The Sharks may be without captain Joe Thornton for Game 5 on Tuesday after he was knocked out of today’s Game 4 loss by Raffi Torres after a wicked hit in the third period.

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.

One of the biggest stories of the playoffs has been Joe Thornton’s supposed transformation into a true playoff performer. Yet if you look at his numbers with San Jose, the change hasn’t been as drastic as many believe.

It might be the day of rapture, but we’re soldiering ahead and giving you five thoughts on last night’s Game 3 from the Western Conference finals highlighting Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton, and Kevin Bieksa among others.

Vancouver dominated in Game 2 earning a 7-3 win over a Sharks team that looked slow, frustrated, and dumb all at once.
May 17, 2011, 9:26 PM EDT
It might seem odd that Joe Thornton asked Ryan Kesler to drop the gloves during the first puck drop of Game 1, but this post reveals that Jumbo Joe has done that before.

We’ve got some thoughts on sagging third period efforts, diving, and the Sedins getting the breakout game they needed right off the bat.
May 15, 2011, 11:30 PM EDT
The Canucks wore down the Sharks in the third period to take a 3-2 win and 1-0 series lead. This post recaps that exciting game.
May 15, 2011, 7:25 PM EDT
With the Western Conference finals kicking off tonight featuring a pair of teams with players that have a lot to prove, there are five that have a lot more pressure to win than the others.

While we’re in the predicting mood, PHT takes a look at what we think shakes loose in the Western Conference finals between Vancouver and San Jose.

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
A classic series ends in a classic Game 7 that sees the Sharks hang on to beat the Red Wings and move on to the Western Conference finals.
May 12, 2011, 2:20 PM EDT
Some of the game’s greatest (and least expected) players came up big in Game 7s. Who might do so for Detroit or San Jose tonight?
May 3, 2011, 12:45 AM EDT
Snow-gate? Apparently so as the discussion about the Sharks crashing Jimmy Howard’s net and snowing his face is bringing some drama to what’s been a Sharks-dominated series.
May 1, 2011, 7:32 PM EDT
Niclas Wallin was Game 2′s surprise hero of the day as his sneaky shot proved to be the game-winner on a day that saw goaltending dominate the highlights.
May 1, 2011, 12:55 PM EDT
Game 2 can be pivotal in a series and the Capitals and Red Wings find themselves hoping to make sure they don’t head into Game 3 in an 0-2 hole.

Apr 27, 2011, 2:40 PM EDT
With the Western Conference semifinal rematch from last season between San Jose and Detroit, can we expect that this one will live more up to the hype? You better believe it. How do you think it will turn out though?
Apr 26, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT
Joe Thornton in the clutch? You better believe it. Also, the Canucks are on the doorstep of the asylum, Pittsburgh very well might be in trouble, and a bit about how Jamie McGinn was almost the goat and Ryan Malone the secret weapon.
