And some coaches notes courtesy of the Sharks PR staff:

Score: Dallas 4 – San Jose 1 Final

Date: March 3, 2009

SHARKS, HEAD COACH, Todd McLellen:

“It made a huge impact on our team [to lose Pavelski]. He’s perhaps been our best player over the past few games, a penalty killer, he anchors a power play – when you lose him you have to have people pick up their game a little more, and that didn’t happen tonight.”

“We worked on our defenses and coverage in practice yesterday. Some of the mistakes we made tonight were directly addressed. Either we did a very poor job as coaches addressing them, or we didn’t pick up on some of the cues that we need to. We’ll go back to the drawing board and try a different approach as coaches and make sure they get the message.”

Stars HEAD COACH, Dave Tippett

“Two games in a week we’ve played against that team that we’ve played very well. We didn’t get rewarded for our work in the first game but I thought we got rewarded for it tonight. We created a lot of chances and capitalized on those chances, we defended hard when we had to, and Marty Turco made some great saves when he had to. We competed really, really hard and that’s the way it’s going to have to be if we’re going to be successful. We did that tonight and found a way to win.”

“We needed to get rewarded for some hard work. We’ve played some very good games, over that five-game losing streak. I thought three games we had a real good chance to win, a couple of them we didn’t play very well, but we needed something to give us that jolt of energy that our work would be compensated, and the win is a good compensation for that.”
