3/23/10 - San Jose @ Minnesota - 7 PM CDT - VS (HD)

Get to know your opposing fanbase (San Jose Sharks Edition):
-San Jose is the largest city in the Bay Area by population with just over one million people.

-Apparently the team's middle name is "Not so awesome."

-The Sharks have lost five games in a row, including a 5-1 loss to Edmonton on Sunday.

-Nothing makes people happier than cake.

-They have more faith in Derek Boogaard than the State of Hockey, as San Jose fans can envision #24 picking up a hat trick.

-The origin of the name Sharks comes from the large number of sharks living in the Pacific Ocean. It also beats being called the Blades.

-They make colorful nicknames for the referees.

-Would like to see two girls wearing (respectively) nothing but a Sharks and a Wild jersey go at it.

-Play at the HP Pavilion, also known as the "Shark Tank." It also looks a lot like the old Met Center but has to beat an arena called the "Cow Palace" (where the Sharks played in their infancy).

-See Backstrom getting a shutout or two.

-Come out to a giant shark head, which then may or may not eat opposing teams.

-Anti-snog, whatever the **** that means.

-Have been one of the most successful teams this decade, winning four Pacific Division championships and one Presidents Trophy.

-Great googly-moogly of fail.

-Mascot's name is S.J. Sharkie.

-Are doing many different things in order to will their team to win. Also apparently the Wild should be freaking out by now.

-Were formed by taking half the Minnesota North Stars' lineup in a complicated franchise matter that was made to save NHL hockey in Minneapolis and is most likely why they have been unable to win a Stanley Cup.

In Wild news, Backstrom is starting for the first time since suffering a groin injury right after the Olympic Break, Owen Nolan is questionable with the flu and Clayton Stoner will be out the rest of the year recovering from that hernia surgery.

We have to win 10 games to have a shot at the playoffs, I see us losing tonight, but I think Wellman gets his first goal tonight.

Hey, we're #12 goddammit. There's a chance, even the Versus guy tried to lie about it.

At least the announcer was realistic about it.

I really wish they were wearing the green jerseys on national television.

Things we can be happy about:
One, we tried real hard and two, we're still friends.

And there's the Richards-Sharks-U connection. I thought it would have taken longer than ninety seconds.

Wellman doesn't know his linemates too well, I really think he's going to be a great player, totally impressed me so far.

He's been one of the few things keeping me going about this team.



Oh dammit Pavelski!
1-0 San Jose

He was trying to say oh yeah he's trying to find his game, but we would send him down if we didn't think he'd be claimed.

Getting a little pressure on Nabokov, which needs to happen.

Kobasew's been the Wild's best player for the past week. He's really clicking, unlike the Minnesota blue line.

Well, that was a beauty of a shot by Pavelski. It sucks that we weren't able to pop that one in, it was a nice save my Nabokov.

Yeah, maybe we're seeing what Fletch saw in him, he has scored 20 goals the last two seasons, so hopefully he can match that next year.

I don't agree with this penalty, either way, PP Sharks.

Why does Versus have the Western Conference seeds up like this is March Madness?

And looks like Scott "killed" a Shark. Two minutes for boarding.
