Resurgent Sharks can win sixth straight on Monday

1 Comment

Less than two weeks ago, PHT published a post titled, “Still waiting for that ‘big bounce-back’ by the Sharks.”

In it, we called out the Sharks for their 18-18-2 record, writing that they “just cannot seem to pull it together.”

The very next day, they smoked the Maple Leafs, 7-0. And they haven’t stopped rolling since. Tonight, they’ll go for their sixth straight win when Ottawa pays a visit.

If you’d like PHT to call out your team, that’ll be $100.

“I think everyone just has the right mindset,” forward Chris Tierney told reporters after Saturday’s 4-3 OT victory over Dallas. “Everyone is positive when we come in here. I think we’re having a lot of good starts at home right now and that’s been a big help. The guys are having fun. We’re just carrying the momentum right now.”

Young Tomas Hertl is feeling especially confident these days. The 22-year-old has three goals and three assists in the five games he’s skated on the top line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski.

“Hopefully more good games and no bad games,” Hertl told CSN Bay Area. “We have five wins in a row, a couple home games. Just keep pushing, we need points.”
