News that I completely missed last week: Sena Acolatse is back in the Worcester lineup, has been since March 1st. I may be inattentive but I think that is exciting, awesome and a good thing for the Sharks.
Worcester only played two games since last Monday, a relatively leisurely schedule for the AHL. Saturday, Sebastian Stalberg scored the only first period goal to give the Sharks the lead over the Providence Bruins. The Sharks had a fair chance to take a two goal lead when James Livingston was awarded a penalty shot but Bruins' goalie Niklas Svedberg stopped that. The Bruins came back in the second to score two power play goals and take the lead away. A couple of minutes later, James Livingston tied the game back up. In the third, the Bruins retook the lead and it wasn't until 19:00 of the regulation that John McCarthy tied it again. The game went to a seven-round shootout that the Bruins won with goals from Craig Cunningham and Trent Whitfield. The one Sharks shootout goal was scored by Denny Urban.

Saturday’s Stars @ Sharks game was certainly the most suspenseful 3 goal lead I can remember watching, but my memory is slipping lately. It was a shame to end it with a crummy, unproductive 5 on 3 power play, but the rest of the game was well-managed. The Stars didn’t bring their best to the game but everyone will have another go at it tomorrow. Fingers and toes crossed and all that.
This morning’s lines, for what tween-game-day lines are worth, were the same as in Saturday’s game. The Joes skated with Marleau, Havlat with Couture and Clowe. Your bottom six, hard to precisely label with numbers were: Wingels-Desjardins-Winnik and Galiardi-Moore-Mitchell.
On defense we saw White with Braun, Demers with Burns and Boyle with Vlasic. Murray, though chipper as all get out, was skating with Vandermeer so he is by no means a shoe-in to play tomorrow, not yet. The fifth line wore orange today. They were Ferriero, Winchester and Handzus.
