's one of the best in the Game as he denied 38 shots by the Sharks.

San Jose(0-2) continues to struggle as Evander Kane is the only Shark to score Goals in the first 2 Games.

His hat trick on opening night against the Anaheim Ducks wasn't enough as the Sharks lost on home ice.

"We're just not off to a good start. We're not scoring goals and when you don't score you lose. We have to get out of this little funk." Sharks Captain Joe Pavelski said.

The Sharks attacked the Kings zone but Jonathan Quick denied 38 shots after allowing a Evander Kane Goal that cut the deficit 2-1 in favor of the Kings to start the second period.

"He's one of the best between the pipes. You're not gonna beat him very often." Sharks Head Coach Pete Deboer said.

The Kings-Sharks rivalry took another bloody turn from the opening puck drop as the clubs dropped gloves right off the bat.

"We don't like them. We have to much history with them and we don't like them." Kings Defenseman Drew Doughty stated.

His slapshot in the first period put the Kings up 1-0 as Martin Jones struggled against the Kings attack.

"Yeah we're Pacific rivals and there's history between the two of us but San Jose is a very good Hockey Team. We'll enjoy the win tonight but we can't overlook them as the Season goes on." Kings Captain Dustin Brown stated.

Re: ~~Blood in the Water (Reboot)~~ The Story of the San Jose Sharks...

I haven't updated this cause lately I been struggling with sliders and realism. But last night I played a few games with a set I'm getting pretty comfortable with. I had a epic game with the Rangers where they kept tying before winning. I had a 6-2 victory over the Devils and a OT loss to Buffalo.

Damn you Jack Eichel! lol

Right now San Jose sits at 2-4-1 going into towards end of October.

I will be posting results here soon
