Sharks clinch playoff spot with LA Kings' loss in Edmonton

Sharks clinch playoff spot with LA Kings' loss in Edmonton

BOX SCORE

Although it hasn’t been a smooth ride lately, the Sharks officially punched their ticket to the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs on Tuesday night by virtue of the Kings’ 2-1 regulation loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

The Sharks are currently hosting the New York Rangers, looking to snap a six-game losing streak in regulation.

The Kings’ loss gives the Sharks back-to-back appearances in the playoffs after a rare miss in 2015. Last season San Jose advanced to its first-ever Stanley Cup Final, losing to the Penguins in six games.

Since 1997-98 the Sharks have made the playoffs in 17 seasons. Only Detroit, which has been officially eliminated from playoff contention this season, has more (18).

San Jose is aiming for its first Pacific Division title since 2011.

 

Kerr makes NBA history with Warriors' win in Houston

Kerr makes NBA history with Warriors' win in Houston

Steve Kerr continues to re-write the record books.

The Warriors' 113-106 victory in Houston on Tuesday was Kerr's 200th win of his brief coaching career.

The milestone victory comes in just his 238th game as a head coach, making him the fastest coach to 200 career wins.

Hall of Fame Bulls and Lakers coach Phil Jackson held the previous record at 200 wins in 270 games.

In Kerr's three seasons as the coach of the Warriors, the team has won at least 60 games each year. Before the current three-year run, the Warriors never had a 60-win season in franchise history.
