NHL 14: San Jose Sharks Guide
Written By: JCOL32
Founded in 1991, the Sharks have won their Division championship in six of the past ten seasons. However, the Sharks have never advanced to a Stanley Cup final.
The San Jose Sharks will enter the 2013/14 season determined to fix their previous disappointing playoff performances. Led by Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski, and Martin Havlat, the Sharks should be a playoff contender once again this year. The Sharks are also very sturdy at the backend with the likes of Brent Burns, Dan Boyle, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, and Brad Stuart. Antti Niemi will return looking to post similar numbers to his stellar season from a year ago.
How to Play as the Sharks:
The Sharks have a great wealth of scoring. Try to alternate their top two lines as much as possible and you will surely have success. If you are on the power play, attempt to set up Dan Boyle at the blue line as he has a great shot. Dan Boyle is also a great puck-moving defensemen so use this to your advantage. Antti Niemi will be a solid goalie for you in NHL 14 so do not be afraid to take chances going forward while playing with the Sharks.
The Sharks currently use “Seek & Destroy” by Metallica as their entrance song as the team goes through their 17-foot open shark mouth to step onto the ice at the beginning of each home game.
