The Sharks eked out a 3-2 victory over the Canucks after a shootout Tuesday. It was the Sharks’ second-straight victory, which is great given that it was the first time that happened this season in a month that doesn’t end with -anuary.
But, by most accounts, San Jose stole the game from Vancouver. Thanks to rare goals from, of all people, freaking Scott Gomez and Adam Burish, gutsy penalty killing late by Brad Stuart and another sensational performance between the pipes by Antti Niemi, the Sharks managed to leave Rogers Arena with two points despite being outplayed throughout most of the game by their opponent.

Brad Stuart hasn't given anyone reason to regret that he's a Shark again, but last night he made a particular splash with some extra gritty play and a charming grin to show off the dental work he got during the game. Stuart made an excellent ambassador for a team that had just scrambled to a shootout win after dropping a two goal lead.
