How to Watch San Jose Sharks Games Online Without Cable

By Sachin Sharma / February 12, 2022

The San Jose Sharks have been competing in the NHL since 1991 and have treated fans to some eye-catching hockey over the years. They have not been able to get their hands on the Stanley Cup trophy just yet, but the franchise has enjoyed some impressive runs and even made the final back in 2016.

The San Jose Sharks have one Conference Championship, one Presidents' Trophy, and six Division titles to their name, and the aim will be to add the Stanley Cup trophy to their cabinet very soon. Some big names have played for the Sharks over the years. But after reaching the Conference Finals in the 2018/19 season, they have failed to make the playoffs for the last two seasons. The aim for this season is to ensure that they do not miss out on the playoffs for the third straight season, but the chances do not look too great at the moment.

The San Jose Sharks have a lot of room for improvement, with both their defending and attacking play leaving a lot to be desired. So it will be interesting to see whether they can make the changes they need to be able to become a force once again.
