Out of time: Sharks @ Flames

I guess Couture had a talk with the puck ambassador.  It was as if the puck leaped in his direction, first chance it got, full of apologies for the rude behavior of its Edmonton kin.  This resulted in a very early lead for the Sharks.

Drew mentions that Galiardi “got comfortable” with his new team very quickly.  That reminds me that, in my histrionics about losing a young dragon when McGinn was traded, it took me a while to notice that Galiardi was also born in the Year of the Dragon. 

The thing I miss most while watching games on delay is the company of fellow fans online. I could go to a bar for real life company too, but then I would be watching it in real time which I don’t want to do since the Sharks won last time I watched with a healthy delay.

Point blank

Last night, Benn Ferriero took one shot, got one point, and Antti Niemi blanked the Flames.  No, Niemi didn’t do it by himself, but he gets the special credit for it.

Ferriero’s been kind of quiet lately, but last night he made an effort to point out the obvious: if you can’t hit the target, you need to get closer.

@SharksStats: Benn Ferriero’s 4th career game-winning goal, 3rd this season. All 3 GW goals this season in road games.

The lone goal of the game was Ferriero’s sixth of the season.  It was the only shot he took, if you believe the shot counters, and he took it at point blank range.  I think that might qualify as a teachable moment.  Sounds like McLellan thinks so too:

“We’ve got to get a little hungrier in and around the net, much like the winning goal tonight.” -Mercury News

It was just one goal. It was the Flames. The Flames have been better lately, but they’re still the Flames.

It was just the first win for the Sharks after three losses.

The latest game

The Sharks game against the Calgary Flames was the last one to end last night.  I think it’ unfair to blame them for going to a shoot out.  They also had the latest start time and they were not the only game to go to a shoot out.

The Sharks had some tough breaks in the game, some shots they wish they’d scored on, a laughable goalie interference call in OT.  The Flames had some of the same, so it was even… until that grossly bad call in OT.

Anyway, the Sharks won.

@FearthefInGame:  “Beast mode activated by Brent Burns, who shakes off a defender on the wall before the puck finds Handzus. Torrey Mitchell bangs home rebound”

That’s how they tied it up.
