Blowing late leads are never fun
This is a memory we want to forget, but it’s still a major moment in the current season. The Sharks aren’t performing up to expectations right now, but they’re still an extremely dangerous team. They have the talent to match the Predators and have come out on top twice already this season.
Back in October, the Predators had the Sharks on the mat and we saw what the Sharks are capable of. You can’t ease up on them no matter the score or how late in the game it is. The Sharks were led by their superstars over the last nine minutes of the game to stun the Predators at home.
This was the first real adversity the Predators faced up to this point. They had an ugly loss to the Flames, but they were still slaying through their schedule. Losing to San Jose always stings, but especially so when you have them beat and let Joe Pavelski and Brent Burns scored the final two goals to steal it.
