Dan Rusanowsky recently highlighted an unusual Sharks streak of games in which they have led or trailed by a score of 2-0. Since writing his blog two games ago, the streak has stretched to 10 consecutive game. In the five games the Sharks have lead 2-0, they have a 3-1-1 record. In the five games the Sharks have trailed, they have a 1-4-0 record. Here's one of those 2-0 starts.
Nothing like starting the day with some disappointing news.
I'm going to miss the 6'2", 210 lb Hertl and his wonderful smile out there on the ice. He leads all NHL rookies with 15 goals & 25 points— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) December 21, 2013
Christmas is coming.
Alex Stalock gets the nod in goal, getting his first career home start.

Alex Goligoski center pass goes in off traffic. Stars lead 2-0. Great work by Cody Eakin to set up goal under review though.— Mark Stepneski (@StarsInsideEdge) December 22, 2013
Time to rally @SanJoseSharks .....— Kristi Yamaguchi (@kristiyamaguchi) December 22, 2013

Players are not the only ones battling injury and illness tonight.
Drinking tea w/honey. Got the lozenges going too. Thanks for all the kind shout outs tonight!— Randy Hahn (@sharkvoice) December 22, 2013

For just the second time in the streak of 2-0 starts to games, action was extended to an extra period.
#SJsharks with the better of the OT chances. Pavelski nearly ends it— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzCSN) December 22, 2013
... and extended further.
