San Jose Sharks

San Jose Sharks Number One In The NHL

sharksfan Early on we were a little concerned about the Sharks record, as impressive as it was it came at the expense of mostly winless teams.

But then the Pittsburgh Penguins came to town. After them were the defending Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings. Next up were the Colorado Avalanche and tonight were the Minnesota Wild. The result - 4 more wins. Different caliber competition, same results.

The records of those 4 teams at the time they played the Sharks:

Pittsburgh Penguins 5-2-2
Detroit Red Wings 7-1-2
Colorado Avalanche 5-5-0
Minnesota Wild 7-2-1

Whereas their early 6-1 record came against teams with a combined record of 1-12-3, The Sharks last 4 wins came against opponents with a combined record of 24-10-5. In those 4 games the Sharks out shot their opponents 145-98 winning by a goal total of 14-7.

And at the end of the day, the Sharks 22 points is good enough to lead the NHL. Does anyone know when the last time the Sharks led the league in points was?
