Puck Drunk Love:
Usually our broadcast bloopers involve a typo or an error in a graphic during an NHL game. This time we switch things up, highlighting an incredible slip of the tongue during Comcast SportsNet's coverage of the Sharks and Avalanche on Feb. 26. Where exactly did Joe Thornton have the puck? To be fair, the sentence blurs a bit together here. Clearly, the intended word was "stick" but the "s" seemed to get lost after "his", making it sound like Thornton used a certain body part to play the puck. Add in the "in and out" reference earlier in the video and you have a classic blooper. (H/T Reddit Hockey) [follow]

This is why it's always important for announcers to enunciate words. At a recent Sharks-Avalanche game, just listen to how Sharks analyst Drew Remenda describes this replay involving Joe Thornton. Because "his stick" can blend together and actually sound like something else. Something else that would be pretty disturbing to see on the ice!

On February 26th, during the San Jose Sharks-Colorado Avalanche game Comcast SportsNet’s broadcaster had a bit of a slip of the tongue. Clearly he meant to say “his stick,” but it blended together a little bit more than he would have liked and it came out “his d*ck.” I gotta say, it would be much harder to play hockey that way.

The San Jose Sharks may be relieved to end February, but they'd like to do it in positive fashion.
Taking the ice at home against the struggling Detroit Red Wings should help.
The Sharks go for back-to-back wins for the first time this month on Thursday night when they attempt to continue their home success against the Red Wings.
San Jose (9-6-3) has gone 2-6-3 this month...
The Red Wings hold out for a much needed 2 – 1 shootout victory over the San Jose Sharks. A very, very defensive game at both ends of the ice made this almost the lowest of low scoring games. The Red Wings’ only power play of the period was not converted on thanks [...]
