|VEGAS: LAST SEASON: 51-24-7, 109 points. First place Pacific Division. |
LOST to Washington Capitals in Stanley Cup Final
COACH: Gerard Gallant (second season, eighth NHL season).
ADDED: LW Max Pacioretty, C Paul Stastny, D Nick Holden
LOST: RW James Neal, LW David Perron, D Luca Sbisa
PLAYER TO WATCH: William Karlsson. Before last season, Karlsson's previous career highs were nine goals and 20 points, numbers he reached in 2015-16. Last season, he was the catalyst for the Golden Knights' high-octane offense by finishing with 43 goals and 78 points in the regular season. He agreed to a one-year, $5.25 million extension over the summer and will be looking to prove he's worth every dollar and deserving of a bigger contract next summer.
OUTLOOK: After their run to the Stanley Cup Final, the losses of Neal and Perron meant the Golden Knights would take a significant hit to their offense. But the additions of Stastny and Pacioretty immediately made Vegas a contender again. Shea Theodore ended his holdout, and when fellow-defenseman Nate Schmidt returns from his 20-game suspension in November, the Knights may be favored to win the Western Conference again.
|SAN JOSE: LAST SEASON: 45-27-10, 100 points. Third place in Pacific Division. |
LOST to Vegas Golden Knights in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Peter DeBoer (fourth season, 11th NHL season).
ADDED: D Erik Karlsson, F Antti Suomela, F Rourke Chartier.
LOST: F Chris Tierney, D Dylan DeMelo, F Mikkel Boedker, F Eric Fehr, F Joel Ward, F Jannik Hansen, D Paul Martin.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Karlsson. The Sharks
ADDED the two-time Norris Trophy-winning defenseman on the eve of training camp in a blockbuster move. Karlsson is an elite playmaker and defenseman and should provide a major boost to San Jose on the power play, as well as five-on-five play.
OUTLOOK: Ever since acquiring Joe Thornton in general manager Doug Wilson's first blockbuster trade back in 2005, the Sharks have viewed themselves as Stanley Cup contenders almost every season. That is clearly the case this year after adding Karlsson to a defensive unit that already featured 2016 Norris winner Brent Burns and shut-down defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic. The Sharks are potentially thin at center and will need a healthy season from Thornton at age 39 after two straight years with major knee injuries in order to challenge for the Cup.
|Sharks try to slow red-hot Golden Knights|
The San Jose Sharks head into Monday night's home game with the Vegas Golden Knights just one point behind first place Calgary in the Pacific Division with 10 games remaining.
The Sharks (43-21-8, 94 points), who will be trying to end a two-game losing streak, can clinch a Stanley Cup playoff berth for the 14th time in 15 years with a point against the defending Western Conference champions. But that might be easier said than done considering the way the Golden Knights have been playing since their acquisition of Mark Stone from Ottawa at the trading deadline.
Vegas (40-27-5, 85 points) improved to 8-1-0 since Stone's arrival with a 6-3 home victory over Edmonton on Sunday night. Stone had a goal in the win and has had six points in the last five games, while also playing a key role in tightening up the Golden Knights' defense.
"The team's playing great hockey right now, and that's what we want to do heading into the final stretch," Stone said.
Despite the recent hot spell, Vegas still trails second place San Jose by nine points in the standings, so passing the Sharks for home-ice advantage in the playoffs is still a long shot. But Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant is happy that his team has turned things around from a slump that saw them win just three times over 12 games from Jan. 21 to Feb. 22.
"I feel good about our team," Gallant said. "A couple of weeks ago, we were in a little tailspin, and I really didn't like it a lot. Since the trade deadline, and adding Stone to our group, I feel real confident with our group. We can go into any building and play any team and win."
Besides the addition of Stone, the Golden Knights have also gotten strong goaltending from Marc-Andre Fleury, who has allowed just five goals during a personal six-game win streak, including a pair of shutouts. But Fleury, who had 40 saves in a 2-1 victory at Dallas on Friday night and leads the league in starts (58), wins (35) and shutouts (eight), didn't dress Sunday night with what was called a lower-body injury. The team recalled Maxime Lagace from the Chicago Wolves of the AHL on an emergency basis earlier in the day.
"He's not coming (to San Jose)," Gallant said of Fleury after Sunday night's win. "He's still day-to-day but he's not coming (to San Jose)."
The Sharks will also be without a key player: two-time Norris Trophy winning defenseman Erik Karlsson, who resumed some skating drills on Saturday for the first time since injuring his groin in a Feb. 26 game at Boston.
"Good sign," Sharks coach Pete DeBoer told the San Jose Mercury News. "Out there, no setback. No pain. First step, obviously. We're not close yet."
Karlsson has three goals and 42 assists in 52 games this season. The Sharks still have managed to compile a 14-5-1 record without Karlsson in the lineup.
This is the third of four meetings between the two teams but the first played in San Jose. Behind 33 saves by Fleury and two goals by Max Pacioretty, Vegas won the first one, 6-0, on Nov. 24. San Jose, behind 36 saves by Martin Jones and third-period goals by Melker Karlsson and Joonas Donskoi, pulled out a 3-2 victory on Jan. 10.
