WorSharks slow start leads to 6-3 loss to Binghamton

By Darryl Hunt - Last updated: Thursday, January 30, 2014

The Worcester Sharks’ schedule said Wednesday night’s game against the Binghamton Senators started at 7pm, but apparently the WorSharks thought it started about 40 minutes later as Worcester fell behind 3-0 early to the American Hockey League’s best offense and could never catch up in dropping a 6-3 contest at the DCU Center in Worcester, [...]

WorSharks lose three goal lead, still win 4-3 in shootout

By Darryl Hunt - Last updated: Sunday, January 26, 2014

The Worcester Sharks had a quiet first 27 minutes of Sunday’s game against the Manchester Monarchs, only to explode for three goals in the next seven minutes and then watch that lead slowly roll away as the game headed into overtime and then a shootout where the WorSharks finally prevailed to win 4-3 at the [...]

WorSharks come up small in front of a big crowd, lose 3-2 to Providence

By Darryl Hunt - Last updated: Sunday, January 26, 2014

The Worcester Sharks always have problems playing in front of large crowds at home, and despite a Gordie Howe hat trick by Dan DaSilva and a pretty good performance from Harri Sateri the WorSharks once again couldn’t get the job done against the Providence Bruins in dropping a 3-2 contest Saturday night at the DCU [...]

WorSharks can’t get it done in Manchester, lose 2-1

By Darryl Hunt - Last updated: Saturday, January 25, 2014

The Worcester Sharks six game point streak came to an end not with a bang but with a slow yawn as the WorSharks sleepwalked through a 2-1 loss to the Manchester Monarchs Friday night at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire in front of a crowd laughingly listed at 4,507. Matt Tennyson notched [...]

WorSharks scoreless but not pointless in 1-0 OT loss to Norfolk

By Darryl Hunt - Last updated: Sunday, January 19, 2014

The Worcester Sharks did about as well as you could possibly do without scoring a goal when Saturday night’s contest against the Norfolk Admirals once again turned into the Harri Sateri and John Gibson Show, only unlike Friday night it was Admirals coming out on top while the WorSharks earned the bonus point after Konrad [...]

Sateri, WorSharks take two from Norfolk in 3-2 shootout win

By Darryl Hunt - Last updated: Saturday, January 18, 2014

The Worcester Sharks spent 11 hours on a bus on Wednesday for a weekend trip south to Norfolk, Virginia, and for the first 35 minutes of Friday night’s game it was like they never left home as their hot streak from last weekend’s three-in-three victories continued in The Old Dominion State. Unfortunately a momentum changing [...]

By Darryl Hunt - Last updated: Monday, January 13, 2014

The Worcester Sharks new look offense continued on their latest hot streak, but unlike Friday and Saturday’s wins Sunday’s contest came down to the final horn as Worcester defeated the Portland Pirates 4-3 at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts in front of 3,558 fans.

With a win [...]

WorSharks new look pays dividends early in 3-1 win over Hartford

By Darryl Hunt - Last updated: Saturday, January 11, 2014

The Worcester Sharks did some roster shuffling over the past week, and at least in the short term it worked out well as newcomer Tyler Gron scored the WorSharks first goal of the game and returning fan favorite Yanni Gourde added an assist on the go ahead tally to help lead Worcester to a 3-1 [...]

An open letter to San Jose Sharks GM Doug Wilson

By Darryl Hunt - Last updated: Thursday, January 9, 2014

Dear Doug Wilson: First off, I’d like to welcome you back to Worcester. It’s been pretty cold here, and most everyone is hoping that it will warm up a little in the near future. Of course, we have lots of New England curmudgeons that think it will never heat up, but there are a few [...]

WorSharks sleepwalk through 8-2 loss to Providence

By Darryl Hunt - Last updated: Sunday, January 5, 2014

The Worcester Sharks ended their five game road trip with a Sunday afternoon contest against the Providence Bruins. Or, maybe more correctly, the schedule said there was a game in Providence because for the most part the WorSharks acted like their road trip was already over as they pulled a virtual no show in a [...]

WorSharks break the curse of Hartford, beat Wolf Pack 3-2

By Darryl Hunt - Last updated: Sunday, January 5, 2014

The Worcester Sharks, playing with a roster even shorter than they had in their lackluster effort in Providence Friday night, showed just enough signs of life to take advantage of a couple of mental errors made by the Hartford Wolf Pack by scoring two power play goals, and goaltender Harri Sateri was near flawless in [...]

Blanking WorSharks, Providence wins 3-0

By Darryl Hunt - Last updated: Saturday, January 4, 2014

The Worcester Sharks, hampered by injures and recalls and forced to dress 8 defensemen, played most of the game like 18 guys that would rather have been somewhere else and it showed on the ice as the Providence Bruins easily defeated the WorSharks 3-0 at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island in front [...]
