San Jose Sharks Play Pretty Well, Get Crushed by Predators


In a shocking turn of events, the San Jose Sharks actually played a pretty good game. They started beautifully, and they kept up the offensive pressure all night long, but the Predators capitalizing off mistakes, and a mean Finnish man named Pekka Rinne shutting down the offense with 42 saves, let the Predators run over the Sharks by a score of 5-1. But the Predators have given us a very valuable lesson to learn tonight, and for that I am thankful.

With the Sharks winning games against good teams, and being in a playoff spot, they’ve given fans the thought that “Maybe the Sharks can win against the big teams, and with no pressure on them, they can make some damage.” The Nashville Predators tonight showed us that is crap. This Sharks team is exactly like the 2012 Sharks team, the team that lost to the St. Louis Blues in the first round.

Sure, the Sharks might make the playoffs due to a weak Pacific Division, but the facts are simple. This is not a good hockey team. The only team I see them beating in the postseason is the Ducks because of the way they’ve played them during the regular season with a 4-0-1 record, but even then I wouldn’t bet on the Sharks in that series. It’s time we all accepted the hard true facts, Sharks fans. The Sharks aren’t a good team, and won’t be going far in the playoffs, if they even make it (which with the Kings behind them it’s very possible they will not). So thank you, Nashville! Your absolute beat down of the Sharks tonight helped us realize the truth about this team.

P.S. Special shoutout to Doug Wilson for making the biggest move of their offseason the signing of John Scott. Phenomenal job, Doug. Your job security is off the charts right now.

P.P.S. That was sarcastic. ^
