Scouting the Sharks - LA Kings Insider

The San Jose Sharks certainly aren’t having problems scoring goals these days. The Sharks have won four consecutive games by a combined margin of 20-11 and have scored at least three regulation/overtime goals in seven of their last eight games.

As noted earlier, the Sharks have been clicking on the power play, and they have also been disciplined, as they have had to kill only four power plays in their last three games.
