Friday night: Playoff points to watch

No. 1 Vancouver Canucks at No. 2 San Jose Sharks (Canucks lead 2-0), 9 p.m. ET

  • San Jose has lost eight straight conference finals games, one shy of the longest streak since the conference finals began in 1982.

  • In their past five games, the Sharks have given up a combined six goals in the first and second periods and 13 goals in the third period. They lost four out of five of those games.

  • Led by Bed Eager's 20 penalty minutes, the Sharks spent 53 minutes in the penalty box in Game 2. This led to seven power-play chances and three man-advantage goals for the Canucks.

  • The Sharks are down 2-0 in a series after losing both games on the road for the first time since 2000.

  • In Game 2, 12 Vancouver players had at least one point.
