Meier proves All-Star case; Sharks' power play hits new low originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

This was a telling, if all too typical game for the San Jose Sharks.

On one hand, they pounded Igor Shesterkin with 37 shots, more than a handful Grade-A opportunities. They held the Metropolitan Division-leading New York Rangers to just six high-danger chances at 5-on-5, per Natural Stat Trick, while collecting 16 themselves. By and large, they outplayed, or at least skated up and down with, a good team.

“We did a lot of great things,” head coach Bob Boughner offered. “I thought defensively, we played a pretty good game. It was just one of those nights where we generated enough, we just couldn’t find the answer to Shesterkin.”
