I wasn”t aware the Sharks’ new goal was not to reduce the inconsistency, but to decrease its period. The Sharks went from their worst performance of the year to their best during an intermission. What I would give to have been a fly on the wall for that ‘Rudy’ speech. Whatever was said, it worked. I imagine it was this:
T-Mac : Hey guys, just a thought. TRY PLAYING HARD.
Joe Thornton : <takes shirt off> hmm yeah.
Patrick Marleau : Oh yes. Absolutely. Try hard. Uh huh.
Dan Boyle : Jeez, we suck. We can play better than this.
Ryane Clowe : Dude, I gotta shave this mustache off. It’s getting ridiculous.
Niclas Wallin : Hamburgers.
Trent Yawney : THAT’S IT! YOU WIN, YOU ALL GET HAMBURGERS!
Sharks : YEAAAAHHHHHH!
