San Jose coach Peter DeBoer said Tuesday that the Sharks have had to work for everything they have accomplished this season. After an inconsistent start Authentic Nail Yakupov Jersey , the club reached 100 points for the first time since 2014.

However, through three playoff games, they have barely broken a sweat.

The Sharks look to complete a four-game sweep of the Anaheim Ducks in their first-round Western Conference series on Wednesday night at SAP Center in San Jose.

After taking the first two games in Southern California, San Jose scored four power-play goals and rolled to an 8-1 rout in Game 3 on Monday night at the Shark Tank.

San Jose has outscored Anaheim, 14-3, and is 6 for 17 with the man advantage in the series.

“One night it’s (Logan) Couture’s line. One night it’s (Joe) Pavelski’s line. One night it’s somebody else,” DeBoer said. “I think our group has played well the entire three games, just different lines have stuck pucks in the net at different times.”

Couture and Pavelski are tied for the team lead with five points apiece, while Evander Kane has a club-best three goals. Seven Sharks each have a minimum of three points in the series.

“You want to finish it at home in front of your fans, especially against a rival,” Couture said. “We know it’s going to be loud. We know they’re going to be energized.”

With the benefit of all four lines rolling, Martin Jones has been nearly flawless in net. The 28-year-old set a franchise postseason record for most saves in a regulation contest with 45 in Game 3 and has stopped 98 of 101 shots in the series.

“It’s not just the saves, it’s the timing of the saves,” DeBoer explained. “When you make saves at key times or the right times of the game Patrice Bergeron Jersey , you just have that confidence as a group to try and make some more plays or take a chance here or there.”

Jones is one playoff win short of becoming the second player in team history with 20 victories, joining Evgeni Nabokov (40 postseason wins between 2000 and 2010.)

With their backs to the wall, the Ducks would appear to have no option but to come out flying in Game 4. Or do they?

“We have to take a singular approach, and focus on the first shift, first period,” coach Randy Carlyle said Tuesday.

A key to staying focused would be forgetting how Anaheim has gotten to this point — especially after a game in which it set a club record for most goals allowed in a playoff game.

“You can’t think about that game anymore,” defenseman Hampus Lindholm told the Ducks’ official website. “That’s in the past now. We just have to go out there for the fourth game. It’s going to be a do-or-die game for us. We’re going to compete as hard as we can.”

Lindholm is one of three goal-scorers in the series, along with Rickard Rakell and Jakob Silfverberg. Ryan Getzlaf, Anaheim’s all-time playoff scoring leader with 120 points, has just two assists.

“We’ve got to create more chances and score more goals. And tighten up defensively,” defenseman Francois Beauchemin told the Los Angeles Times.

John Gibson has a 4.17 goals-against average and .882 save percentage in the series. While it’s almost a certainty that he’ll get the nod once more, backup Ryan Miller is 7-2-1 with a tie and a 1.78 GAA and .948 save percentage in his career in San Jose.

Game 5, if necessary, is set for Friday night in Anaheim.

EAGAN Seth Jones Jersey , Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings will show off their shiny new quarterback in the season opener, formally turning over the on-field leadership of a team built for Super Bowl contention to Kirk Cousins and his fully guaranteed $84 million contract.

The player directly in front of Cousins, his importance not to be understated, will likely be making his debut with the Vikings at the same time. Brett Jones has been in Minnesota for less than two weeks, but he’s on track to start at center Sunday when the Vikings host the San Francisco 49ers. He’ll have as much on his plate as anyone wearing purple.

“Kirk’s an excellent communicator. He wants things done a certain way, and you’ve got to be able to try to the best of your ability to try to emulate what he wants,” Jones said. “Anytime there’s a new center, you want to try to have consistency, so I’m just doing what I’m told and making sure we’re all on the same page so whoever’s in there can adjust and play well so the Vikings can have success.”

Pat Elflein, who performed relatively well as a rookie, just began practicing with the team this week. The Vikings have lost their primary starting guards from last year, Nick Easton to injury and Joe Berger to retirement. So, for all the enhancements the Vikings have made to a roster they reached the NFC championship game with last winter, the offensive line lost more than it gained over the offseason.

“It’s not ideal Zdeno Chara Jersey , but it is what it is,” Cousins said. “We’re not going to dwell on what we can’t control. We’re going to focus on what we have and making the best out of it, and I’m excited to build a rapport with Jones and the rest of the O-line so that hopefully we can develop a continuity as the season goes on.”

Elflein wore a helmet and full pads at practice Wednesday, but he was listed as a limited participant on the injury report. Considering Elflein was just removed from the physically unable to perform list four days prior, coming off ankle and shoulder surgeries earlier in the year, the chance of him being cleared to play against the 49ers is slim. That leaves Jones, who was acquired in a trade on Aug. 26 with the New York Giants , in the center of attention.

“We’re going to coach him all week and then he’s going to play center in the NFL like he’s done for a lot of games already,” Cousins said.

While there’s some justifiable concern about using a center who’s never snapped the ball to Cousins in a game setting, the chemistry between Jones and the guards and tackles on either side of him is probably even more critical.

“Each person relies on the other person,” Jones said. “If one person does one thing bad on offense, it’s a glaring tackle in the hole for a loss. If one guy does something bad on defense, you might have a backer or a safety or somebody come down and cover you. On offense, one mistake can be a big mistake.”

Danny Isidora Mike Green Jersey , who started one game at left guard as an injury replacement for Easton last season as a rookie, has also been taking turns at center. Coach Mike Zimmer said recently he thinks that might actually be Isidora’s natural position.

“He stays in balance pretty well there. He keeps his hips square. He’s got some power on the double teams,” Zimmer said.

NOTES: Cousins was chosen this week as one of six team captains for the season, with left tackle Riley Reiff, tight end Kyle Rudolph, defensive tackle Linval Joseph, defensive end Everson Griffen, and linebacker Anthony Barr. … Cornerback Mackensie Alexander, in line to be the primary slot man in the nickel package, did not practice Wednesday because of an ankle injury. Cornerback Xavier Rhodes (hamstring) and Reiff (foot) were listed as limited participants.
