The San Jose Sharks have scored once in three games and have lost against two of the worst teams in the Western Conference. They'll need to do better tonight against reigning champs the Chicago Blackhawks.
The lone Sharks goal on Thursday night against the Calgary Flames didn't come easy. After trailing by two goals in the third, Patrick Marleau made a beautiful pass to Tommy Wingels, who chipped to rookie Eriah Hayes. Hayes scored his first NHL goal of his career.
Tonight's game against the Blackhawks will also be a challenge. Chicago sits comfortably in second place in the West, behind the seemingly unbeatable Anaheim Ducks. The Sharks have been no stranger to scoring opportunities (see the insane 59 shots against the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday. Damn you, Ben Scrivens!) But having a million shots on goal means nothing if they're not finding the back of the net.
