About San Jose Sharks
One of the most talented teams in the NHL to not win a Stanley Cup, the Sharks are seemingly always in the hunt. The team has won 6 division championships since 2002 and one conference championship in 2016. The San Jose Sharks began play in the NHL in the 1992-92 season. For the first two seasons of play the Sharks played at the Cow Palace in Daly City. For the 1993-94 season, the Sharks moved to their current home, the San Jose Arena – now the SAP Center. That season the Sharks qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time ever. They were the eighth seed in the Western Conference and went up against the top-seeded Detroit Red Wings. The Sharks surprised everyone when they upset the Red Wings in seven games. To this day it is still considered one of the biggest upsets in NHL history.
The San Jose Sharks continued to improve each season. They won their first division championship in 2002, and since then have one five more. The 2015-16 San Jose Sharks season was the closest the team has ever gotten to winning the Stanley Cup. They finished the regular season that year with 98 points subsequently qualifying for the postseason. In the first round the Sharks beat the Los Angeles Kings in five games. The next round went to seven games against the Nashville Predators and the Sharks came out on top again. To win the Western Conference championship, the Sharks beat out the St. Louis Blues in six games. Now the Sharks were in the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in franchise history. Sadly, the Sharks lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins in six very intense games.
The most recent NHL season for the Sharks was the first time in twenty years that the team played without Patrick Marleau, who left the team to sign with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He left holding almost every offensive record in team history. Without Marleau, the Sharks finished the regular season with a record of 45-27-10 and placed 3rd in the Pacific Division. In the first round of the playoffs the Sharks swept the Anaheim Ducks and proceeded to the next round. In the second round the Sharks were matched up against the new Vegas Golden Knights. The Sharks playoff run was cut short when the Golden Knights won the series in six games. Another year the Sharks will go without a Stanley Cup title. But that doesn’t mean San Jose will give up! The 2018-19 season will be the 28th season in the NHL for the Sharks. Their first game of the season will be a home game on October 3rd against the Anaheim Ducks. Franchise players Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski will be returning yet again. SAP Center is an arena that's always rocking, and it will be no different this season.
