Just Wondering (NOT A TRADE PROPOSAL)

I was at the game on Saturday and I heard some fan yell that the sharks will never let Ovechkin score. I thought about this for a bit, and then wondered if there has ever been a case where a dominant player, could not score against a particular team. I do recognize facts like being in another conference as one factor, but I just thought it was interesting.


Also, on a completely different topic; has anyone else noticed that the sharks are the only team in the Pacific division who has more goals for than against?

Aye in fact Ovechkin has never scored for the Sharks. We're one of two he has never scored against. The Wild were one, but he scored against them last game. They ran a statistic on that, and it was the Sharks, Wild, and some other team he had never scored against.

I'm not sure about that but our team loves to give players in their first NHL game ever to let to score. This is so predictable that I nailed a prediction down on when this one kid would score down not just by what period, but within the minuite (I think I was off by what, 45 seconds of my guess?)

In fact we were the last team that he had not even scored a point against. He changed that Saturday night.

I think there is a semantic issue here... some people are saying that he still has not had a goal against the Sharks, and others are saying that he finally got a point (assist) against the Sharks. Just wanted to point this out before further confusion ensues.

Yeah... still a cool stat. I believe there would be lots of teams that he's only played 3 games against the way the schedule has been with teams of the opposite conference.

Only people unknown and beginning there careers in the NHL should score on us and do at will at times.

this is so annoying too. because it ALWAYS happens. the announcers bring up the fact that the player on the opposing team is in his first game or soemthing and then boom, he tallies a goal.
