Joe Pavelski was left with an empty feeling after the Sharks lost in the Stanley Cup Final to Pittsburgh.
"To be right there and be that close ... ," Pavelski said. "At the end of the day, it's tough. It just ends. We've been playing and traveling and playing every other day for a long time. It seems like you should keep playing." He had four hits, three blocks and a minus-2 rating in Game 6's 3-1 loss to the Penguins. He wasn't credited with a shot on goal in the contest and his only point of the series came on a empty-net goal in Game 5. Jun 13 - 10:08 AM

Joe Pavelski is expecting the Sharks' power play to be better in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final on Sunday night.

"There’s definitely areas we can be better and will try to be better," Pavelski said. "We’re only getting one or two a night right now. It’s just about being ready to execute on that first one. We’re not usually getting three, four, five a night here where you can work your way through it. So a good start on it goes a long way." The Sharks have averaged two power plays per game during the Stanley Cup Final, which means they'll have to make the most of their chances.

The San Jose Sharks have not scored a power play goal in their last four games.

The Sharks scored once in the opening game of the final but have not found the back of the net in their last eight opportunities. The Sharks were scoring at a 27 percent clip in the playoffs heading into the Cup Final but have been unable to solve the Penguins penalty killing for the most part. "A power play can turn in a hurry," Joe Pavelski said. "We can be a little bit cleaner. We can get a few more pucks back I think. Just the motion. The things we try to create on a power play, maybe we haven't done as well. And then there's only a couple of opportunities out there right now. You never know when they're going to come. You got to be ready for them when they do come."

Joe Pavelski leads the Sharks with 17 even-strength scoring chances, according to war-on-ice.com.

The fact that Pavelski has had a quiet series on the score sheet — scoring his only goal in Game 5, via an empty net — does not mean he hasn’t been around the net. He has one goal and 13 shots in the series. The Sharks need more production from him if they are to force a Game 7.
Jun 11 - 8:45 PM

Joe Pavelski got his first point of the Stanley Cup Final in Game 5's 4-2 win over Pittsburgh.

He scored into an empty net at the 18:40 mark of the third period to seal the victory. Pavelski leads the playoffs with 14 goals and he has 23 points in 23 games. He will need to be better in Game 6 to help San Jose force a Game 7 against Pittsburgh.

His team will face elimination in the Stanley Cup Final Thursday, and he hasn't recorded a point in the championship series, but San Jose captain Joe Pavelski insists he couldn't be any more positive.

"We're still right here [in the series]," Pavelski said Wednesday. "If we find a way to win this game, it brings a little bit of life into us. This group has always had a lot of fun playing, regardless of the situation." The Sharks trail the Penguins 3-1 in the series. Losing Game 5 in Pittsburgh would end the Sharks' season and their hope to win the first NHL title in their 25-year history. "We just have to be a little bit better," Pavelski said. "All of these games have been so close. We are right there. We just have to score and capitalize on our chances." Pavelski entered the Cup Final as the favorite to capture the Conn Smythe Trophy, but he hasn't scored against the Pens in this series. He has 22 points in 21 postseason games. The odds are massively in the Penguins' favor. A team has held a 3-1 series lead 32 times since the Cup Final became a seven-game series in 1939 and, 31 times, that team has won the Cup.

Joe Pavelski still hasn't registered a point in the Stanley Cup Final.

Pavelski came into the final series as the favorite to win the Conn Smythe trophy, but he's gone cold since Game 1 against Pittsburgh. The 31-year-old is still averaging a point-per-game (22 points in 21 games) this postseason, but the Sharks will need him to produce more if they hope to hoist the Stanley Cup. "It's tough this time of year," said Sharks coach Peter DeBoer. "Every round, he's getting a lot of attention, just like [Sharks defenseman] Brent Burns is getting a lot of attention, just like [Sharks center Joe Thornton] is getting a lot of attention. I have no doubt he's going to break through here. He has all year for us. It's just a matter of time."

Joe Pavelski won 10-of-13 faceoffs Saturday.

Pavelski was strong on the draw but his offense seems to have gone missing in the Cup Final as he has yet to get a point in three games. He managed only one shot on goal Saturday and his seven game points streak heading into the Final, seems so long ago. The Sharks need Pavelski to get his offensive game in gear, otherwise they will have too much trouble winning three more games.
