Game 35: vs San Jose, 12/29

Hey, remember that one time when we ripped their hearts out? That was fun.

One hell of a test for the surging Stars, win this one and think of the confidence levels in the locker room, if they aren't high already considering how they've played lately.

GO STARS GO!!!

the sharks are on a bit of a skid lately, of course that just means they're losing in shootouts rather then beating teams 5-1... If Dallas wins this one they're tied for 8th in the conference, it's going to be a hard fought game and if the Stars get a few bounces I think they could come out on top

GO STARS GO

Yeah, I was at that game.

I was also at the game where we ripped our own hearts out (Turco's misfire in San Jose).

With Brunnstrom hurt (Lower Body/Wearing Protective Boot) Parrish will get a chance to return to the lineup.

Petersen-Richards-Eriksson
Neal-Modano-Lehtinen
Ott-Ribeiro-Parrish
Barch-Sutherby-Wilson

I hope the Stars win, but I'm rooting for Parrish failing again. He'd already be in the AHL if he didn't score a hat trick in his first game. He’s mediocre at best in every aspect of the game except goal scoring, and he isn’t even doing that.

I think the game will with 1-1 with 30 seconds or so left in the 3rd period. Then when a puck is dumped it, Turco decides to fake out the incoming Marleau, but accidently plays the puck off his skate which leads to the game winning tap-in. Something along those lines.

Silly Caseman, that'd never happen. Not in a million years.

Tied 1-1 vs. the Sharks that late in the game? Madness!

If it wasn't a late hit and a hit from behind.

I hate the sharks commentators, such ****ing homers

The sharks probably aren't the team to be taking undisciplined penalties against..

I can't believe how sucktacular Turco has been. What a freaking loser.

It was a boarding, but the flailing Shark made the hit look worse than it was. If Ribeiro's skinny body can do that to you, you're either embellishing a hit or you've got some working out to do.

God defense, that's exactly why you can't back all the way in and yet not mark anybody. And I still haven't figured out exactly where Richards was going on that goal.

Edit: Whoever Niskanen's partner was put Niskanen in a totally no-win situation by leaving him with a 2-on-1 in front of the net to pressure the bad-angle guy.

OR, it could be that Turco cannot stop a point shot if his life depended on it. Defenses break down. That's why there are goalies to clean it up. Nabby made three saves so far when the Sharks broke down. Turco 0 for 1.

Stop acting like he isn't struggling. Your schtick, or whatever it is, isn't funny.

the shots pretty much reflect the play in the first, it's too bad Dallas had the first goal go against them, it could have easily been the other way around...

They'll come out hard and tie it up they've come to play tonight

It's not a schtick. It's putting blame where I believe blame is due.

Defenses break down, but they shouldn't break down as much or as badly as the Stars do. I will keep ragging on the defense until they get better, either through better play or trade.

Turco is definitely struggling, but for the millionth time, I believe his struggles are a symptom rather than the underlying problem.

It's easy to blame the goalie. That doesn't mean it's correct.

They've been alright, but aside from the Ribeiro chance, they haven't really created quite the chaos in front of the net that the Sharks have. The PP was just.... urgh, but on the bright side, the PK was very nice.

Boyle has scored 4 of the Sharks 8 goals against Turco this season in 6 periods.
Reason it's only 6 periods not seven, since Turco was pulled for the 3rd last game.

Nah, that makes it more awesome. Yes, I'm classless.

Lots of good things happening in that period overall, especially considering we're only at half Swede power. I especially like the way Ott is attacking on the forecheck and then making plays with the puck. Neal too.

God, I've lost track of the number of Scandanavians again. Four Swedes and a Finn, or am I missing a Swede?

Also, Ott and Thornton need to fight again cause I say do. And cause it's funny.
