San Jose Sharks: Positives, Negatives Come from OT Loss to Lightning

The San Jose Sharks marched a step deeper into their nine-game road trip last night with a visit to Tampa Bay.

After beating the Lightning 7-2 in San Jose on December 21st, the Sharks felt confident going into this game. They were coming off an impressive 5-3 victory over the Capitals, and knew they could repeat that offensive success on Thursday.

After Dwayne Roloson was announced as the starter, the confidence must have gone up. The 42-year-old has an .883 save percentage and 3.67 goals-against average this season.

The confidence lead to another brilliant offensive showing. The Sharks scored five goals on 50 shots last night. Unfortunately, Tampa Bay scored six times on only 25 shots, and the Sharks ended up with one point in an overtime loss.

Losing in OT always provides a mixed bag, but this visit to Tampa was especially full of both positives and negatives.
