What was that madness on the first? 6-1? Are you kidding me? Was that for real? It was, as it turns out, since the Sharks, somewhat predictably sat back in the second and part of the third and let the Oilers creep back into the game. Smash their faces into the ice, then offer them a heater and some aspirin. Those are my boys! A full 60 minute game is still elusive, but the season is still young. Still though, we can't ignore the domination of the Sharks in the first. What an explosion. What Vlasic scores on you, you're having a TERRIBLE night. Tonight, Devan Dubnyk was having that kind of night. Get that man a stiff drink. Boyle, Teeth, Patty, Patty, Teeth, Vlasic, all scored in the first to make the game a hilariously unbalanced 6-1. The Oilers had a choice at that point, crawl into a hole and die or fight back. They chose the second option and did alright. They got one goal back in the second on a 5 on 3 PP and then another goal in the third. Yakupov got his first NHL goal for the first goal, (and first Oiler goal) of the evening. Congrats kid. If you want a first NHL goal, play the Sharks. You will score. It is the will of the Hockey Gods. The ice looked odd in Edmonton tonight. Lots of water, lots of snow, cut up to all hell. Apparently there was a concert last night. Messy, messy looking ice. Didn't seem to impact the game too much though Edmonton got booed off the ice at the end of the first. During their home opener. Ouch. Thornton's pass to Patty was siiiiccckkkk. Soeaking of, Patty is a beast. He always has been. Love those awkward brows on skates. Not a bad second outing for the Sharks though. The got a nice win Sunday against the Flames (which I did not see coming. Since when do games against the Flames go well?) and kept the momentum going tonight. Sharks have been looking good on the PP. PK wasn't terrible either. Nice to see some improvement in those areas. Let's hope they keep it up. Nemo has said he plans to step up his game. So far so good. He had 26 saves on the night and only looked a little shaky once or twice. Now if he'll start talking to his D, we could have something here. Next game is THURSDAY at the Tank! 7:30pm start. Tune in or come on down to the Tank and enjoy some Sharks hockey!
