A loss to Chicago would put San Jose 0-3 against the Hawks this season.
I am so ready for this game. The Sharks have a chance tonight fully show the world that this team is indeed a heavyweight in the NHL. And there’s one way they can do it.
BEAT THE MOTHER LOVING CRAP OUT OF THE CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS TONIGHT. I’m talking about a beat down that sends Kane home sulking, Toews in angry cat mode, and Hossa feeling like he was back in his first Cup final.
Tall order? Yes. Possible? Absolutely. Likely? Meh…probably not so much.
Chicago beat San Jose last Friday 4-1.
There’s no question that the Sharks can beat the Hawks. The question is, which Sharks team will show up?
Will the Sharks team taking the ice in Chicago tomorrow night be the team that’s always moving, both with and without the puck, the team that scores goals in bunches, or will it be the stagnant team that lacks the ability to get shots through to the net?
Tomorrow night is going to be huge. I don’t want to over exaggerate, but the outcome of this game can dictate the rest of this shortened season.
