Kukla's Korner Hockey

San Jose Sharks fans were in a nasty mood Sunday night, loudly booing the Canadian national anthem before the start of Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinal. The Sharks are playing the Edmonton Oilers. Annemarie Martin had barely began singing O Canada when many in the sellout crowd of 17,496 began booing. The sound was so loud it nearly drowned out Martin. As the song progressed the booing decreased and some Shark fans joined in singing the Canadian national anthem. There was no apparent motive for the booing - just a questionable expression of the fans' dislike of the Oilers, who won the last two games in Edmonton to tie the best-of-seven series 2-2.
