Finally! The end is near! After two and a half weeks, the San Jose Sharks nine game tennis road trip has reached it’s ending point with today’s game in Minnesota. After last night’s 6-2 loss to Nashville, they are 60+ minutes of hockey away from finally going home to rest in their own beds. However, the task at hand is to get two much needed points against a Wild squad, who once led the NHL, now like the Sharks scrambling for their playoff lives.
2-5-1 on the road trip isn’t going to calm anything down, but I look at it as a panic in the crowd with the team trying like crazy to calm everyone down. It reminds me of a scene from the great movie, “Animal House” where Kevin Bacon is trying to keep peace.
If you are concerned, let alone freaked out about where the Sharks are right now, you’re not alone. This team needs to come together. It did it in Toronto, get back to basics and get it done. And in a time where Sharks season ticket holders have their first payment for playoff tickets due, a lot hangs in the balance with one quarter of the season left.
Minnesota will be a tough opponent and you know Devin Setoguchi and Dany Heatley will be trying to send a message one more time to their former team that they made a mistake in trading their services away. As for San Jose, whatever it takes from here on out. There is no more letting up. You would have to think that Doug Wilson’s cell phone has been ringing off the hook about deals. Which may mean today’s game could be the last for some in teal. If you want it, play like you want it.
Game time is 3pm, so bring the friends over for a pre-Oscar party! LET’S PUCKING DO THIS!
