This thread is just an excuse to boast about our San Jose Sharks, who two or three weeks ago did not look like playoff material. Well, they’ve just won eight straight and are headed for the playoffs, and their first match will be against Nashville.
And we got to see that eighth game win yesterday! Anaheim at Sharks, 6-3. That was one screaming, high flying game. I got to see our wonderful Jonathan Cheechoo score a hat trick, despite his being hurt in the third period. He came back and scored it against an empty net in the last three seconds of the game. Joe Thornton, Nils Ekman, and Vesa Toskala were also brilliant in bringing about the win. Wee-ha! Best hockey game I ever saw.
