There's been a lot going on in Sharks land lately, Not Kyle being sent back to Woostah, Nitty on a conditioning assignment that has everyone talking, Stalock getting his first start since his leg was sliced open last season, SATURDAY in Stockton with the Thunder, ( gogogo if you can!), White off the IR, Clowe on, Wingles out through at least the All Star Break, Desi's got his bell rung, but seems to be ok, Jumbo's struggles on the Power Play are starting to be acknowledge by coaching staff, and Boyle is finally skating like a man with two working feet again. There is unfortunately little to say in regards to last night's loss the the Senators, other than perhaps that I am quite confident that Liberace's bike seat had way more energy than the Sharks did on the ice last night. (and a helluva lot more glitter). Only Jamie McGinn's flight through the boards is worth mentioning.



It was not the zamboni door, as many have postulated, unless San Jose has suddenly become home to the world's smallest zambonis. The hallway in question is actually the one through which the Sharks enter at the start of the game. The zamboni doors are located, logically enough, behind one of the goals. No blue coats were harmed when McGinn's body came flying through unexpectedly. Dude behind the door didn't even look phased.

Last night's preformance was otherwise pretty dismal. I am guessing that since the Sharks had to use TWO wins to grab the W on Tuesday, they were short on wins last night.

The blown call in Tuesday night's game against the Flames was perhaps one of the worst blown calls I have ever seen in the small sample size of history that I am choosing to remember right now in order to make my point about the call being absolutely, dreadfully, horrible. How a dude 80 feet away is allowed to make a game changing call like that is beyond me. Any call on a potentially game ending goal like that should be reviewable. The loss of the OT win resulted in one less tiebreaker for the Sharks. How can something with that much potential impact not be reviewable?

We certainly have the technology, and Toronto already has a war room dedicated to the very act of reviewing goals, so why not extend  the number of scenarios that can be reviewed? Reviewing every goal would get to be excessive, even in the case of disagreements, but in cases where you wave off a goal for suspected interference, shouldn't you make damn sure it was interference in the first place?

The good folks over at Tonight's Healthy Scratches make a pretty good case for additional plays being added into the currently reviewable lineup. As they mention in their article, Drew proposed a great idea of allowing coaches to use their timeout for the purposes of asking for additional reviews. It's ridiculous that teams have absolutely no recourse in these situations. While I understand not wanting to slow the pace of the game down, it's time that the NHL changed the way they handle questionable decisions, especially on plays that are game deciding.
