Joe Pavelski

So we could play the Kings. Or the Yotes. Or the Hawks. Oh, and possibly the Preds.

"They're fisting out there, we'll fist too."

Yes, they actually said this before the Giants game today. And then they bumped the orange fists with the World Series ring. This was worse than the children chanting "DP!" at the Isles game I went to. :(

Giants torture resumes with two walk-off wins at home (including the classic Brian Wilson blown save). You're welcome.

Sharks clinch 2nd in the playoffs with a win over the Yotes tonight, and Ducks clinch 4th so we're not meeting them in the first round (thanks, Kings). Who we play against is dependent entirely on the outcome of the Red Wings/Blackhawks game. There are 4 possible opponents:

  1. Phoenix, if Chicago wins in regulation or OT.
  2. Nashville, if Chicago wins in a shootout.
  3. LA, if Chicago loses in regulation.
  4. Chicago, if Chicago loses in OT or shootout.

Given that it's a meaningless game for the Red Wings, scenario 1 seems to be the most likely. I'm okay with a Phoenix series. Our record against them this season is 5-1, and we only lost the 1 game because we were practicing our PK and then suddenly noticed halfway through that it wasn't a PK practice, but an NHL game.

Assorted Logan-related trauma:
Logan - "(Joe Thornton)'s going to find the open spot, he's going to find me"
Randy - "Logan Couture getting his stick ready for action"
Brodie - "Did Logan Couture just blow a kiss to Heatley?"

I'm glad the Sharks didn't suck because lastcatastrophe was at the game tonight. :) Still can't quite believe that the regular season is over for us.

I shouted for all of the Sharks goals, but I really screamed when I thought JMFJ scored a goal cos' he's been waiting on his 100th NHL point forever. It was actually Ryan Smyth's goal but JMFJ got the secondary assist (Donuts got the primary, which is fitting) so he still got his 100th point. I kind of scared myself with how excited I got for him...
