Takes and trash talk from both ALL sides of the NHL's most obscure PATHETIC* rivalry

* Thanks, Kevin Lowe!

Adversity's a funny thing. It either brings out the best in you or it makes you shrivel up like, well, like the Sharks have whenever they get a lead. There's not much to say except that the Sharks have put themselves in this position simply by being unable to properly execute and stay intense for a full 60 minutes. They've become flustered and self-doubting and are forcing awful passes.

So, if they can win Game 6 at home and take Game 7 in Detroit, then you'll know that you've just witnessed a turning point for this team. Otherwise, they'll continue to do their best impersonation of the Ottawa Senators of years past (not this season, apparently).

Some words of encouragement for the boys in teal from the one and only Stan Bush. If you're a child of the 80's, you know you know the lyrics, so sing along. YOU GOT THE TOUCH...YOU GOT THE POWER...YEAH!

Hell, if it worked for the Autobots way back in 1985, it's gotta motivate the Sharks.

Thank you for making visions of Rodimus Prime dance through my head along with that tune.

I prefer White Lion's Transformer theme, but that's just me I guess.

Mike Chen said...

Ah yes, hair-metal Transformers. That'd be great if they skated out of the Shark head to that. Transform from a good regular season team into a good playoff team!

I may have to focus on the Warriors tonight just so I don't cry myself to sleep later. Thanks for this though, it made me nostalgic for many things, not the least of which were the days when I thought the Sharks had balls. Sorry to cut this short but I need to go back to bashing my head into my desk.
