Tonight really felt like a playoff game; I'm not usually as nervous as I was lol. It was my friend's first game, and thankfully tonight was a great game. I'm not sure if it's been posted online, but Clowe's new "lousy" ad is one of the best ones ever made.
It was a really exciting game for being 1-1 after regulation. Lots of chances both ways with both goalies being stars. Niemi made a few saves to bail out the defense and the defense made some great plays to prevent some beautiful chances. Lots of good pressure for the sharks and with the exception of one bad series of decisions/bounces the pk looks like it is improving. The pp still looks a bit weak though.
Last night felt like a playoff game. While I love scoring, if we get games like that where it's back and forth action with some great chances and a fast pace, I'll take the defensive battle any day. I'm not sure what it was, but this team has really woken up out of the doldrums of that slump they were in. It really does seem like this team works in streaks. Win a bunch of games, lose a bunch of games, then win a bunch of games. Hopefully they win a bunch of games at the right time.
