Twitter Tales: #PointOhEight
The Sharks took an undefeated (in regulation) record in to Boston on Thursday night. The gameday presented many matchups including Jumbo's return to Boston (and ironically Brad Stuart's) as well as brothers Freddie and Dougie Hamilton playing against each other for the first time in their young NHL careers. On top of all of that, there was also some baseball game being played across town.
Never thought people would buy tickets to a hockey game & then stay home to watch baseball on TV.— Matt Kalman (@TheBruinsBlog) October 24, 2013
The question on everyone's mind.
Pizza or Nachos? for food to watch the #SJSHARKS tonight!!— Beto Gil (@AJGiL22) October 24, 2013
Valid point here.
Why haven't we been calling Nieto/Pavelski/Wingels the American Express line?— Fear The Fin (@fearthefin) October 24, 2013
Older brother Freddie is a forward playing in just his second career game while his younger brother Dougie already has a rookie season under his belt for the B's.
Mike Brown's mustache has everyone excited.
Love Mike Brown's stash. And he's already ruffing guys up on the ice. Love it. #SJSharks— Gaganpreet Bains (@Joltdudeuc) October 24, 2013
Worst period of the season #BruinsTalk— Matt Kalman (@TheBruinsBlog) October 24, 2013
Total shots at end of 1st were 28 to 9 in favor of the Sharks. Sharks had 16 shots on net, 9 blocked and 3 misses. Boston had 3-3-3— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) October 24, 2013
Near the end of the first period, Sharks forward Tommy Wingels took a suspect hit in the corner of the defensive zone from Bruins giant defenseman Zdeno Chara. Unfortunately for Tommy and his teammates, Wingels exited the game and was questionable to return from that point forward.
@PollakOnSharks only 11 forwards so that will likely be the case for rest of game— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) October 25, 2013
Despite a lopsided shot count in the Sharks favor, much of the game went by with very few stops in play.
Very few whistles -- and no stoppages for goals. #SJSharks outsooting BOS 23-7 and fact this is scoreless can't work in SJ's favor, can it?— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) October 25, 2013
More baseball jokes about a lack of presence at the Bruins game.
@PollakOnSharks refs have tix to World Series game— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) October 25, 2013
Bruins get one past Niemi, the first he's surrendered in a while.
You won't find this in the notes, but @SanJoseSharks Niemi had a shutout streak at 122:15 when that goal was scored by my math.— Matt Kalman (@TheBruinsBlog) October 25, 2013
Only two penalties, total, were called in the game. And the one against the Sharks, Drew Remenda does not agree with.
I love how all Drew can do is laugh at that penalty. #SJSharks— Matthew Bessette (@MBessette957) October 25, 2013
The @SanJoseSharks skating circles around the Bruins tonight... Bound to pay off eventually— Pete Landry (@WallStPete) October 25, 2013
You would think....
Well, looks like this one is headed to overtime...wait...what?!?
What a way to suffer first regulation defeat. Heck of a game despite tough ending— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzCSN) October 25, 2013
McLellan: "We can't leave here saying we could have & should have b/c could have and should have never won any games." #SJSharks— San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) October 25, 2013
Just simmer down. No way #sjsharks were going 81-0-1. Let this make them hungrier and get their goal scoring groove back.— Erik Kuhre (@Puckguy14) October 25, 2013
