Power Rankings
A loss to the Predator is forgivable considering how much they put into Thursday night against the Kings, a likely first-round preview the Sharks won.
The Sharks have lost four of five but two of those were in a shootout and the others were also one-goal games. They're still fine but are slipping back into a pairing with LA.
The Sharks would be in even better position if they could just stop dropping winnable games at home -- the latest against Florida and Washington. In the middle they beat the Ducks.
Even when they're not at their best lately the Sharks are winning. It's up to six in a row and counting as they return home, where they are 25-4-4.
Dear Ducks: We're coming for you. We're well rested with a surprisingly low number of Olympic players and are just four points behind. Signed, the Sharks.
The Sharks will take two wins in three games and 13 goals in a quick trip to the East but it must sting a little to leave points behind in Buffalo.
It might not sound like much, but the Sharks have closed the Pacific gap behind the Ducks to seven points going into the break, and that's with the offense going quiet of late.
Where did the offense go? In four games this week the Sharks scored a whopping two goals, losing to the Kings, Oilers and Flames yet beating the Blackhawks in a shootout.
Here go the Sharks on one of their streaks again. They haven't lost in more than two weeks, winning their past six games. All but one were one-goal games.
Credit where it's due, the Florida swing hasn't been the easiest trip this season but the Sharks swept through the Sunshine State as well as DC with three straight wins.
Preseason Power Rankings
The Sharks have outscored opponents 8-2 and outshot them 86-45 in just two games. You can't start much better than that.
