From about the 10th minute of the first when Braun scored the first on the Sharks looked like a different team. The exception was that failure to clear the zone that led to the Pens' second goal. Jones stood on his head at times but the Sharks looked more confident.

Sportsnet made me pretty sour last night with their opening sequence before the game, you know where the usual Tom Tompson (b0undless) excellent displays were shown. Last night the NHL/Sportsnet decided to treat the game as a mere marketing tool for Hollywood, turning the introduction video into a giant commercial for Independence Day 2.

Big win for the Sharks last night, but they still need to win Game 4 for me to believe they have any chance. But at least they played a little better. They still don't look like the same team that dominated the Blues.

It's looking like this series will be done in five. Sharks totally outplayed last night.

Also, looks a lot like Kessel is going to win the Conn Smyth and that would be the cherry on top of it all. He was crucified for his play Toronto by the media for no reason - especially by that loser Steve Simmons.

Crosby or Murray for CS.
I won’t disagree if Crosby wins it, but I still believe Kessel deserves it at this point.

I just think Crosby has made a bigger impact. He has 3 GWG. His faceoff % is insanely good. He is second in points, behind Kessel. I just feel that Crosby just has a bigger impact on the team as a whole over what Kessel brings. With that sad, I don't really care if Kessel won it either. Actually Kessel winning will give me more joy as Steve Simmons stomach eats itself from the inside as all of the anger and frustration boils over. I'll get him a hotdog!

I'm surprised the Sharks were able to push the series to a sixth game. Now if they can just win one game at home...

The Sharks had 37 shots directed at net. The Pens had 47 on net, 77 directed at net.

Sharks got ridiculously lucky. They got dominated and won. It happens, it won't happen again if they play like that.
