Itʼs over. The Sharks are done, finished. The St. Louis Blues are going to the Stanley Cup final for the first time since 1970 and they — not the Sharks — could win the first Cup in their history. I do like reading and hearing the opinions of fans and pundits. Hey, everybody is entitled to their opinions. After the 5-0 Game 5 beatdown Sunday, those opinions are understandably negative towards the Sharks. We donʼt need to go over the game. We all saw the Blues dominate the Sharks. Even though I think social media is poison and is the sledgehammer that destroyed any chance of civil discourse in the world I came across a tweet from Owen Nolan. The former Sharks captain and a guy who knows a little something about beating the St. Louis Blues was on Twitter after Sunday’s game. “Bad loss forget it move on,” he wrote. “No time to dwell on it. Focus on what needs to be done to win the next one. Go@SanJoseSharks.” Itʼs the playoffs, the time of year when a loss — no matter how discouraging — is just a loss. Donʼt get too high, donʼt get too low, though cliched is entirely appropriate. Especially because the Sharks are still in it. They got knocked down Sunday, but not knocked out. As Rocky Balboa told his son: “But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!” I love that speech. In order to get “some winning done”, The Sharks have to make some adjustments.They have scored one goal in the last periods. Itʼs easy to say and a lot harder to do but they have to find a way to get some pucks past Jordan Binnington. I know, Thank you, Captain Obvious. The Sharks need to be more willing to score ugly goals. The last two games have not been difficult for the Blues rookiesensation. It is not an easy task. The Blues defensemen are a big, hard- nosed, shot-blocking bunch. The Sharks are going to have to pay a heavy price in order to own the important ice. But you canʼt win if you donʼt score. Get people and pucks to the net. Stay in the fight to create second and third chances. The Sharks had a very good first period Sunday. They had more than their share of offensive zone time. They established a strong forecheck and put the puck on net 11 times. Find a way to stick with that. The Sharks are a verydifficult team to play against when they get their forecheck and possession game going. Manage the puck. The Blues are a very good forechecking team; they pressure relentlessly. However the Sharks havecoughed up the puck too often in their own zone. Close quick support will aid in proper puck management and exiting theD-zone. In these playoffs, the Sharks are 10-3 when tied or trailing in a series. They have have won four elimination games. They have played and succeeded through nearly 15 periods of elimination hockey. They have taken the hits and kept moving forward. They took the hits in Game 5. It didnʼt go well. But they are still in the fight.

Champ Bailey made history earlier this year when he became the first Broncos defensive player to be selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Monday, Bailey achieved another milestone when he was voted to the Broncos’ Ring of Fame, the first player in team history to earn those two honors in the same year. “I don’t even know how that’s possible,” Bailey said on a conference call. “With all of the Hall of Famers and Ring of Famers we have, I’m a little surprised and taken aback.” Bailey will be the 33rd member of the Ring of Fame. He played 10 years (2004-2013) for the Broncos and will be honored during the Broncos’ Oct. 13 game against Tennessee. Also on that day, Bailey and owner Pat Bowlen will receive their Hall of Fame rings. “I have to be honest — I expected it at some point, maybe, but at the same time, it’s out of my hands,” Bailey said. “When it happened, it still caught me off guard. I’m so grateful that the Broncos consider me part of their family and are willing to put my name on the stadium.” Bailey said he has a “few” favorite memories of playing for the Broncos and the first one he mentioned was the January 2012 overtime playoff win over Pittsburgh. “A couple of weeks ago, I was watching the playoff game against Pittsburgh when we beat them in overtime on the first play,” Bailey said. “I was thinking about the moment when DT (receiver Demaryius Thomas) ran through the back of the end zone and I met him in the tunnel and I hadn’t felt like that since maybe (January 2006) when we beat the Patriots. Those are moments you just don’t forget.” Leary progressing. Right guard Ron Leary continues to do early-practice work, but is sitting out team drills. He sustained a torn Achilles last October. “Hopefully Ron makes a full recovery from his injury, which I think he can and he will,” coach Vic Fangio said. “Everybody has been positive from the medical people and talking to him. We’re hoping Ron makes it and hopefully we see him partaking by the last couple practices before the break and he’ll be ready to go full in training camp.” Don Barclay took the first-team right guard snaps for Leary. The Broncos’ right guard in 2017 and left guard last year, Leary so far has moved back to the right side to make way for rookie Dalton Risner. Approached by The Denver Post after practice, Leary declined to answer questions. Fangio hosts coaches. Fangio hosted 130 high school coaches representing 64 high schools from 25 Colorado cities/towns at practice. Included were Haxtum coach J.D. Stone and defensive coordinator Marc Bornhoft. Located 30 minutes east of Sterling, Stone and Bornhoft coach six-man football and drove 2 1/2 hours for the opportunity to watch. “Just seeing the efficiency and (how they’re) detail-oriented,” Bornhoft said. “Some of the drills we can translate to what we do.” [related_articles location=”right” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”] Said Stone: “We try and steal a drill here and there. Efficiency is the biggest thing because our time is very limited with our kids.” The six-man football field is 100 yards long, but 40 yards wide. Stone said he expects 20 kids to participate in football this fall. “We run pretty much the same blocking concepts in our interior run game because we’re only losing a couple of tackles,” Stone said. Footnotes. Eighty-eight of the 89 Broncos players under contract were present for the fourth OTA. Only cornerback Chris Harris (contract dispute) stayed away. “I stay out (of that),” Fangio said. “That’s the business side of football. I deal with football business.” … Safety Shamarko Thomas did not participate in practice. … The workout was moved to the indoor facility because of weather that produced snow flurries. … Former Colorado defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt, who coached with Fangio in San Francisco, attended practice. … Cornerback Isaac Yiadom (shoulder surgery) continues to be limited.
