Sharks-Penguins Preview

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The nerves are gone. Spending your franchise's first 20 minutes in a Stanley Cup Final standing around while your opponent zips unimpeded from one end of the ice to the other will do that.

The San Jose Sharks insist they'll be better in Game 2 on Wednesday night against the Pittsburgh Penguins than they were in the opener, when the Western Conference champions wobbled out of the gate and never really had control in a 3-2 loss that spoiled the club's debut in the NHL's marquee event after a quarter century wait.

It might have been jitters. It might have been a cross-country trip to face an unfamiliar opponent. Or, maybe the Sharks allowed themselves to briefly get caught up in the moment. Whatever it was, they understand it has to stop if they don't want to head home in a 0-2 hole that would be difficult to escape.
