On 2/12, a mere week ago, the staff here at Monkeydarts was celebrating a great Sharks win and looking forward to a win that night. Instead San Jose lost in OT to the Flames of Calgary that evening. But at least they got a point for the standings-- something they haven't done in the three games since. Valentine's night they lost in The Tank to the Oilers and then blew town for a seven game roadtrip. No problem, the Sharks have been great on the road. Not so fast you cock-eyed optimist!
Sunday the Rangers topped them 3-1 and last night it was the Islanders turn 3-2. They're staying in the NYC area for a game with the Devils tomorrow night before driving south a few miles to face the Flyers Thursday. Unfortunately the Stars have taken this time to heat up a bit too.
This is the hard final third of the regular season. It's important for the Sharks to finish strong and improve their playoff seeding. Let's go Sharks!
