San Jose Sharks Gameday: 5 ways the Sharks can beat Jonathan Quick

How hard can it be? - Jeff Gross

Quick is good, but he isn't without his weaknesses. Here are 5 ways the Sharks can definitely beat him.

The San Jose Sharks had plenty of shots on goal and scoring chances in game one against the Los Angeles Kings, but LA goalie Jonathan Quick put on a solid performance and shut the Sharks out. Now I don't claim to be the greatest hockey expert in the world but I'm pretty sure that the Sharks are going to need score at least four goals if they want to win this series. With that in mind, I've put together some recommendations for ways the Sharks can start beating Quick.

Five ways the Sharks can beat Jonathan Quick

#5 With one hand



Jonathan Quick is exactly the kind of asshole who WOULD hassle a one-armed dude while he just wants to eat his chili.

#4 Gruesomely



If the dudes in this clip were hockey players in the playoffs they would be described as being "a little banged-up" and would be day-to-day.

#3 Surprise him in his apartment


The Comedian isn't actually a great stand-in for Quick. He's a lot more similar to Drew Doughty.

#2 Use baseball bats



The downside of this method is that it will involve beating up Quick's brother too, but hey - it's the playoffs. Sacrifices must be made.

#1 Just take the puck from him

Seriously guys. It's not that hard.



Here are the main positive and negative takeaways from game one for the Sharks:

Positives

Desjardins_medium_medium

  • The team didn't look rusty after their extended break.
  • The Kings were limited to 20 shots on goal.
  • The Sharks got the better of some key player vs. player match-ups. Especially the battle between Raffi Torres and Jarret Stoll.
Negatives

Prediction: The Sharks mix their lines around and Tommy Wingels ends up playing with Joe Thornton. Wingels scores twice, and the Sharks win 2-1.
