Younger Sharks May Have The Advanatage

from Mark Purdy of the Mercury News,

With the Sharks and Detroit tied 2-2, we face the very realistic possibility of the series going seven games. If it happens, that would entail a major back-and-forth cross-country hockey slog. Today’s game at Joe Louis Arena will be followed by a plane ride back to San Jose for a Game6 on Monday. And that would be followed by another potential flight back to Detroit for a Wednesday conclusion.
If you’ve taken careful notes, that works out to three games in five days - sandwiched around two flights across a combined six time zones. Or three flights across a combined nine time zones, if you include the trip both teams made here from San Jose for today’s game.
Frankly, I became fatigued just typing out that scenario. You probably were pooped just reading about it. Imagine if you had to play hockey, too, while icing down your bruised body somewhere over Nebraska both ways. It only stands to reason that the younger team might have an edge.
