San Jose Sharks: Magic Number Countdown (67,69)

Well, after the past three days we have seen no improvement on our countdown. The Sharks fell unconvincingly to a team seeking revenge in the Calgary Flames.

A bitter tasting 5-2 loss. The San Jose Sharks have struggled on the road lately, a dismal 1-2-3 record the past three games… It’s true they have earned 5 points, with only 1 win, but it’s not quite the squad we’re used to seeing at HP Pavilion.

So the Canadian Tour continues with the Edmonton Oilers up first of two games in two nights. The second, of course, in Vancouver.

MAGIC NUMBERS:

Pacific Division Crown: 67 Points over Anaheim.

The Sharks currently sit 18 points ahead of Anaheim in the Pacific Division with one game in hand. The Sharks will not see the Ducks until March 15th. There are three games between the two clubs remaining including a crucial home-and-home series the last week of the season. The Sharks hold a 2-1 edge on the season series.

(Playoffs: 65 Points)

NHL HISTORY: 69 Points

Before last night’s game the Sharks were projected to finish the season with 136 points. After the loss, based on points earned/games played ratio, San Jose would finish the season 132 or 133 points.
