Sharks History

April 18 is a very historic date as the greatest player in National Hockey League history laced up his skates for the final time. In addition to a legend saying goodbye, there was a whole slew of Stanley Cup playoff firsts that happened on this date. The Great One Says Goodbye When the New York Rangers took the ice for their regular-season finale against the Pittsburgh Penguins on April 18, 1999, they were already eliminated from a Stanley Cup playoff berth. The sellout crowd inside of the Madison Square Garden knew the old arena was going to host another historic moment. Wayne Gretzky put on an NHL uniform for the final time in his legendary career on this date. The Rangers held a pregame ceremony to honor the Great One which included a video message from Gordie Howe. He picked up the 2,875th and final point of his career with an assist on the Rangers’ lone goal in a 2-1 overtime loss. Gretzky is the league’s...

Sharks History

April 2 has provided many great moments throughout National Hockey League history. Multiple records were broken by some of the biggest names of the sport. Some of those records still stand today. Coffey Brews a New Record Paul Coffey was one of the greatest offensive defensemen to ever play in the NHL. He averaged over a point per game during his Hall of Fame career with 1531 points in 1409 games over 21 seasons with nine different teams. Ray Bourque is the only defenseman in league history to score more goals and points than Coffey. On April 2, 1986, Coffey broke the record of another Boston Bruins legend when the Edmonton Oilers beat the Vancouver Canucks 8-4. Late in the first period, he scored his 46th goal of the season to tie Bobby Orr’s record for the most goals by a defenseman. He set a new single-season record with another goal early in the 2nd period. No matter what uniform he wore, Coffey excelled. (Photo by Steve Babineau/NHLI via Getty Images) Coffey...

San Jose Sharks

In November, the San Jose Sharks had an 11-4-0 record. Even though it wasn’t the most dominant month in their history, after this streak it seemed like the Sharks were going to turn it around. It didn’t happen. Despite that, looking back at the positives from the 2019-20 season is a fun way to pass the time while the NHL is on pause. Nov. 5 vs. Chicago Blackhawks To start the month, the Sharks had back-to-back home losses to the Winnipeg Jets and Vancouver Canucks. They hit a rough patch after struggling in October, but against the Chicago Blackhawks, you couldn’t tell.  The Sharks came out quick, showing no signs of struggle. During the first period, they outshot the Blackhawks 14-3. However, there was no goal until the second period when Patrick Marleau scored less than two minutes in. They added a shorthanded goal by Evander Kane and another goal in the third by Tomas Hertl. Related: All-Time Best Player From Every NHL Team The Blackhawks replied...
