No damage was done there, but he got caught chasing another Shark behind the net. That left Jonathan Dahlen alone in front of the net to tip home his first NHL goal. 1-0 San Jose. Then, about two minutes later, Ben Chiarot decided to finish a check on the half-wall in the Sharks’ zone and the Sharks were able to put together an odd-man rush. And wouldn’t you know it, the rookie, Dahlen, has his second NHL goal just three minut
