SAN JOSE,12月23日:圣何塞鲨鱼队前锋托马斯·赫特尔(48岁)在周日比赛的第三节与亚利桑那州郊狼科诺·加兰(83岁)在网边进行比赛,他试图把冰球从守门员达西·库普特(35岁)手中抢过去,12月。23,2018,in San Jose,Calif.(阿里克·克拉布/湾区新闻集团)

圣·乔斯-埃里克·卡尔森在沙发上看着,鲨鱼队对西部联盟最差的球队之一又得了一分。

在周六加班时落入洛杉矶国王队后,周日,鲨鱼队(19-12-7)以三连败告终,他们向亚利桑那州郊狼队丢掉了决赛的决定。They earned the point while playing without Karlsson,谁收到了NHL球员安全部暂停两场比赛当天早些时候洛杉矶国王队前锋奥斯汀·瓦格纳被击中,联盟认为这是非法的。

Karlsson will be eligible to rejoin the Sharks lineup on Dec.29当他们去加拿大和埃德蒙顿石油公司对决时。

以下是我们从鲨鱼4-3枪战输给沙漠狗身上学到的:

1。The Christmas break is coming just in time.

被NHL三天的圣诞假期所拯救。

After they emptied the bank account in a loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday,the Sharks scrapped together just enough change from the couch to get through the weekend,在与太平洋赛区排名倒数第二的球队的比赛中,他们以双双的失利赢得一分。

Both games required third period comebacks to scratch out single points.

"The break's coming at the right time,"DeBoer说。"对我们来说,这是一个艰难的月份,旅行。我感觉我们队有点不舒服。The tank's a little empty.""

It isn't uncommon for the Sharks coach to sugarcoat things when the team isn't playing well.这里不是这样的。The shootout loss to the Coyotes marked the end of a grueling month of travel in which the Sharks made trips to Eastern Canada,Texas and the upper-Midwest,playing 15 games in 30 nights,changing time zones 14 times.

上周,他们远道前往芝加哥和明尼苏达州,进行了两场比赛的路演,鲨鱼队回到圣何塞,四天之内只在家玩了三场比赛,中间只有一天休息时间。They threw everything on the table against the Jets Thursday,为周末对国王和狼队的失望做准备。

Still,鲨鱼队在圣诞假期前以三连败的状态赢了八场比赛中的七场。自去年12月以来,他们在11场比赛中的9场比赛中获得了积分。2。

Even Logan Couture,鲨鱼更衣室里最热心的评论家,正在从容应对损失。

"我不会说这是倒退,"Couture said."We weren't at our best.""

The most discouraging aspect of Sunday's loss was the continuation of Marc-Edouard Vlasic's defensive struggles on the Sharks blue line.Vlasic extended his lead in the race for the Sharks green jacket,在球队在第三局平局不到两分钟后,这个进球就消失不见了。

就在克莱顿·凯勒分手后几秒钟,Conor Garland snuck behind Vlasic,在第三节6:06领先狼队3:2。The lack of awareness on the play was befuddling considering that Vlasic is a guy that used to get named to Team Canada on the basis of his defense alone.

"让一个家伙在同一班次里落后我们两次,two breakaways,我们不是这样玩的"Couture said.

2。托马斯·赫特尔正在悄悄地筹备另一个强劲的赛季。

通过进入第三阶段的目标跟踪,DeBoer将Hertl向下滑动到第三行中心位置,25岁的捷克人打进了两粒进球,把鲨鱼队带入加时赛。

两球之夜给了赫特尔本赛季的12分,在33场比赛中得到29分。

除了他的作品,Hertl is so valuable because of the pliability of his game.He adds a power forward presence to Couture's line,自从鲨鱼队在2017-18赛季只参加了3场比赛,这让鲨鱼队的替补队长得以蓬勃发展。At the same time,如果需要的话,DeBoer可以将Hertl移到中间,当他在比赛后期裁掉鲨鱼队的替补席时,在阵容的深处制造了失配。

"It's big because it creates mismatches,"DeBoer说。"他,Timo (Meier) and Logan have been a dominant line for long stretches,but again tonight,他能够在阵容中给我们带来一点活力,这是一个因素。”"

在11月初因脑震荡问题缺席了5场比赛之后,Hertl's game is returning to the form that made him such a valuable player for the Sharks in the playoffs last spring.周日有两个进球,他现在得了11分(6克,5a) in 10 games.

"Pete expects a lot from me,"Hertl said."I'm for sure happy with Pete giving me,每天晚上,机会。I get a lot of minutes.I just want to give him and show him my best.""

三。蒂姆·希德取代卡尔森而闪耀。

希德不会把卡尔森变成曲棍球的沃利·皮普(卢·格里格在纽约洋基队阵容中取代的那个人),but he acquitted himself well in place of the two-time Norris Trophy winner Sunday.

Suiting up for his first game since Nov.23,只有他本赛季的第三个赛季,Heed got the Sharks on the board with his first goal,a power play marker at 15:11 of the first.

随着比赛的进行,海德从DeBoer那里赢得了越来越多的信任。鲨鱼队教练给了希德19次换班的冰上时间17:09,在第三节比赛中,他和布伦特·伯恩斯一起滑冰四次,鲨鱼队落后一球。

"这不容易,就像(拉姆)西米克坐了这么久才进来,"DeBoer说。"He's worked awful hard off the ice and practicing in order to wait for these opportunities.你永远不知道他们会怎么来。受伤了吗?Suspension?他今晚干得不错。”"

Heed isn't going to take any ice time away from Karlsson,但如果他在12月给鲨鱼队另一场精彩的比赛。27,他可以给DeBoer一些思考。在西梅克在NHL的头九场比赛中闪耀之后,他星期六被割了冰,skating for just 6:34 against the Kings.星期日,he received 2:17 less than Heed.

"It's tough when you're not playing.You don't really know where you're at,"Heed said."But I think I played a pretty good game.我只是努力工作,保持积极,and stay ready for the opportunity.""
