The reigning representatives, the ’09-’10 Sharks, are heading to the 2015 San Jose Sharks Qualifying Final, after defeating the ’10-’11 Sharks in six games. Dan Boyle’s offense from the blue line contributed big time, especially in the series-deciding Game 6, as he posted three assists. (via sharks.nhl.com)

The 2nd-seeded ’09-’10 San Jose Sharks started out hot by scoring three goals in the first period of Game 1.

Eight players registered a point for the ’10-’11 Sharks in the win with defenseman Dan Boyle being the only player to post more than one point, one goal and one assist. They then took Game 3, 4-3, with Joe Pavelski scoring the game-winning goal at the 11:39 mark of the second period. Patrick Marleau posted a hat trick and added an assist in Game 4 to lead the ’09-’10 Sharks to a 5-3 lead. Joe Thornton tallied three assists in the win. In Game 5, Marleau scored halfway through the third to tie the game 2-2 and forcing overtime for the ’09-’10 Sharks. Thornton then won it for the ’09-’10 Sharks almost three minutes into overtime.
