Sharks fans seem pretty confident they're gonna score 5+ goals today. Do they even know who Varlamov is?

4-1 Avs Duchene, Landy, McGinn, then Landy again with the Empty Netter.
Couture for the Sharks.

I think it will be a fairly low scoring game, 2-1 Avs.. Duchene and Johnson.

Sharks are built to be an Avs munching monster. We can' beat these guys. Thornton/Marleau with the puck behind the net, pass to a guy in the slot and goal. Repeat ad nauseam.

Excuse me but who are these "Aves" you speak of? You don't happen to mean the Avs do you?

Also love the Anchorman clip

The Sharks have just had a hot offensive start. Thornton/Marleau/Pavelski/Courture aren't going to continue at a 2-3/pts per game pace.

They have a solid top two lines but after that its nothing that impressive. Their defense isn't overwhelming, and their goalies aren't world beaters.

I think the Avs, if they play like have the past 5 periods, will be just fine. It will be a close game 2-2 or 3-3 that goes into OT maybe even a shootout.

Avs 3-2 OT. Sharks will be tough to beat in the tank, but we have Varly, they don't

The Sharks are a big team.

I'm thinking 3-2 SJ (mostly because Varly keeps it close). Hoping I'm wrong though...

5-1 Sharks, Mcginn scores the lone Avs goal.

I hope SOB is in for Hunwick tonight, Sharks are too big.

Not only that, but we no longer have RoR to assist Boyle in scoring on his own goaler.

8-1 Sharks. ROR misses mother russia to much and so signs there for the rest of the year to deal with his homesickness. Because he's injured for the season Downie starts drinking with Jones, which sends Jones in a spiral rivaling the start of last season. McGinn continues to aim for the posts, because he loves that sweet ping, despite Sacco getting Joe Sakic himself to help the kid. Staz starts getting depressed, his late night phone calls with MBP start lasting later and later into the night, until he just stops sleeping all together. Gabriel is needed by the Avengers to save the world and so misses the next two months. Varly's groin explodes when EJ concusses himself on Varly's knee. Sensing the team needs him to step up, Matty Duchene spins so hard around a defender that he actually creates a temporary blackhole which sucks him and Greg Zanon's beard into an alternate dimension. And the Avs continue their epic tank for Seth Jones.

Didn't Greiss play well against AVS last year ? Or I mixed something...

Anyway, I say 3:2 AVS with Varlamov making 40+ saves.
