Great White Bites
Drew\'s Thought of the Day - 5\/2\/2013

Game one was an outstanding display of playoff hockey. The Sharks started out very well playing a strong road first period.

The Canucks responded with a great, very physical second period. They tried to run the Sharks out of the game.

The Sharks bent but certainly won the test of will in the third period.

As we concluded last nights broadcast I remarked to the Great Randy Hahn that in Shark wins we end up talking about many if not all of the team for making an impact on the game.

Game One was no different. I was impressed with the collective effort. However talking to some of the other media and respected hockey folk after the game here is a sampling of some positive comments.

All anonymous because at the time they didn't know I would quote them in the world famous Great White Bite.

"You know who I really liked? Wingels, does he always play like that?"

"Boy, Desjardins got the chance to play, he really took the opportunity. He had to play and was really good."

"Brad Stuart just knows how to play in the playoffs."

"When's the last time the Sharks had a player like Raffi Torres?" He was on a mission."

"Logan Couture is...so smart"
                               ...so talented"
                               ...so good"
                               ...helluva hockey player"

Note: There were quite a few pro Logan comments.

"Joe's (Thornton) line got the game back for you guys."

Note: He was right. Joe, TJ and Brent Burns played some good old fashioned straight ahead hockey.

It's always enlightening listening to other people offer their opinions on a game we just watched.

We all see the game differently.

However after the game last night it was hard to decide if there were more BIG Shark performances or more opinions about them.
