Twitter Tales: #Clutchure
A retelling of the Sharks 2-0 victory over the Canadiens from Oct. 26 as it played out on twitter.

 

The Sharks headed north with a nasty taste in their mouth that came from a final second defeat to the Bruins. It was Hockey Night in Canada and a game that many players in teal have obviously been looking forward to all road trip.

 

 

Plenty of history in Montreal and there's bound to be some connections with the Sharks.

 

 

Sharks have really been hit hard with injuries lately and another forward's prospects on the night, hung in the balance.

 

 

Overall, many tough decisions were being made in the morning.

 

 

The guy is a rockstar. Niemi has played every minute of every game through Saturday to begin the Sharks season.

 

 

This is pretty cool...

 

 

Lineup decisions are made just after warmups prior to puck drop.

 

 

It feels like Couture's line has started quite a few games in a row and every time Tyler Kennedy stands apart from the rest of the group during the National Anthems.

 

 

First Period

The Sharks get an early power play chance to start the game, but it seemed to work to Montreal's advantage.

 

 

Second Period

 

 

Here we go, some scoring!

 

 

Third Period

When Clutch meets luck.

 

 

Sharks rookie Matt Nieto certainly had a fast and noticeable game.
