Sharks need to play for each other, Boughner amid rough skid


“Maybe it’s a good thing to be embarrassed. Maybe that’s the adversity, we’ll see how guys react to it.”

That’s what Bob Boughner had to say after the San Jose Sharks were dismantled 8-0 by the Nashville Predators.

This was the second-worst shutout loss in franchise history and just the 13th time that the Sharks were beaten by eight or more goals in a game.

“It’s one game,” San Jose Sharks captain Logan Couture offered in the aftermath.
