Anytime your team loses I think the first reaction is to look at your team and find fault. While I will do that in a post later today I think I first need to give credit to the Sharks for a well played game.
What They Did:
- The Sharks played the physical game I expected but they did not take the penalties that I thought would come with that. They played a smart tough game.
Shut Them Down
- Okay…so did you know that we have some good players on our team? Jason Arnott, Martin Erat, Paul Kayria, David Legwand…any of those names ring a bell? Well if you have been watching this series they have done a great job silencing them (I know that Leggy and Kayria helped on Suter’s first goal).
Big On The Blue
- Was anyone reminded of a Red Wings team that doesn’t like to give up the blue watching the Sharks last night? They were tough to get by and we could not get anything going because of it. In the third when the Preds needed to come back they only allowed SIX shots on goal!
- Preds goalie Tomas Vokoun had to be seeing pucks and teal in his sleep last night because that’s all he saw during the game. They shot the puck well and kept shooting it…from everywhere. They out shot the Preds 41-20.
Great game Sharks!
