Game goes to a shootout, tied 1-1. I'll say the Sharks win just to mix it up, final score listed as 2-1. Marleau has the lone regulation goal. As with most shootout games, this one is so dull it's nearly unwatchable. I fall asleep during the 3rd period.
They switched refs. Fraser out, Watson in. Wow. Watson will be senior.
Watson is attentive to safety and does tend to swallow the whistle in the third. He is just above middle on skating. He calls moderate.
Any ideas on why?
Would you say its because the league would rather have Watson in the game since they think he will be a better fit for the type of play expected, or is it more of a logistical thing (travel, health, etc)?
I had a dream that the Sharks won 5 - 1 with all the players I named and that I won a super Snog. But they were playing the Ducks. And that night it was officially announced that team Canada would have Thornton/Heatley/Marleau as the starting line.
