How are we at game number 65 already?!
For a team that's not doing so hot, Columbus always seems to give us trouble. Remember the last time we saw them? Right before the Olympic break. The Sharks lost 3-0. Rick Nash made the Sharks his bish. He does that. I swear if there's a game against the Sharks and he's in it, he'll score. I suspect that if he was ON the Sharks he'd still score against them. He's just that good at it. In fact he's so good I'm pretty sure I've written those sentences before. Deja post vu.
After some relatively weak starts to the first two games back from the Olympic Break, it's be really great to see the Sharks take the lead early here and then maintain it. It's not that I didn't enjoy the more thrilling aspects of the come from behind win on Thursday, it's just I'd rather not see the Sharks make a habit of it. There's just something nice about a good old fashion lead the whole game win.
Tune in tonight @ 7:30 for some Rick Nash induced frustration and hopefully Sharks induced elation.
