YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!

9th never tasted so good!

Ok, ok, I know, it's really nothing to be excited over. The Sharks are still out of the top 8 spots in the West and they still have a helluva hill to climb if they want to make it back in, and STAY back in playoff contention, but they HAD to get this win. There's not time to fart around anymore. You win, or the season ends, and ends soon. That's it.

The Sharks currently sit one point back of the Avs in eighth, with games in hand. (as of right now, the Avs have played 71 games, the Sharks 68) Remember, those games only matter if they win them. They mean nothing if they result in a loss. To really make a run of it, the Sharks will have to pick up their game. They're still too sloppy in the neutral zone, and they'll need to clean that up if they really want to play until June. The lines looked good tonight though. As long as McLellan rolls the four lines like he did tonight, the Sharks have a pretty damn good shot at reviving their post season hopes. In case you missed it earlier today, Puck Daddy had a round table on this very subject. Yours truly even got to participate! Check it out!

Let's keep those "winniking" ways rolling, boys, and get back into the top 8.

Get ready, because this is going to be one hell of a ride.
