LOL You guys summed it up pretty well, we played well enough to at least get a point. Hornqvist should have scored on that 2 on 1 Sully put a perfect pass to him... and then Setoguchi takes it down and score on us... Then that softy.... ugghhh.... very disappointing loss

Hey guys, first off, Sharks were lucky to win that in regulation. Your guys played hard. Also, as much as we hated Nichol when he was with Nashville, holy crap, the entire Sharks board is in love with the guy now. Same with Jed, not that we hated him, but the effort and character these guys have are a huge addition.

Finally, how would you grade Goc so far? Has he been for you what he was for us: good faceoff guy, good defensively and no hands?

I told everyone that Nichol was a good addition for you guys at the time, and no one believed me. The problem for us is that we had too many players just like him, and overall I think Jerred Smithson is a better player...so while it hurt to lose Nichol, I'm not sad that his spot is taken by guys with a little more offensive ability...Santorelli, Hornqvist, even Thuresson.

As for Goc, it's weird...the guy has had no less than 8 clean breakaways this year, and every time, he manages to beat the goalie...but can't finish. He's got decent moves, even looking pretty good in his shootout attempt...but it's like luck more than hands. Defensively and faceoff wise, he's been great...and he's even a decent forechecker. He's managed to create some offense when playing with some of the younger forwards with ability. Overall, for the money, I'd say most of us have been happy with him. We'd like to see him convert a little more, but overall..no complaints.

I'm telling you, Dan was mesmerized by those sexy 3rd jerseys. Didn't stand a chance.

The thing that made this game so frustrating is that we played SO WELL. Maybe the most evenly matched Sharks\Preds games I can remember. Greiss wasn't stopping any of those goals(okay, MAYBE the Goc one, but it was a weird sort of cross-body shot, and the Sharks defender was partially screening). At the same time, he DID make some nice saves, and we did fan on some pucks that most likely would have ended up in the net if they had connected. It's just so frustrating that we keep having these miscues that inevitably end up in the back of the net. You can see it happening in real time, and you KNOW that it's going to happen. When I watched Smithson peel out of the circle and leave Pavelski open, I knew that somehow Marleau would get the puck to him and it would be a goal. It stands to reason that at some point either our luck will improve or, heaven forbid, we'll stop having these blatant lapses.

As an aside, I can comfortably say that at this point, Hornqvist is our most important forward. This is what we had our hopes up over last summer.

Surely it's time the Preds gave one of the goalies (Rinne if I were making the call) a long run regardless of results? This platoon cannot be good for either of them to get into a groove.

Sully passed it to Hornqvist 3 feet off the ice. Sully is just making wrong move after wrong move offensively right now. The perfect example is the play you just talked about. Sully should have saucered the pass but he just line drived it at Hornqvist. I could be mistaken but I don't believe we have converted a breakway or 2 on 1 this year.

Thuresson was called out on NHL Network by Gary Green for his knee on knee shot to Jed Ortmeyer

9:10 to go in the 3rd, for those that want to go back and check what he's talking about

who was called out by who for doing what to who cares? Just kidding. Really though, I dont remember seeing that play. I didnt even remember that Ortmeyer was playing for that team until they showed a close up of him on the bench.



Im still upset about this one.

We'll get through this. Imagine how they feel. I think SJ got the momentum to swing their way after they came after Hornqvist twice. They got angry, frustrated, and desperate. It paid off.

I agree... I thought Rinne would get them this week after being #2 star of the week last week. But Trotz apparently thinks otherwise.

After having maybe the worst day of my life yesterday I just wanted some good news, and I was definitely disappointed with the regulation loss. A point would have been great with me. Waking up today and looking back on it, we played one hell of a hockey game against a bigger, tougher, more skilled team. Had Ellis stopped one of the two (I was watching at a bar on a bad tv so maybe it was more than two) soft goals that would have at least been a point.

really only the one was soft. my initial thought on Setoguchi's goal was that it was soft, but after seeing it again and realizing Bouillon tipped it, I can forgive that one.

Green spent 5 minutes giving the Sharks a first class ass kiss and then spent 20 seconds on the Preds-- the only topic was Thuresson's dirty play. As if I wasn't already completely pissed last night, seeing this on the highlight show while exercising this morning caused a minor stroke. I can now only type with three fingers on my left hand.

I'm still sick about the last goal- Ellis gave his best 2007-08 Chris Mason impersonation. That goal was a complete lack of focus goal and killed a great road effort by our team.

Because Rinne couldn't possibly be injured or ill at all?

Well I'm glad I decided not to watch. Gee, someone on On the Fly saying how dirty our players are, there's something new.


They played so well. But the Sharks didn't exactly play well themselves. After the Preds took the lead the Sharks seemed to just flip a switch. They were a different team and really just took the game away. It seemed like when SJ scored, they felt they had the lead and they would win. But then we kept coming back and tieing the game, but SJ still seemed like they didn't care if they went to OT, they would still win. But when we took the lead, the Sharks kind of woke up and were a different team.


After the Anaheim game, I didn't know what to think about this road trip, they just didn't play well at all. But the last 2 games they played so well and deserved 3-4 points instead of just 2. If they play this way in STL, we get the win.


If we could just...get...a...couple...of...goals from Erat and Legwand we could have a few more wins.

That's about as likely as Kate Beckinsale inviting me out to dinner.

I can't remember what game it was when a guy ended up in his net and it looked like Rinne was smashed by his leg/foot wrenching his shoulder/neck..........
this makes sense to me why Ellis started.

Hope he gets better... wonder who will be in goal tonight?
