Well, it used to be that the Sharks weren't allowed to beat the Wings in the PO's. At least we down to your not allowed to sweep the wings.
Thereís a lot of things wrong with this country, but one of the few things still right with it is that a man can steer clear of the organized ******** if he really wants to. Itís a goddamned luxury, and if I were you, Iíd take advantage of it while you can.

the sharks need to end this in 5 because vancouver will most likely end their series in 5. the sharks and red wings are evenly matched so if they blow game 5, it will be another cross-country trip to detroit for another hard-fought game and god knows we don't want to see game 7. the sharks will most likely win this series but it's not just about winning. it's about winning as quick as possible so your next opponent don't have too much of an advantage over you.
Personally I'm pretty happy despite the loss. The Sharks played well and had very few passengers, and they battled back from being down 3 goals. It's disheartening to see them lose because of some very iffy officiating, but at the same time the Sharks did have a chance to put the game away twice in the third on the PP but never even got set up.
I'd be disappointed if they lost because of a lack of effort, but that was not the case tonight. Can't win every game, so if they have to lose I'd like it to be done like tonight.
