Great White Bites

It was former NHL right winger Ron Stewart who was credited with saying something like the following: “If you’re in a game and you’re down, 4-1 or greater, and there are five minutes or less remaining in the game, take a penalty. That way, the folks back home will look at the summary in the newspaper the next morning, and they’ll know that you played.” The calls on Douglas Murray and Adam Burish at 19:25 of the third period last night don’t fall into this category, because they were called for coincidental minors with two Blackhawks. But on Tuesday in St. Louis, the Sharks will play for each other, for the logo on the front of their sweaters, and for the city embossed in their team’s name. After all, it’s the first time that they’ve faced the team that sent them to their earliest playoff exit in franchise history. I’m expecting a great game against the Blues.
