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, scoring 15 goals in that span after totaling 29 during a franchise-best 7-0-0 start. Going 3 for 51 on the power play in February is one of the major problems. "We're not scoring as much as we'd like, and we're trying to fix that," coach Todd McLellan said.

Clearly, the intended word...

Joe Thornton has the puck on his... what?

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!

Broadcast Blooper: “Joe Thornton has the puck on his d**k”

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.

Red Wings’ Wins Hit Double-Digits, 2-1 Over Sharks

    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 [...]
