Sharks Continue Dominance Over Canadiens At SAP Center

Published

The San Jose Sharks sure love playing the Montreal Canadiens at the SAP Center and they continued their dominance over Montreal with a convincing 5-2 victory on Tuesday.

The win was San Jose’s 11th straight over Montreal at the SAP Center.

“It was important,” Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said.

“We needed a win. I think obviously we didn’t have the start we wanted. We wanted to get a good start here at home and for whatever reason we put ourselves in a spot where we really needed a win tonight to feel good going on the road trip, and we got it done. I think we’re getting a little better every game.”

“It’s a very poor start from our team, from myself, from a lot of individuals,” Montreal forward Max Pacioretty said.

“But who’s going to feel sorry for us? Tomorrow we play another good team [the Los Angeles Kings] with an opportunity to turn this around. So as upset as we are right now, it doesn’t do us any good to feel sorry for ourselves.

“It’s a good time to look in the mirror and see what we’re made of because a lot of people are probably doubting this team right now.”

The Sharks were able to salvage a little bit of their homestand before hitting the road.

“Obviously we didn’t have the homestand we wanted, coming in 1-3,” San Jose’s Joe Pavelski said.

“A chance to leave on a positive note and take a little momentum onto the road. Guys stepped up tonight.”

Logan Couture scored two goals and had two assists, and Pavelski, Tomas Hertl and Joe Thornton scored while Martin Jones made 28 saves for San Jose.

The New York Islanders have placed Andrew Ladd on waivers, according to an official team announcement.

“He’s played the maximum number of conditioning games–five games” Islanders’ general manager Lou Lamoriello said.”He needs to play in games to see exactly where the strength is and where the liabilities are and so forth. So we’ll get him down, he’ll leave today to go up to Belleville and play this weekend at Belleville and Laval.

There’s no timetable. His play and physical fitness will determine that.”

Ladd, who inked a seven-year, $38.5 million contract back in 2016, has not played in a game for the Islanders this season.
