The San Jose Sharks may have tipped the scales on Sunday given the close race to see the final three spots in the Western Conference Stanley Cup NHL Jerseys Playoffs. They defeated the Vegas Golden Knights on ice 5-4 after a penalty shootout, even though they were trailing 2-4 with 126 seconds left in regulation. Nick Bonino reduced the deficit to 3:4 and the Swiss Timo Meier scored the equalizer in the final second, with which the Sharks saved themselves in the additional shift, which they were able to successfully complete.
“It shows the character of our team hockey jerseys, even in the last games of the season. We try to be competitive and never give up. We have to take that with us into the summer when we have to work a lot on ourselves. At the moment it feels are feeling pretty good. We need to make sure we have a playoff spot at this point next season,” Meier said.
For the Sharks, the 2022 Stanley Cup NHL Jerseys Playoffs are already out of reach. With three games left, sixth in the Pacific Division, they are seven points off second wildcard spot. The Golden Knights have three points fewer than the Dallas Stars and four fewer points than the Nashville Predators, who are second and first wildcards.
“We knew how important this game was for Vegas. We got extra motivation from that, also because we have a special rivalry with them. Of course there were a lot of people who stuck by us and who also congratulated me after the game “, said the Herisauer, who is the most successful goalscorer and best preparer for the Northern Californians this season with 76 points (35 goals, 41 games).
The Sharks will play their last three games of the season this week at home against the Anaheim Ducks and away at the Edmonton Oilers and Seattle Kraken.
