Oh, hi again Todd
So, it's the Sharks tonight and the Wings will definitely need to be less anemic than against the Kings to win this one, because the Sharks are hot right now. Same lineup as against the Kings except for Leino out, May in.
The Sharks are second in the west with 44 games played, 63 points and a record of 28-9-7. Their last ten games they are 9-1-0, so yup, they're shit hot.
I expect Evgeni Nabokov to start and his stats are as following: 38 GP, 24-6-7, a 2.31 GAA, .923 save percentage, 2 shutouts and 6 PIM. Considering his usually mediocre standards it seems like he's having a great season.
Everyone posts pictures from the movie Jaws, so I thought I post the Bond character Jaws. He scared the bejesus out of me when I was a kid.
Joe Thornton leads them in points with 48(!), followed by Heatley (47), Marleau (45), Boyle (33) and Clowe (30). Their goals leader is Marleau with 28, followed by Heatly (25), Thornton (11) and Clowe and Setoguchi (10 each). Their leader in plus/minus is Marleau with +17, followed by Thornton (+14) and Heatley (+13). On the other end of the scale we find Nichlol (-6) and McGinn (-3).
Keys to the game
- Can Howard follow up the Kings game with another great game?
- Can the Wings limit the Sharks's scoring opportunities, especially for their top line?
- Can Pasha and Z create some offense?
- What will Helm do to amaze us?
- Can the Wings play a better game?
