Just look at this that sits atop the internet previews of this game: CANADIENS (30-28-6) at SHARKS (40-14-9). Ugh. The Sharks are 1st in their division, 2nd in their conference, 3rd in the league. Habs are 3rd, 7th, and 20th respectively. Nice way to start the Cali swing. OK then. Let's go with the "Habs always play to the level of their opponents" meme for this one. On to the Jaws quotes!
Well, if we're looking for a shark we're not gonna find him on the land - 10:30 PM start in San Jose's Pavilion named for a Pavilion computer. Game is on TSN. Habs have not won at said Pavilion since 1999. This is the only meeting between the teams this year. Sharks rallied on Tuesday from 4-0 down against the Devils to get to 4-3, but couldn't get the tying goal and lost.
You're certifiable, Quint. You know that? Yeah, yeah, yeah. - Slightly Saucy appears to be a Sharks and Flyers blog (?!?) run by two pretty funny ladies. That teal background is hypnotic, and possibly certifiable. And Fear the Fin is the Sharks blog on the interwebs, in case you didn't know.
It's really a miracle of evolution - your hot Habs are DarCHe! Métro! Pyatt! Tremble at the names, Shark fans! Joe Thornton is your hot Shark, though you wouldn't know it from most of his Olympic play. Some dude named Devin Setoguchi had 2 goals in that Devils loss.
Come on down here and chum some of this shit - Pleks pointless in 3. For the Sharks, Marleau is pointless in 5 and Heater has just one point in his last 4. Nabokov is 0-2-0, 3.58, .868 in his last 2 games, and that doesn't include his Olympic disaster.
I'll drink to your leg. Okay, so we drink to our legs - Squid's and The Urologist's legs did not even make the trip. Mara is day-to-day. Goaltender not yet announced as of this writing.
Here's to swimmin' with bow-legged women - Shark Porn!
I would appreciate a lot of screaming in the comments to keep me awake. This game is way past my bedtime.
