Sharks well on their way to another disappointing loss, and they wake up again. I think I need a mood stabilizer. I shut off the TV a couple of times in anger during the game, then the Sharks roar back, get a couple of decent calls, have the clock expire literally hundredths of a second before the puck goes in, and then show up Bobrovsky in overtime. Two fantastic moves by Clowe and Couture, both going to their “bread and butter”- deke to the backhand. Clowe goes for the roof, Couture the five hole.
Again I’m impressed by the Sharks mettle. And again I’m disappointed they have to get their butts kicked for a while before they figure out what to do. On a road trip, against a Stanley Cup finalist, I’ll give them a little more latitude. But I still feel the same way about tomorrow as I did about tonight- the Sharks could get murdered, we just have to wait and see.
