New series starts today in Texas

23 Feb
Sharks vs. Stars

Sharks face the Stars today in Dallas.

Alright, so the Sharks got swept in their season series with Chicago. They’ve split games with Anaheim and Phoenix. But they have yet to experience two pivotal division matchups yet this season. That changes tonight when the Sharks take on the Stars in Dallas.

Dallas has some new faces on their roster, bringing in Derek Roy from Buffalo and token old guys Jaromir Jagr and Ray Whitney. Plus they have guys who can just score goals (see: Jamie Benn, Loui Eriksson).

Honestly, I haven’t followed Dallas at all this year, and have no idea how they are doing. I think they’re only a few points behind the Sharks. And I’m pretty sure Kari Lehtonen is injured right now too, because he’s on my fantasy team. Needless to say, I have nothing of value to offer here. This game just doesn’t seem to have the same intensity as in years past.

The Sharks managed to get the better of the Stars last season, but this is a new season. Let’s do this.

(Inaccurate) Prediction: Sharks take this one 4-2, getting back on track offensively with goals from Couture, Havlat, Pavelski, and Wingels.
