Sharks coach still regrets Game 2 breakdown

A lot happened since the Sharks went down 2-0 in their second-round series against the Kings thanks to a stunning pair of late Los Angeles goals – including some similar breaks for San Jose – and when they lost in Game 7 on Tuesday.

Even so, Sharks head coach Todd McLellan told reporters such as LA Kings Insider’s Jon Rosen that he regrets that Game 2 defeat.

“We’d love to go back and play Game 2 over again,” McLellan said.

Pass it off as “moral victories” if you’d like, but the Sharks pushed their in-state rivals to the brink in a tightly matched series. Maybe that’s why their head coach is having trouble letting that tough loss go.

        were we not watching the same game? or do you still have rose tinted spectacles on? i wanted the sharks to win, but holy crap did they get out coached and out defended. sorry not sorry, nice recycled ASCII btw, creative

        Wow, that drawing says more than any words ever could. And the dedication? Forget about it. That’s the best retort I have ever seen, uh … dot-dashed out on the inter-tubes. Tell me your real name, sir, so that I may start a non-profit to fund your exploits and to spread word of your greatness!

        Ya tard.

    You should regret all loses.

    This is not new. You played 7 games.

    Your season is over.

    Deal with it.

    Kings lost in 6 to SJ 2 yrs ago without Kopitar.

    This yr is over for you.

    Time for a new head coach.

      I clicked on this link to add the following; I think we are going to see a coaching change. Either they let McL go, or he decides to offer his services elsewhere. So, I agree that we’re going to see a new coach in SJ next year. BTW, do you know whether or not his contract goes beyond this year?
