Dan's Thought of the Day - 11/25/2013

On some nights, you grind it out to victory, and the San Jose Sharks did just that against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night. Sharks Hockey really had to earn it against a Devils team that just wouldn’t go away. It was a special night for a variety of reasons.

While the score was a tight 2-1 favoring the home team, setting things up for a monumentally challenging week against Los Angeles, St. Louis, and Anaheim, I’d like to offer a tip of the hat to a couple of future Hall of Famers who showed their stuff at SAP Center this past Saturday:

We’ve taken players like Martin Brodeur and Jaromir Jagr for granted, because they’ve been so good for so long and it’s almost considered as constant as the sun rising each morning that we’ll see them on a National Hockey League team, plying their trade with top-level excellence. On Saturday, fans were entertained with another solid performance from these two players, who have 2,647 games of experience between them. They continue to defy the march of time, so let us count the ways:

Meanwhile, the “showcase” segment of the season is now over and the Sharks are moving into “the grind,” which is the way that we describe Games 20-50. The grind begins this week, with an incredible set of challenging games within a very short span of time: Los Angeles on Wednesday, St. Louis on Friday afternoon, and Anaheim on Saturday night. Three games in four days. Oh, yes, there is a lot for a hockey fan to be thankful for. I’m Dan Rusanowsky, for sjsharks.com.
