The Other Paper:
The gloves literally flew off both Dan Boyle and Corey Perry's hands after the San Jose Shark's defenseman took offense at his one-time Team Canada teammate Perry's stick to the ribs late in the third period of the Shark's 4-0 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.
Boyle flipped out after they batted all game but it seemed like known agitator Perry's contact on a shorthanded odd-man rush was the real turning point.
"On the short-handed goal, [Perry] sucker-punched me in the face," he said. "It just kind of carried on from there."
See if you can spot the punch to the face that Boyle retaliated for in the video below.
BEST OF MAXIM
Dan Boyle and Corey Perry got into a good old punch-flinging fight in Wednesday night’s Avalanche-Sharks game, but the scrap hardly had the best punch of the night. While Boyle and Perry duked it out in the third period and got their respective penalty minutes, the real fun came a few minutes before, when the Sharks went up 4-0. As San Jose took off down the ice on an odd-man rush...
Pretty outstanding effort from the Sharks these last two games (how often have we said that since January?), outscoring the Ducks, the second-best team in the West right now, 9-3.
Maybe Ducks winger Corey Perry, a recent recipient of a $69 million contract extension, was sick of it by the time the Sharks scored what proved to be the final goal of Wednesday night’s contest, a shorty...
Nice shorthanded goal by Tommy Wingels to put the Sharks up 4-0 over the Ducks, but watch Corey Perry with a needless shot to Dan Boyle who was following the play.
No penalty on the play but Boyle and Perry did go at it soon after this goal.
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Clowe has a full no-trade clause. The San Jose Sharks have to run this thing by him in order to get a deal done.
Which means if, for whatever reason, Clowe doesn’t believe a certain team is a good fit, he can nix it. Although, in the same vein, Sharks GM Doug Wilson did well by Douglas Murray in the move to Pittsburgh, the sense is that Wilson...
Antii Niemi made 27 saves for his second shutout in two nights and the San Jose Sharks won their third straight game in regulation, beating the Detroit Red Wings 2-0 on Thursday.

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Antii Niemi made 27 saves for his second shutout in two nights and the San Jose Sharks won their third straight game in regulation, beating the Detroit Red Wings 2-0 on Thursday. Joe Pavelski and Brent Burns each scored for the third consecutive game for the Sharks, who are on their longest winning streak since starting the season with seven straight wins...
Add Logan Couture to the long list of players that have been victimized by Paval Datsyuk’s craftiness.
Thursday night the magician Datsyuk was able to knock San Jose’s Logan Couture off his feet without even touching him. Instead Datsyuk used one of his patented dekes to take Couture out of the play and totally embarrass the San Jose forward on his home ice.
It is a good thing the Ducks have built a nice cushion in the Pacific Division, because right now, they are tanking. Bad.
After a marvelous and unexpected start to the season that has included two defeats of Chicago, the number one team in the NHL, Anaheim has now managed to string together a four game losing streak that does not look pretty.
Really? This is the same...
Pavel Datsyuk could dangle his way out of a straight jacket. Thursday during the Red Wings-Sharks game, Datsyuk got fancy in the corner against Sharks center Logan Couture. Couture was left grasping for air as he landed on his tuckus.
Fox Sports Detroit’s Mickey Redmond absolutely loved it, and rightfully so.
Happy birthday, Logan Couture.
Pavel Datsyuk is here to remind you how slippery that ice can be:
UPDATE: Logan Couture was cool about it:
Hey @datsyuk13 really bro? On my bday...cmonnnn.. Someone fix that ice in the corner..youtube.com/watch?v=LwyVi6…

The Detroit Red Wings hope to sweep their Western U.S. road trip when they face off against the San Jose Sharks (10:30 PM EDT, FSD/CSN Bay Area/97.1 FM) tonight, but they face a particularly dificult task as the Sharks have handed the Ducks back-to-back losses, are desperate to improve their place in the Western Conference standings and plan on making good on game #2 of a 7-game...
The Detroit Red Wings face quite the task in attempting to both sweep their Western U.S. road trip against the San Jose Sharks tonight (10:30 PM EDT, FSD/CSN Bay Area/97.1 FM) and keep the Sharks off their backs for a simple reason: while the Wings spent Tuesday relaxing and Wednesday getting back to work, the Sharks did the exact same thing to Anaheim that the Wings did on Friday...
