This time they went to Colorado and beat the Avalanche (yes, I can’t stand the Avs–you’ll notice there are a lot of NHL teams that I really don’t like) a solid 5-3 to improve to 4-2 on the road. Devin Setguichi and Milan Michalek (he’s from the CZ!) each scored two goals, and Ryan Clowe got the fifth one. This is just great news because not only have the Sharks shown that thye can win at home where they are 6-0, but that they can win on the road, which is essential for any team in contention for the Stanley Cup.
I know, I know, it’s still early and there are like 71 games or something to go, but still, this is nice. If they can maintain this kind of momentum and skills then they are going to set all kinds of franchise records, and maybe bring the Cup to San Jose at long last. Right now it is easy to believe this, and they have been tested a bit, but there is a lot of season to go and many more tests in store.
Their next game is against the Minnesota Wild, in San Jose. Here’s to hoping that not only will there be another Sharks victory at home for an unbeaten streak of 7-0 and the Shark Tank, but also an Obama victory in the Presidential election. If I had to choose, though, I would take the Obama victory. The Sharks have 71 games left, Obama has one night. Get out there and vote for the man who can formuate a smart sentence, and truly seems to care about this country and has some good plans to help pull us out of the fire.
