I got better things to do with my money and my time, then to see a "professional" team that won't even play the basics of the game of hockey.
And that is just another reason why Niittymaki should be in net for game six. Niemi turned it over on the first goal and that was his fault. The third goal, yes a turnover, but a shot by Penner from way out that Niemi saw all the way and whiffed on.

Yes, they need to start better with the puck management but the Sharks problems in the last four games have been that and their goaltending. Quite simply, Niemi is a part of the problem right now. He's not the only problem but he is most definitely one at this point.
