Tonight is a VERY critical game for the San Jose Sharks. They finished #1 in the Western Division and #2 overall (30 teams). They are down 0 - 2 games to the Anaheim Ducks (#8 in the Western Division)in this first round of NHL playoffs. They have the best home record overall and yet lost both games. The next two games will be played in Anaheim.
If they don't win tonight the odds are pretty high they won't even make it to the second round. They have the talent to make it to the next round but I think they lack the confidence. The SJ Sharks veteran players who have been to the Stanley Cup Playoffs are not pulling their weight as they should be, the younger players are scoring the goals and making the hits.
I'm rooting for them all the way!! Let's Go Sharks!!
