Timo Meier’s analysis of the Sharks’ sloppy 8-5 loss to the Seattle Cracken on Wednesday was simple: “We shot ourselves in the foot.”
That’s what coach David Quinn said after the Sharks’ 5-4 loss to the Anaheim Ducks in a shootout on Nov. 5. After losing 4-2 to the Vegas Golden Knights on October 25th. Islanders, 18 October.
James Reimer said this after a 2-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on October 14. And Quinn started it on October 8 after a 3-2 loss to the Nashville Predators.
If the Sharks were in the yearbook, “Shoot Yourself in the Foot” would be the theme for the 2022–23 NHL season.
According to Quinn, it all started in practice on Tuesday.
“I didn’t like our practice yesterday either,” he shared after the game. “And I think it’s moved to tonight.”
