What is “Billy Mosienko Time?”

For those of you who have listened to our broadcasts, you know that it means that a team needs more than one goal to force overtime, but time is dwindling in the game. It’s named for the late Billy Mosienko, who scored three goals in just 21 seconds for the Chicago Blackhawks on March 23, 1952, at Madison Square Garden against the Rangers.

What is “Teemu Selanne Time?”

For those of you who have seen the Finnish Flash play, it usually means that it’s a Sharks game where he is on the opposing roster. Selanne scored his first NHL goal against the Sharks at the Cow Palace, way back in October of 1992, and he’s close to becoming the first player to record 100 points against San Jose in his career. But so far this season, Selanne has not recorded a single point against Sharks Hockey, and the team is hoping that stays that way in the final two games of the season series.

What is “Marleau Time?”

It’s the third period, where Patrick Marleau has scored more goals than anyone since the 2005-06 NHL season. Marleau has two goals on this trip, and one of them, scored on March 18th at the Honda Center against the Ducks, came at the 19:31 mark of the second period, which is pretty close to being “Marleau Time.”

What is “Sharks Hockey Time?”

When the Sharks really need to record a win, they tend to gather all of their energies and get it done with a combination of determination, resolve, goaltending, and timely play. As the road trip concludes, what is definitely needed is a little “Sharks Hockey Time,” which might need some “Marleau Time,” but hopefully no “Billy Mosienko Time” and definitely no “Selanne Time.”

See you on the radio tonight.
