10 things we're not thankful for in the NHL

  10 things we're not thankful for in the NHL From cancer to concussions to a slump to a star player, here are what we could do without in the NHL.What we would be thankful to be without:

Sharks hand Flyers ninth straight loss . It's the longest skid since an 0-8-2 stretch in February 2008. The home crowd let the Flyers have it, booing the team off the ice after the second period and intermittently in the third.

PHILADELPHIA — Joe Thornton scored the go-ahead goal late in the first period and the San Jose Sharks extended the Philadelphia Flyers ’ longest losing streak in nearly 10 years to nine games with a 3-1 victory Tuesday night.

Claude Giroux scored 48 seconds in before the Flyers were blanked the rest of the way by backup Aaron Dell, who made 22 saves.

The Flyers are 0-4-5 since their last win, Nov. 9 against Chicago. It's the longest skid since an 0-8-2 stretch in February 2008.

The home crowd let the Flyers have it, booing the team off the ice after the second period and intermittently in the third. There were also "Fire Hakstol" chants by some fans in the upper deck. Coach Dave Hakstol mixed up some lines but was unable to halt the worst stretch of his three seasons in charge.

San Jose was without top goaltender Martin Jones, who sustained an unspecified injury near the end of his shutout of Winnipeg on Saturday. Jones traveled and is expected to play on the trip.

CALGARY, Alberta -- Fresh off a six-game road trip, the Calgary Flames will kick off a four-game homestand when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night. Booed off the ice : Sharks send Flyers to 9 th straight loss (Nov 28, 2017).

After Giroux's 11th goal, Dell looked sharp. Tierney tied it from the right circle at 10:29, and then Thornton's 5-on-3 goal with 1:18 left in the first period put the Sharks ahead 2-1.

Vlasic scored with 3:56 left in the second period.

It marked the seventh time in nine games the Flyers have blown a lead during their skid. And undisciplined play continues to be a problem.

Philadelphia took three penalties in 3 minutes late in the first period. Then while trailing 2-1, the Flyers went on the power play early in the second period, only to have it negated 9 seconds later when Jakub Voracek tripped Tomas Hertl.

On the second day of a back-to-back, Michal Neuvirth made 31 saves for the Flyers. Neuvirth started in place of Brian Elliott in his first action since he was pulled after allowing four goals on 22 shots in a 4-1 loss to Vancouver on Nov. 21.

The Sharks earned a split in the season series after losing on opening night to the Flyers 5-3 behind Wayne Simmonds' hat trick. Simmonds has scored just four goals in 24 games since.

Penguins carrying some positive momentum into rivalry game against the Flyers

  Penguins carrying some positive momentum into rivalry game against the Flyers For the first time in what seems like weeks, the Penguins will carry some honest-to-goodness positive momentum into Monday night’s game against the Flyers. They’ve been optimistic about parts of their game, even after recent losses, but to put five in the net against a Tampa Bay team that leads the Eastern Conference makes it feel a bit more real.“It’s nice when they go in,” Sidney Crosby said. “I think as a team, as a line, we’ve generated some good chances here the last few games and held onto pucks and created some good zone time. That usually translates into goals.
