Jabber Jaws: Karlsson “disrespected”

Another tough go of it for the San Jose Sharks, who looked slow even at the start of the 6-0 loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

The deck was stacked against the Sharks from the beginning. Not only was it the second night of back-to-back games, but the Sharks went from playing at 784 feet above sea level in Winnipeg to playing at 5,280 feet above sea level less than 24 hours later in Denver. That’s not an easy switch for even the fittest of athletes.

Add in the fact that the Sharks faced a rested Avalanche team that’s competing for a wild card spot in the Western Conference and coming off a losing streak and it was a recipe for disaster.
