The Islanders (1-3-0) continue their annual swing through California after falling 3-2 to Anaheim on Wednesday.

"We have to get some pucks in and find a way because these are games that I feel like we should win," coach Doug Weight told the Islanders' official website.

It happened. Again. 

On Friday afternoon, the Islanders found a new, agonizing way to give up a decisive goal late, and it may have been the final nail in the coffin of this season.

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Keeping the puck and putting pressure on the opponent are good ways to wind up on the winning side.

Sharks goalie Martin Jones thought that's what San Jose did all night, making his job easy.

Jones made 26 saves, Chris Tierney and Patrick Marleau each scored early and San Jose sent the New Jersey Devils to their third straight loss Monday night with a 4-0 victory. Read more >>

The San Jose Sharks are glad to be back home for an extended period. Perhaps it will get their struggling offense going.

San Jose opens a five-game homestand and a stretch of seven of eight at SAP Center on Monday night against the New Jersey Devils, who are dealing with their own problems trying to generate offense.

The Sharks are coming off a 3-3-0 road trip -- their longest of the season. Things started well with 10 goals scored in wins over the Washington Capitals, Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning. They followed by tallying only four goals in losses to the Carolina Hurricanes, St. Louis Blues and Arizona Coyotes.

The San Jose Sharks are expected to hire Peter DeBoer as their new head coach (LeBrun, May 27).

DeBoer served as the Devils head coach from 2011-2014, leading them to a Stanley Cup finals appearance in 2012. He was fired just 36 games into this season after a?12?17?7 start. Adam Oates and Scott Stevens replaced him on the bench for the remainder of the season in a duel-coaching set up.

Prior to coming to?the Devils, DeBoer coached the Florida Panthers from 2008-2011. He has a 205-183-70 lifetime record as a head coach.

The Islanders remain undefeated after four games -- the first time they have done that since 2001-02. Thursday night's win was another sign of the changing times as they defeated one of the best teams in the Western Conference and out played them for much of the game. It was the biggest test the Islanders have faced in the young season.

For the game story click here?and for the Islanders notebook click here.

Below are some quick thoughts and notes from Thursday night's game:

  • You have to once again give a big shout out to the fans who showed up on Thursday night. It wasn't the biggest crowd (11,248), but they sure made the building sound like it was packed to the brim. As I commented to one reporter in the press box, that was the loudest weekday game I've been to in quite some time. And the "YES!" chants after a goal are great. It started in 329 and has spread through the rest of the arena.
  • The Islanders have certainly shown they can play with the best of them in the NHL. Carolina was a team that was beatable, but the New York Rangers and San Jose Sharks were true litmus tests of where the Islanders were. The Isles outshot the sharks 45-23 and were all over the visiting Western Conference opponent most of the night.
  • Calvin de Haan returned to a solid performance. He saw nearly twenty minutes of playing time and was a solid force on the backend. He played most of the night paired with Brian Strait and Islander Head Coach Jack Capuano was happy with how de Haan played.
  • Mikhail Grabovski left the game with an upper body injury after a big hit by John Scott. I know some fans wanted a penalty on the hit, but watching again it was a clean hit on Scott's part. We should know more on his condition at some point on Friday.
  • Jaroslav Halak has had better nights. He was very good in his first two starts, but Thursday was not his greatest outing. He did make the big stops when he needed to late in the game and in the overtime period. Not to mention the shootout. I would not panic because of one so-so performance. The Islanders still won and he still came up big when he had to.
  • Overall this game may go down as one of the more exciting games in the early part of this season. For anyone who was a the Coliseum or watching at home, they got their money's worth. Especially in the overtime period.
  • Oh and that John Tavares Shootout goal.... wow, just wow.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. --?Ask anyone covering or watching the?Islanders if they thought they would be undefeated to start the year and they probably would have shook their heads no. Emphatically.

Yes, everyone thought the Islanders would be good this year, but to start the season 4-0-0? It just wasn't in the cards, so we thought. But here they are, four games in and four games won. A feat that the Islanders have only done twice before, back in 2001-02 and 1976-77.

Even more impressive was the quality of the opponent they beat Thursday night in front of a raucous Nassau Coliseum crowd. The San Jose Sharks are a perennial contender in the western conference and were the biggest test the Isles were facing in the young season.

The hockey boards lit up toward the end of last week at the prospect of Dany Heatley coming east?to New Jersey.

Can you picture this scene, only with Dany Heatley wearing a Devils sweater?

That trade has likely been delayed, considering Tallinder was placed on IR today. But it's no secret that Heatley's been frustrated ever since he was pulled from the Minnesota Wild's top-line back in February.

The Devils were rumored to be interested at the beginning of Gomez's short process, but I never thought it was anything more than Lou doing his due diligence. I'm very interested to see what Gomez has left and how he fits into a Sharks team that is forever "one player away." He should, at the very least, add some playmaking depth to their forwards and be an interesting play on their second power-play unit.

Eric Boulton's hand has been hurting thanks to Douglas Murray's face. It was a good fight to say the least. Take a peak.

Former New Jersey Devils' defenseman Colin White returns to New Jersey tonight as the Devils take on the Sharks. During the offseason the Devils bought out Colin White's contract. He signed with the Sharks and has fit in well with them. Hopefully the Devils faithful give him a nice hand when he steps out on the ice tonight. He has really helped out the Devils organization in his tenure with the team.

Tonight the New Jersey Devils take on the San Jose Sharks at the Prudential Center. Now these two don't usually see each other more than once or twice a year. In the two games last season, both teams won one game . However, both teams have made major changes since last season. The Sharks became a more defensive team with the acquisitions of Brent Burns, Jim Vandermeer and former Devil Colin White. The Devils became a younger team with the loss of Brian Rolston and Colin White.

I expect this game to be a very close game if the Devils can avoid the penalty box. The Sharks are a very good powerplay team. They thrive off of it. The Sharks can score from any where on the power play. One off the things they knew they needed to improve was the point on the powerplay hence the reason why Brent Burns is a Shark. Last season the only defensive threat on the powerplay was Dan Boyle. That is no more. Burns is going to be logging a lot of time on the powerplay.

Martin Brodeur injured his shoulder last week against the Los Angeles Kings. Since then, he has not practiced or even suited up to sit on the bench in the team's one game since Brodeur's injury. Brodeur met up with a doctor yesterday about his shoulder and is still awaiting test results.?Brodeur was hoping to be better to play on Friday when the San Jose Sharks come to town. Keith Kinkaid has been called up from Albany to take Brodeur's spot. Johan Hedberg will get the start.

Friday the San Jose Sharks come to town to take on the Devils. This also is the return of former Devils Goaltender Corey Schwab. If you do not remember Schwab was on the 2003 Stanley Cup roster when the Devils won the cup. He is now the goaltending coach for the Sharks. It will be nice seeing Schwab back in New Jersey.
