They won? They won! Hallelujah! Right back at it tonight as the Sharks take on Calgary. A huge game to finish the road trip as one team can claw back to the top eight in the Western Conference playoff race.
San Jose comes off a strong effort with a 3-2 victory over Edmonton last night at Rexall Place. Team Teal got off it’s power play schnide with two goals from Joe Thornton (he didn’t shoot it, he passed it into the net) and Logan Couture on the man advantage. The team played well and a solid victory was made.
Calgary has been in the thick of the race the whole time, has been coming on strong. And with the likes of veteran scoring talent of Jerome Iginla, Olli Jokinen, and Alex Tanguay, it’s the play of Curtis Glencross that is catching everyone’s eye. Glencross has scored a goal in seven consecutive games helping the Flames to stay in the thick of the playoff race.
Last time these teams met, it was San Jose winning in a shootout 2-1. In fact all three games earlier this season have been one goal games, with the Sharks leading the season series 2-1.
Nothing like a huge game against a long time rival. LET’S PUCKING DO THIS!
One week from today is the #SharksTweetup at the Shark Tank. This is a gathering of Sharks fans on Twitter to meet and greet in person. With the game at 7pm, we will start up at 6pm. Join the fun!
