At one point this season things were so bad for Tom Preissing that his coach figured the second-year defenseman needed to watch a few games from the press box. Ouch.

The Sharks/Preds series is tied at 1! I was a little concerned by the first period of the first game, because the Sharks looked so awful, but luckily, they went back to normal for the rest of the game. It's a good thing they have all this practice being crappy during the season so it didn't bother them. ;)

Hopefully both teams will take less penalties for the rest of the series. Despite killing of all the penalties today and scoring 3 PPGs (WTF?!!), I would rather avoid a special teams battle as it seems to me like one big crap shoot where the Sharks are concerned. :P
