Good thing the Sharks brought Thomas Greiss back as an insurance policy. With Antero Niittymaki out and Antti Niemi unable to return for opening night, Greiss will be the man between the pipes for opening night.

Once again, the Sharks will battle among the league’s elite as they try to take the next step in their development. Back-to-back appearances in the Western Conference final have set the bar fairly high in the Bay Area; and they have a team that has the chance to fulfill the lofty expectations.
Sep 22, 2011, 7:35 PM EDT
Antero Niittymaki is going to miss the next 12 weeks of play. Now is the time for Thomas Greiss to get serious as both Niittymaki and Antti Niemi may not be ready for the season opener.
Sep 22, 2011, 1:06 PM EDT
The Sharks aren’t worried about Antti Niemi’s health from a big picture standpoint, but the Finnish netminder could miss the team’s regular season opener on Oct. 8.
Sep 15, 2011, 7:58 PM EDT
The Sharks released injury updates on Martin Havlat, Antti Niemi, and Antero Niittymaki today. Can someone please tell them that the season hasn’t started yet?

It might seem like the Canucks are getting all the bounces, but this post shows that they’ve gone both ways in their playoff run. That being said, they’ve received more breaks lately … so will that trend continue during Game 3 in Boston?

May 22, 2011, 6:57 PM EDT
The Sharks and Canucks switched roles from Game 3 to Game 4, as special teams fueled Vancouver’s 4-2 win. San Jose finds themselves down 3-1 in the series with their captain Joe Thornton’s health in question.
May 22, 2011, 5:13 PM EDT
The story of the first period revolved around Vancouver’s lack of discipline and San Jose’s inability to capitalize on their PP chances. The second period offered a stark contrast: the Sharks coughed up bad mistakes and the Canucks made them pay dearly, scoring three 5-on-3 goals in two stunning minutes.
May 22, 2011, 4:15 PM EDT
The Canucks survived three penalties in the first period, but will give the Sharks another two minute man advantage to start the second. This post recaps the ups and downs of a scoreless opening frame.

May 19, 2011, 1:04 AM EDT
Vancouver dominated in Game 2 earning a 7-3 win over a Sharks team that looked slow, frustrated, and dumb all at once.

Last night’s Game 7 gave us more than a few thoughts about what’s going on including takes on Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton, Antti Niemi, and Jimmy Howard.
May 13, 2011, 1:45 AM EDT
Now that we’re down to the Conference finals in the East and West, we want to know… Who do you have winning it all now?
May 13, 2011, 1:21 AM EDT
