The Sharks looked dominant at times in Game 1, but didn’t look like they were the same team that took the second seed in the Western Conference.
San Jose Sharks head coach Todd McLellan said to the Mercury News:
I'm disappointed in our team, it’s hard to find two or three guys who really competed at the level they needed to. We need to be better in a lot of different areas. You have to have a little fire in your eyes and in your belly. But you have to play with controlled emotion, with smart emotion. We actually put that up on our board, and it got away on us.
While it’s just one game, San Jose needs to step up their play and when at least one game in Los Angeles or they will be going home early again.
