For the second year in a row, the Sharks are staring down the Wings in the second round.  Mike and Doug compare and contrast both the Sharks and Wings teams from a year ago, and make their picks.  A short recap of the first round follows, with some of the Dudes picks working out to perfection, and others not.

      One down, three to go.

    2. Ruben says:

      Almost another goalie steal. Man this team is showing even more resiliance than last year.

      Seriously, the Sharks have played pretty incredible with the exception of G2 against the Kings. Even that game, though, they had more chances but were buried early in the game. Sometime soon, the Sharks are going to get the bounces and it is going to be ugly for the other team.

        Also, can somebody tell me what is it about playing the Wings that makes Jumbo shoot the puck and skate like an out-of-control Mack truck??! Damn Jumbo likes playing the Wings!

      Sharks have a chance here tomorrow to put Detroit a little on their heels. 2-0 certainly isn’t a deep hole but it’s uphill for sure. And I feel confident we can win a game in Detroit.

      Tomorrow could be a huge game for SJ if they can somehow snag the win…..

    4. Patrick says:

      Nuts, only 33 saves for Niemi. So close to a Goalie Steal!

    5. Pher says:

      I’d consider that a goalie steal. Looking for Niemi to give you a quality start there it was. Hope he can build and become better as the playoffs go on. Looking to take one at least in Motown and come back with confidence. Not much luck closing it out at home lately but hope for strong play from our third line and continued success from Niemi.

      P.S.
      Clowe is a beast.

    6. Nick says:

      I disagree on the “goalie steal” thought for this game simply because then I think you have to consider that Howard had to face more shots and make more saves.

      I know I’m splitting hairs here but I think part of the reason Sharks goalies don’t have this “goalie steal” stat on their side is they never have the opportunity to out-perform the opposing goalie. This is because the opposing goalie is almost always going to see more rubber, and therefore have the burden of high save counts, as well as the opportunity to be truly game changing. The Sharks’ style of play simply asks their own goalie to be acceptably good most of the game, and make a few key stops. Great game from Niemi? Sure. Steal? No.
