Here is a quick review of the Sharks 4-game road trip back east against some pretty good teams in Detroit, Boston, Montreal and Ottawa.  

I think it's important to note that all 4 of those teams made the playoffs last year:
Boston - went to the Cup Finals losing to Chicago in 6 games Detroit - Lost in the 2nd round to eventual Cup Champs Chicago in 7 games Ottawa - Lost to Pittsburgh in the 2nd round Montreal - Lost to Ottawa in the 1st round

Record: 3-1-0
Goals For: 8
Goals Against: 4
Players injured, not playing:  Boyle, Burns, Torres, Burrish, Havlat

Discipline and patience - those are two of the characteristics the Sharks showed in a defensive gem as the Sharks shut out the Red Wings at Joe Louis and won the game in the shootout.

Spectacular - the save Neimi made on Bertuzzi to secure the win.

Stifling - The Sharks did that to the Bruins out-shooting them 39-17 only to get a taste of their own 'stifling' medicine by Tukka Rask who stole the game for the hometown Bruins.

Buzzer beater - we see it in basketball all the time but not very often in hockey.  Unfortunately for the Sharks, who were the last team in the NHL without a regulation loss, the Bruins scored with 0.8 seconds left to win the game 2-1.

Suffocating - that's what the Sharks did to Montreal's offense as the visiting Sharks shut out the Habs 2-0 on Hockey Night In Canada.

Chien chaud - the hot dogs in Montreal are terrific.  If I've said it once I've said it a million times, it's all about the bun and they toast the buns there.

Gumption - what the Sharks showed as they played about 20 hours after an emotional win in Montreal to defeat the Senators 5-2.

Perseverance - Alex Stalock getting his 1st NHL start at the age of 26 after overcoming a career threatening injury.
