But more importantly, what a night for the Sharkies! Patty all grown up, first with a baby, and now with 200 goals. I cry inside (and outside). And a couple of babies with their first goals! Marc-Edouard stepping in on the PP and doing what he did at the Rookie Tournament. He got over 25 minutes of ice time, the most among defensemen! Pavelski with some nifty moves and good defensive work too, getting back to prevent Anze from finishing his deke-o-rama and saving a goal. He got over 16 minutes of ice time, 3+ minutes on the power play. Not too shabby for his NHL debut.
It's times like this that I really appreciate Ron Wilson for giving guys chances, no matter how young or inexperienced they are, and rewarding them for playing well.
[Edit: Each team last night had a Thornton, a Brown and a Murray. Heh.]
