Berkshire Bank Rewind: Sharks’ Offensive Zone Pressure Creates Quality Scoring Chances vs. Bruins (Video)

The San Jose Sharks entered Thursday night’s game against the Boston Bruins with the highest-scoring offense in the NHL, and they had a dominant first period in which they out-shot the B’s 16-3.

The key for the Sharks was sustaining offensive zone pressure and winning puck battles along the boards. Quick, accurate puck movement also opened up shooting lanes for San Jose forwards to fire shots on Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask, who stopped all of the shots he faced in the first 20 minutes.

There was one particular sequence in the first period where the Sharks created several quality scoring chances. Check it out in the video above as Andy Brickley breaks it down in this Berkshire Bank Rewind.
