The Tank, CA
On a sultry Saturday afternoon, with the temperature in the 90s along with the humidity, we march ever closer to game time. As I glance over at my Corgi prognosticator, he sleepily turned to me and said, ” wake me up when we win today, its too hot to pay attention.”
As we anticipate the first EVER Stanley Cup Final game at 5 PM, a few questions come to mind about the tilt. Missing Tomas Hertl bad, Karlsson rises to the occasion? Logan Couture’s comments about the cheater Crosby, whining or productive gamesmanship? Will the linesmen enforce the faceoff rules? Can Brett Burns get untracked and unleash the nasty on Matt Murray?
Can the Sharks break Pittsburgh’s iron grip on our forecheck? Can Jones continue his stellar play to give us a chance to turn the series? The Joes need to show up, Joel Ward wreaking havoc in front of Murray needs to happen. Nick Spaling or Chris Tierney gets a goal tonight….Roman Polak needs to play on the edge and hurt some Penguins tonight.
