That Mengele conversation and all those nazi comments wasn't that far off mane!

This game is going to be tough and difficult. We will play some great hockey in some moments, but let's see if that's enough. Expect Joe T to be angry and on fire tonight.
Actually Eye Spasmer is Dan Boyle. Haven't you seen him on the bench?
That would have been my best bet, but for a second I thought this could apply to PM.. though he is moreso Mr. Blinky.
I know what you mean though, on the bench Boyle always makes these funny expressions... wonder what's going on in his head when he does that... which makes me think one of the more cpu savvy peeps here should get a good pic of it and we could all post his "thoughts." Winner gets.... props?
The team defense is in the most vulnerable spot its been in all year, at the same time they are playing their biggest game of the year thus far. With Blake out, Ehrhoff playing minus hockey the past 10+ games (on one of the Leagues best scoring teams), Luko out and I presume Semenov and Joslin in, this is quite a test. Detroit will press the defense on the breakout and the ice will likely be tilted in the Wings favor, requiring the centres to come back to help the exit play.
Our best hope at winning is to outwork the Wings and get on the PP, but the ref assignments don't support that scenario. So for us to win, Boyle, Vlasic and Murray who has been playing very well the last few games will have to log a lot of minutes, and Joslin will have to log the most time in his young career with regular shifts and show that he belongs in the NHL. I think he can do it. He's seemingly more comfortable each game. We are going to need great efforts from Cheech, Grier, and Ehrhoff and expect the second line to contribute big time offensively this game for us to win.
I think this game is a tall order based on what I noted above. If we win, its not going to be by a big margin. I can't anti-snog in this game, so I'll have to go with a low score and Nabby playing a great game.
SHARKS 3 - 1
First Star Nabakov. Goals by Cheechoo, Marleau, and Pavelski. Last goal an EN by Marleau
We're in trouble here with Blake AND Luko out. Boyle and Vlasic need to have extremely good games. Hopefully Ehrhoff can just be invisible (no PP time pleeeeeeeeeeeease). I'm not worried about Murray right now. This will be a good chance for Joslin to rack up some minutes. Hopefully Semenov shows the steadiness he has showed for parts of this season.
So for the Sharks to win Nabby needs to be godlyke and we need to capitalize on the home town energy. Plus it would be nice if the good Seto showed up too.

By the way, Ehrhoff born christian has been pretty awful always against the Wings. These are just the type of games (against the Wings and Ducks) where the pressure factor is measured. Some playaz crumble unda presha. Like Matt Carle did, always against the Wings. McLaren lost his game, Ehrhoff did the same. Even Scott Hannan was pretty pissed inside his pants, when playing against the commies. These are difficult mutha****in games u heard me. Wings got that experience, routine, they just do thangs. Keeping that puck, moving that puck, putting it to places. Not all players can do that. Matt Carle can't do that, in these big games. He's a loser.
Too baad Blake's gone, cause he can do that, Lukowich too. Luko learned from the best of the best. Not from Eric Roberts though.
But these are the best teams in the league, so anythang can happen. Ain't even no thang. We could win, but the odds are with the Wings, with these lineups and with these injuries, Detroit will handle the PRESSURE better than we do. I'm keepin my eyez on Ehrhoff born christian, Semenov the defense man, and Murray. I trust our other d-men tonight, but let's see how these three amigoses dooz it. By the way, I put my money on Detroit and the tie result. So I think we could win in OT or in the shootout, but not in regulation. I still think the Wings will handle the pressure better and they'll get two points tonight. Let's see how I'ma do my thang tonight, meaning the ladies.
After thinking about how big this game is, we really, REALLY need to win this one. I can guarantee you this is the biggest game of the season. This is the game where we play like it is game 7 of the SCFs. Sharks need to prove they are Cup contenders, if we lose, we show to everyone else how un-intimidating we are in a best of 7, because I can guarantee you, right now we wouldn't win a best of 7 against Columbus, Calgary, Edmonton, Minnesota, and especially Detroit.
Sharks need to absoulutely slaughter the Red Wings tonight.
