The Sharks know what to change about their game to win the playoffs, they know playing a totally clean game just ends up with early golfing.

If the Blues don't figure that out quickly, Sharks are going to grind them to a series loss. It's not about the Sharks cheating, it's about the Blues not cheating.
This was a really different sight to see from the Sharks. It looked like vintage Detroit out there when the Sharks were still baby brother. The core has tons of playoff experience and the new comers (Havlat, Burns) are itching to show what they can do in the 2nd season. Completing agree with this.

Murray played a really good game. From the time he was hit, he played physical and tossed Blues' players around. He even had several nice plays involving stick checks and (more noticeable) some puck-moving plays where he spin-moved or used patience to move the play.

My favorite play (other than Thornton wanting to captain fight) was Burns tossing Perron after a whistle with Murray sending Oshie to the ice seconds before.
