Well I thought being shutout at home by Anaheim stung. Losing 3-2 to Phoenix in a shootout stings alot worse. The Sharks played a great game, but lost on a few lucky shots and because their power play failed to put Phoenix away. When Doan scored, all I could say was, this better not happen. The Sharks deserved to win that game. They played their best hockey of the year. They were flying on the ice, throwing their bodies with bone crushing force, and did not back down from Phoenix. Their 3rd period was their best all season. The Sharks can take alot of positives from the game, but man it still hurts to lose that way.
Clearly their power play needs serious work. They had 5 minutes, and then got a 5-3 and only could score once during that opportunity. Then the Sharks had 2 power play opportunites in OT. Again, I will keep saying it until it happens; there needs to be less passing and holding the puck, and more shooting on the power play. It honestly cost them the game. The Sharks had too many chances to put Phoenix away and they could not get it done.
I am still stunned that the Sharks lost that game the way they did. Well Sharksbuzz is tomorrow and I am looking forward to everyone's thoughts and comments about tonight.
