A sweep would have been nice but I'm in no way panicked about this series. They still have to win 3. The Sharks 1. Just gotta find a way to be the hunter right now. I don't know. I'm not too upset about this loss. It's just the way the dominoes fall. If this game was another shelling like last year, then I'd see a reason.
Sharks are spoiling me...with all their comebacks this year, I pretty much never count the Sharks out of the game now. Previous seasons, being down 3-0 would be automatic game over, but with this year's Sharks...3-0 is simply tough....rather than impossible. Hell, even 4-0 is nothing
Well I know that part. But any interesting tidbits that I can't get from a box score?
- clowe beat up abdelkader. lol but its not put down as a fight in PIMs.
- wellwood with a similar play to set up boyle
- bad refs allow 1st detroit goal (should have been offside) during early surge by det.
- mitchell still has no hands how does this guy hold onto a stick?
- crippled clowe had 3 assists
- ferriero goes "offside" on key SJ 3 on 1 rush.
- marleau = new tin man?
Marleau has been absolutely pathetic these playoffs. I don't know what this guy is doing because he is even more "slow" than usual.
Of course the Marleau homers are gonna come out of the woodwork and defend him again.
Not much of a Marleau homer...but from what I've noticed in previous playoffs at least...he usually takes a series off and comes back with authority the next. He was very ehh against LA, and completely MIA this series, but if we get to the WCF...hopefully that's when he'll turn it around!
so i guess im glad i missed this game given all the ref talk, sounds like one i would have broken a remote over.........now that a few hours have passed, was the refereeing something that actually cost us the game or did we not do enough to win either way?
Marleau could've dived to prevent the second goal. WTF him and Setoguchi were doing there, I dunno.
this. i was absolutely screaming at him on the tv about this. marleau needs to sit a game. hes not providing any offence, and hes a liability everywhere on the ice. im a supporter of patty but holy **** has he been bad...
