Marleau should have to wear this jersey in tomorrow's practice.
That said, Sharks still have a 3-2 lead and can close it out in Detroit. If they are going to live up to the 'something's different about this year's' Sharks, they'll need to learn that they can't sit on a two goal lead and expect things to be OK.
And for the love of Dog... Niemi is a pretty decent goaltender. Too bad the Sharks D and forwards think they need to collapse on him and play his position for him. Wallin pretty much stepped on Niemi trying to stop pucks, and Seto... geez... instead of still skating towards Datsyuk behind the net and eliminating him, decides to SIT ON THE POST next to Niemi and provide the bank shot for Detroit to score.
Marleau took the cake though... had a chance to level the puck carrier but DODGES OUT OF THE WAY, then gets beat from behind on the wall, then wussyfoots a backcheck on Datsyuk which just spins Dats around and makes the gamewinning pass.
Zero points for Pattycakes, zero heart. I haven't seen him use his speed the whole series. He's playing once again like someone poisoned his dog or something. Pathetic.
