Well, the tennis road trip is finally over, and the result was a 2-6-1 record and a whole new rash of injuries and struggles. Can’t look back, gotta go forward. Tonight, they will play at home (yes, finally a home game!) against the Philadelphia Flyers, who need points as well.
San Jose will attempt to recover from jet lag as they finally arrived back in the Bay Area mid afternoon Monday. Arriving with them are T.J. Galiardi and Daniel Winnik from the Colorado Avalanche. Sad to see a hard worker in Jamie McGinn go, but you knew a trade was going to happen eventually. A shake up was needed, now it’s time to execute.
Once this team gets healed up, hopefully it can get it back together. Granted, how far will they have to catch up? The time is now and critical, there will be no rest period.
Team Teal has won the last eight meetings, outscoring the Flyers 39-22. If goaltender Antti Niemi gets the start, it will be the first time since Game 6 of the 2010 Stanley Cup Final. Reports and tweets suggested that Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson proposed a Niemi for James Van Riemsdyk deal but fell through before the deadline passed. An interesting thought if that is the case.
San Jose is back at home and in teal. Well, I guess they have that going for them… LET’S PUCKING DO THIS!
