Tuesday Trivia is a weekly feature of the Daily Chomp. Check back next week for a new question and prize.

Last season, defenseman Dan Boyle became the highest goal-scoring defenseman in Sharks history when he passed Sandis Ozolinsh. Troubled by injury in the early goings of 2011-12, Boyle turned it on in the second half, finishing eighth among league defensemen in points (9-39=48). The Sharks assistant captain also set a career high in shots, finishing 2nd among league defenseman.

TRIVIA: How many total shots did Dan Boyle record in the 2011-12 regular season?

With the Olympics here again I had a thought. Why doesn't hockey follow basketball's lead and ask to be part of the summer games? This would allow for all the best players to appear in the games without having to shut down the NHL for two weeks mid-season. Players stay in shape all year and I bet we'd see some excellent hockey. This too would be a great way for hockey to extend its relevance at least once every four years.

Careful what you wish for department: Rick Nash is on the move to Manhattan and the Rangers. Hope you lace them up tight Rick. New York City is not Columbus and you will be under the microscope starting day 1. Should you go invisible for three of four games, the NY fans and media will have no mercy. Play the way you can, win, and you will become a legend.

Columbus adds two legit NHLers, a prospect and a first round draft pick. The Blue Jackets made the best deal they could. Now Columbus must continue to press forward with these new players and others they landed in trades at the deadline. For Ohio fans I hope the Jackets can transform into a competitive team that is in the playoff hunt come March.

“Preparation is the hard part, fighting is the fun part.”

That quote is from boxing great Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero. About a month ago I was in Tahoe and met Guerrero a few times while he was training for his big fight Saturday night against Selcuk Aydin at HP Pavilion in San Jose.

It was very interesting and cool to watch the focus as Guerrero went through his training exercises. In boxing, it’s all about focus because if you lose it for just a few seconds in a fight there is a good chance you will be getting knocked out.

After 7 weeks training in the altitude of Tahoe where his daily regimen was eat, sleep and train (no TV at his compound) Guerrero is ready to take on the undefeated Aydin with the winner possibly getting a shot at Floyd Mayweather once he has completed his time in jail.

Good luck to ‘The Ghost” who is great guy, and make sure to head to HP Pavilion to watch the local Guerrero or catch the fight on Showtime this Saturday night.

Did you know... Patrick Marleau played in his 400th NHL game on Oct. 19, 2002 vs. Colorado. At that time, he was the youngest player (23 years, 34 days) to accomplish the feat since Bob Carpenter in April 1986 (22 years, 268 days).

  • Acquired D Dan McGillis, D Kyle McLaren, C Alyn McCauley, and C Brad Boyes.
Also, be sure to check out the Sharks History Page and the Photo of the Day.

Over the course of their history, the San Jose Sharks have played in some pretty memorable games, but there are a few that always get lost in the shuffle for a variety of reasons. I thought that I’d take a skate down Memory Lane for a moment and recall one playoff game that deserves to be on the “most memorable” list.

May 6, 1994: The Explosion
We’ve all chronicled the Sharks’ victory over Detroit in the 1994 Western Conference Quarterfinals many times, and we’ll never forget Game Six of the next round against Toronto, when a post denied Johan Garpenlov’s chance to score a series winner in overtime. But in that Toronto series, Game Three provided an opportunity for a fan explosion that ranks among the greatest, and least discussed, moments in Sharks’ playoff history.

San Jose had defeated Detroit, but they won Game Seven on the road. Then, they split the first two games of their series against the Maple Leafs. When the Men in Teal hit the ice in San Jose on May 6, 1994, it was the first time that Sharks fans could gather at the building now known as HP Pavilion to celebrate together, and to show their appreciation for what their team had accomplished.

Ridiculous, moronic, ignorant, immature and maybe criminal. Those are some of the words describing minor hockey coach, Martin Tremblay's actions in the abov video.

This happened about a month ago in a University of British Columbia-sponsored three-team recreational spring league for 11 and 12 year olds. The handshake was the formality at the end of the final game in which Coach Tremblay's team won the game!

The pathetic excuse for a man used an equally pathetic excuse. The old "I slipped..." was the best he could offer. The RCMP didn't buy it and arrested the coach and charged him with assault as one of the players that ended up on the ice because of the trip broke his wrist.

To celebrate Sharks history, each week we will highlight moments of the past. So check back to the Daily Chomp each week to celebrate with us for Throwback Thursday. In addition, we will be giving away special Sharks throwback items every Thursday.

This week the Daily Chomp takes a look at the Sharks 2001-02 season.

Did you know... the Sharks won the Pacific Division title for the first time in 2001-02 and became just the second team in NHL history (NYI) to post six consecutive seasons of point improvement.

More from that year:

  • Set a franchise record with a six-game road win streak (Dec. 6 –19)
  • Tied a franchise record by scoring 10 goals on March 30 vs. Columbus — the most ever at home.
  • Goaltender Evgeni Nabokov set franchise records in all-time wins (58), single-season wins (37), all-time shutouts (11) single-season shutouts (seven) and became the seventh NHL goaltender (first European-born NHL goaltender) to score a goal.
  • Forward Owen Nolan became the Sharks all-time points leader with his 351st point as a Shark.
  • Made the Stanley Cup Playoffs for a franchise-record sixth consecutive season.
  • Acquired forward Adam Graves and defenseman Rich Pilon.
Also, be sure to check out the Sharks History Page and the Photo of the Day.

Pop Culture:
  • The popular online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, first appeared online.
  • The first blockbuster film of the Harry Potter franchise hit the theaters.
  • NBC’s “Friends” was the number one show on television.
  • “The Cha Cha Slide” by Mr. C The Slide Man was first played on the dance floor.
