A brutal loss by the Jets to start this three-game homestand as they blow it late (4.3 seconds left) which gives the Sharks a 5-4 victory. They fall to 40-25-4 on the season.

For those who would like to take a deeper dive into the advanced stats here are the results from tonight’s game via Natural Stat Trick.

Game Play:

– Marc-Edouard Vlasic opened the scoring for the Sharks as he buried a rebound eight minutes into the 1st;
– 32 seconds later Andrew Copp tipped home a Ben Chiarot shot to tie the game;
– 33 seconds later Bryan Little tossed a shot on net from the Sharks blueline which deflected in to give Wpg a 2-1 lead;
– But Hertl made a beauty inside out move and then Gustav Nyqvist buried the backhand up and over to tie the game at 2.
– Kyle Connor got things going in the 3rd with a nice backhand of his own to give the Jets a 3-2 lead;
– Nyquist got his second goal of the game when he got a piece of a a Vlasic shot to make it 3-3;
– The 2nd period would end 3-3.
– San Jose re-took the lead early in the 3rd when Jumbo Joe hit Sorenson with a perfect pass which he put upstairs on Hellebuyck;
– Mathieu Perreault tied it up with 3:38 left in the game on a nice tip of a Myers shot from the point;
– Blake Wheeler left and came back after he took a Couture elbow to the head;
– Somehow the Jets allowed a late 2 on 1 against which Pavelski finished off to give the visitors a 5-4 lead with 4.3 seconds left;


The Jets lost 5-4 to a team playing a second game of a back-to-back and without Evander Kane/Erik Karlsson. Of course the Sharks are leading the Western Conference so they aren’t exactly a light weight.

Ben Chiarot

Coach Maurice:  Thoughts on the game and how it ended.  Where was the breakdown on that last Sharks goal?  What did he make of the end zone D coverage?  What happened when Blake Wheeler came off?  Net front traffic and the success they had with it tonight.  On Myers helping to push opportunity when down.

Up Next:

The Jets are scheduled to practice tomorrow at 12 pm at Bell MTS Place as they prepare for another tough game against the Boston Bruins.  Kick start your day with the AM Jets papers which go live at 7 am on
