Are the Sharks choking in the Stanley Cup Final?

A bad sign for a team with a history of choking.

This is not a good look for a team that has built a reputation for choking in big series over the past several years.

This morning The Score's Navin Vaswani took a comprehensive look at the offensive production from the San Jose Sharks over the course of the first 4 games of the Stanley Cup Final, and it was a damning tale of invisible stars for the team.

The Sharks leading scorer at the moment is none other than Jonnas Donskoi, not exactly a household name, with three points, and the Sharks big three, Joe PavelskiJoe Thornton and Patrick Marleau, have all struggled producing two points in Thornton's case, and even less from the other two.

When one considers that many expected the high scoring Sharks to exploit a relatively weak Penguins defense, this has to be viewed as an utter failure from an offensive perspective, and despite making a run all the way to the Finals, the talk of the Sharks being big game chokers is rearing it's ugly head once again.
