Just like the end of every game during this stretch where the team suddenly showed some intensity and scored a few goals to make the games closer than they really were? If you want to say they're going to turn their play around and start winning starting with tomorrow's game, that's fine. The time when a team rights the ship is generally pretty arbitrary. To be inspired to believe that based on the end of last night's game is setting yourself up for disappointment.

That is what was being done here. More out of fanhood than logic. But people like to rain on my parade and I just don't want to hear it. If you want to be negative thats cool but this is my team through thick and thin and the homer in me has do support them 100% no matter how theyare doing. I AM USED TO LOSING (being a Philadelphian) but I look past it and hafta root for my teams.

The "we aren't playing well and will keep sucking" and the "bench Briere, Fire Stevens, Kukkonen won't play" threads are above and below this one.

That was what was being done here until you based it on 25-30 minutes of last night's game. Everyone else was just making some baseless predictions - which are always fun. Support them all you want, crazy things happen in sports. Just don't base any high expectations on a little more than a period of good play.

sharks will have played 4 games in 5 days and aren't playing very well

I'm agreeing with the 5 straight prediction - then we get Downie back - then Briere finds his game - then we get Lupul back - play strong for the rest of the regular season get the 5 seed play either Ottawa (win in 6) or Montreal (lose in 5)

I'm optimistic though

I already predicted we don't lose until St. Patrick's Day.

Let's hope you're right because as of right now the Flyers are out of a playoff spot.

I really can't see your 8 gamer stretching out to 9. The Sharks are in complete disarray and the wheels have totally fallen off the bus. You guys are good enough to win 5 straight, I unfortunately see it starting tomorrow.

Dont worry about it, as I said, you can start the 5 game winning starting with the Panthers game.
