Sharks postgame notes

SJC -- Good morning -- good early morning -- from San Jose Airport, where they gouge you $3.49 for a Vitamin Water. That's easily the worst of the 29 NHL airports (plus the large number I've hit through leisure travel). I should've gone to SFO.

Anyway, here are some notes sent by one of the finest media relations staffs in the league, the Sharks (Boston and Washington are up there, too), about Thursday's 3-0 win by the Sabres:

*Dany Heatley set a franchise record with 11 shots on goal. The previous record for shots in a game was 10, most recently achieved by Devin Setoguchi on Nov. 11, 2008 vs. Nashville.

*Ryan Miller’s shutout (20th of his career) is the first shutout for Buffalo against San Jose in the all-time series (28 games).

*Sharks Head Coach Todd McLellan: “Let’s talk about the first period, we go back a couple days I sat in that locker room and I listened to a group of players and coaches talk about their team and how important starts are and how they were going to come prepared, and we get that, that’s pretty disappointing.”

“That sums up our game the first team that played the first period unacceptable, after that not a bad effort but way too late, it’s that simple.”

“When you’re sloppy defensively and you’re not committed defensively you usually don’t execute offensively.”
