I hate non-sequiturs, but hey, two points is two points.
San Jose finally won a game by beating the lowly Colorado Avalanche 3-2 that went to round four of the shootout. The two big stories of this game? The secondary scoring finally got going, and let’s face it, Semyon Varlomov was pretty fantastic tonight.
First off, how about that Sheppard-Burish-Galiardi line? Wow. James Sheppard is beginning to look like a legitimate threat in San Jose’s bottom six. And once the Sharks get Wingels back, I could see a very solid third line of Sheppard-Handzus-Wingels. And again, Jumbo showed why he is one of the best with that sick set up on Logan Couture’s goal 25 seconds into the game.
