Sharks V Coyotes. Oh, Will the Worrying Every Stop? Edition
Once again the Sharks face off against the Coyotes and once again Sharks fans are left wondering what to expect. The 'Yotes always seem to have the Sharks number. Maybe it's the fact that they're a divisional opponent and we see them a lot. Maybe it's the fact that the Sharks get cocky when the play the traditionally low ranking 'Yotes. If this game was being played in Glendale, I'd say it might be the dry desert air or the copious amounts of golf. Whatever it is, the Sharks need to find a way to immunize themselves against it. That's for sure.
Ok Couch Tarts fans, here's the news you've been waiting for. We have a little experiment going on right now. Starting today, you, yes you, can own your very own little piece of Couch Tarts. The items we're offering are shown below.
Aren't they wonderful?
Now, here's the catch. What you see in this image is all there is. As I said, it's an experiment. If there's a high demand, will make more, but if these don't move, this is the first and probably last such offer you'll see for awhile. All these fantastic items were made with Gray's art by another fabulous seller on Etsy. She the shipped these items to Gray, who is now ready and waiting to ship them to you. Yes you! As a special offer for local fans only, I will refund your shipping if you will be at any of the following games and wish to pick up the item in person: April 4th, April 7th, April 9th.
There's a spot to leave a message for sellers when you buy. Just let me know and I'll refund your shipping charges. You must be able to meet before or after the game for in person delivery.
Post Game Recap:
If you just watched the first you probably figured the rest of the game was a snooze fest. I decided to do some work starting in the 2nd because of the 1st. Bad decision. The 2nd was rolling and it didn't stop.
Anyone get word on the linesman who was hit 9 seconds into the 1st? Is he alright? he skated off, but he was down for awhile. sjsharks.com to the rescue. He's alright and came back part way through the first. That was a nasty shot he took to the back of the head. Good to hear he's alright.
Patty went out after 3 shifts in the second. No word on why or what was hurt. When asked, Coach McLellan answered the "upper or lower body" question with absolute silence. That's rather terrifying. He did say he thinks he's day-to-day for now, but who knows.
Wacky night for scoring. First Joe Pa rings on off the post. It was about half a millimeter away from in. Then Kurt Sauer decides 109 games was enough time between goals and gets one past Nabby. Everyone goes pout city. Then, miraculously, Jody Shelley, yes the Jody Shelley, gets one past Bryzgalov to tie the game.
Whoo, Cavanagh gets his first NHL goal! Go kid (even if you are 27. Still a rookie) Whoo! Sharks up 2-1.
That lasted until Lukowich accidentally put one in his own net trying to keep it out. It happens. Game tied 2-2.
Lots of questions about Patty midway through the second. He only played 3 shifts, then disappeared. No word then, little word now.
Joe Pa scored the game winner on a PP in the third. Dude has been on fire lately.
Moen and Winnick went in the second. Moen won, though it was kind of a weak fight.
Sharks set a franchise record for points tonight, with 109. woot!
Lots of talk about the President's Trophy. Not sure which aggravates McLellan more, injury questions or questions about beating Detroit.
