Risto was awesome. Looked like Pronger Jr. At times.

This made laugh so hard. Thank you!

Caught bits and pieces of the 1st and 2nd, and they didn't look awful. Still, 51 SOG and 46 in regulation? Really tough to win consistently when your goaltender sees that much rubber.

And, wow, Tyler Ennis finally gets a PP point!

I admire thier dedication to fan suffering.

Winning at home? No ****ing way.

Winning on the road? I think these spoiled fans enjoyed that a little too much.

Lets win at 1:30 in the morning so none of them see it.

Although it was hilarious, the conga line defense was one of the worst things I've seen from this team in a long time...it's so representative of them

Rolston must really be trying to shake up the team's game plan

I'm sure the lack of booing on the road is a confidence factor.

Larsson
Girgensons
MEH line in the offensive zone and on the PP
Miller
Stafford getting a goal
Myers played a great game for the most part and was a physical force on the walls
Ristolainen had a strong game
Molson and Hogson in the shootout

Bad:
Ristolainen's penalty and foot speed currently
Stafford and the MEH line defensively
Surrendering the lead at the end

Ugly:
None

"Coach, Jumbo Joe is so good. How are we going to defend him?"

"Lets, run the train on him!"

alright one more....

"feel the rhythm, feel the ride, get on down, it's really really bad defense time!"

The sharks have recorded 50 shots the past 3-4 games. They also have out shot their opponents 2-1. They Sabres were only out shot by about a 1.5 margin. It's not as bad as it looks when you realized good San Jose is at getting shots through to the net.

Man, I just saw the missed goal. Yikes that was bad. We should remember this extra point in the draft lottery.

I felt it was a case where no-one from Sharks figured to protest, and they dropped the puck soon after. Perhaps if someone from the Sharks and/or ref had seen it, they would've reviewed. It took a short while for the Sharks' TV crew to catch up to this.

Lucky break this time.
