Game "Highlights"

So it would all come down to tonight. Do or die for the boys in Blue.  Too bad the Sharks looked like the team that was down 3-2 in this series as they would score just four minutes into the game. The Blues would give the Sharks a breakaway chance that Thornton pulled a Brad Boyes on. Too bad Pavelski was there to stuff it under the pads of Elliott for the 1-0 bad guy lead.

Moving forward to the second period now, when Joel Ward would deflect a Brent Burns shot to make it 2-0 Sharks.

Ward wouldn't be done yet though. In the third period he would score again. This time on a pass in front from Logan Couture that would make it 3-0 Sharks and at that point things were looking bleak.

Well, when it rains it pours, because the Sharks weren't done there...Joonas Donskoi would give the Sharks a 4-0 lead and send fans into a slow depression that this would be the last period of Blues hockey for awhile...

At least it wouldn't be a shutout. Vladimir Tarasenko would finally get his first point/goal in the series. Gotta love Kenny Albert's disappointment on this goal call.

He would add a second goal just moments later.

The Sharks would add an empty net goal and seal the 5-2 victory and the 4-2 series win over the Blues in San Jose. The Blues will head to the offseason, while the Sharks await the winner of the Pens/Lightning game tomorrow night.

From The Twitter Machine:

No..You're crying.

Hitch's postgame.

Troy Brouwer had good things to say about the team and wouldn't mind coming back.

Emotions. We all have them.

Wonder how many weeks they had this fired up and ready to go:


And finally. Thank you ALL for reading my recap's. Or not. Commenting, hating, loving, or anything else. The boss sums it up just fine.

Three Stars:

They were all Sharks. Congrats to them and their long 25 year wait. Hashtag sarcasm. In all seriousness though, congrats. The better team won that series.
