Throwing out a blowout loss in the second-round series opener [url=]Geoff Swaim Jersey[/url] , the San Jose Sharks believe they’re getting closer to playing the way they want.

With that mindset, a breakthrough in Game 4 against the Vegas Golden Knights on Wednesday night would change things dramatically.

After splitting the first two games in Las Vegas, the Golden Knights regained the series lead with a 4-3 win in overtime on Monday at SAP Center. Center William Karlsson scored 8:17 into the extra session to complete his third straight multipoint contest.

But Sharks coach Peter DeBoer likes how the team has played — especially after a 7-0 loss last Thursday.

“I think we’re getting better every game,” he said Tuesday. “Game 1, you throw it out, but I thought the last two games, we’re starting to really play well. We’re getting a feel for what we need to do.”

What San Jose needs to do is continue to get more pucks past Marc-Andre Fleury. He finished with 39 saves Monday [url=]Authentic Blake Wheeler Jersey[/url] , but none bigger than a glove grab of Logan Couture’s shot from the slot early in overtime.

The three-time Stanley Cup winner is 6-1 with a 1.23 goals-against average and three shutouts during this postseason.

“He’s not going anywhere,” DeBoer noted. “We’re not the first team he’s done it to, so you’ve got to stick with it, but the good news is we’re getting better. We’re starting to put some pucks in the net.”

Since being blanked, San Jose scored seven goals in its last two games. So has Vegas.

“They’re a really good team, too,” DeBoer said. “They’ve got some high-end guys who are really opportunistic. When they get chances [url=]Chris Kreider Jersey[/url] , they stick them in the net.”

That includes Karlsson, winger Reilly Smith and center Jonathan Marchessault, who have combined for seven goals and 19 assists during these playoffs.

Karlsson scored all nine of his postseason points — four goals and five assists — in a five-game streak, while Smith (goal, eight assists) has collected all of his points in a six-game run.

San Jose is aware that to have a better chance of tying the series, better discipline is needed. Trailing 1-0 in the second period Monday, the Golden Knights beat Martin Jones (1-2 with a 4.07 GAA in the series) with two straight power-play goals.

Vegas is 5-for-18 with the man advantage in this series after going 1-for-12 in a four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Kings in the first round.

How would Sharks captain Joe Pavelski combat that special teams success?

“It’s staying out of the box a little bit and the simple penalties — the pucks over the glass [url=]Womens Tom Pyatt Jersey[/url] , too many men,” he said. “I expect the guys will be ready. They’ll be ready to try and even this series out and it’s an important game for us, for sure.”

Fleury also preached the need to remain calm.

“It’s about staying disciplined during the game and having a full 60-minute effort so that we can play the way we want to play,” he said.

Game 5 is scheduled for Friday night in Las Vegas.

The sports world is filled with many stories of 鈥渙ne-hit wonders,鈥?individuals who either had one good season or one monumental moment on a big stage before eventually fading into oblivion over time. Somewhat ironically, because of when this piece is being produced, not every individual who聽experiences聽only a single good season before losing momentum and the favor of fans disappears forever. Nick Foles enjoyed success with the Philadelphia Eagles [url=]Authentic Todd Gurley Jersey[/url] , ultimately lost his gig with that team, became a backup with the Eagles during a second stint with the club and then helped Philly win a first Super Bowl in franchise history. He聽earned MVP honors for his play on that evening.

For every tale such as that attached to Foles鈥?name, there have been numerous NFL players who had one good season and then became 鈥渨hatever happened to those guys?鈥?stories. The list begins with an individual who is still in the NFL as of the middle of August 2018, a person who unquestionably possessed Hall of Fame talent in his prime but who has battled demons and personal issues for many years. Nobody, maybe not even the player himself, knows what he will be able to achieve if he can make a聽return from football oblivion and become a mainstay in a lineup. It鈥檚 possible that playing聽the sport at such a high level is not what is best for him.
