The Sharks have 3 of the most important games of the first half of the season coming up now imo.
Starting 2-0 is great for a team that had low public expectations. But now SJ has a real chance to go on a good run.
Ottawa is a great test especially because it’s Tkachuks first game back and if Ottawa does surprise everyone and names him captain before the game, it will be wild regardless. (Also I’m going to the game so let’s****ingo). Then we have the Leafs; an even harder test because the Leafs will be the highest octane offensive to test our goalies and D. If we can get 3-0 and even somehow 4-0, the Sharks than go against a rock solid Bruins team which will be another big test.
If the Sharks then can come away from this road trip 4-1 or 5-0 they go to Nashville before the trip ends. This could lead the Sharks 6-0. If the Sharks have any hopes to make a case for the playoffs; which they do want to, they must go 6-0. Maybe 5-1. But this will be interesting to watch because a hot start will go a long way in this pretty bad Pacific division. If there’s any reason to be excited about how weak the Pacific is; this is the Sharks chance to expose that weakness. Because they want to make the playoffs, and this is a huge stepping stone.
