The 3rd-seeded ’10-’11 San Jose Sharks were the dominant team in this series from the beginning. They took Game 1, 3-2, while outshooting the 6th-seeded ’93-’94 San Jose Sharks 58-30. Defenseman Dan Boyle and his two assists made him the only ’10-’11 Shark with more than one point in the win. In an almost exactly the same performance as Game 1, the ’10-’11 Sharks won Game 2,  but by a score of 5-2 this time. Ryane Clowe posted a goal and two assists while Patrick Marleau potted two goals to lead the way. Game 3 was even, except for the scoreboard. The two teams had the same number of shots on goal, but the ’10-’11 Sharks won 6-2. Once again, Marleau led the way offensively, with two goals and two assists. Linemate Dany Heatley posted the same numbers while Joe Thornton, the final linemate, tallied three assists. The ’10-’11 Sharks completed the sweep with defenseman Ian White getting the game-winning goal at the 12:05 mark of the third period and Devin Setoguchi potting an empty-netter with 36 seconds left.
