Twitter Tales: #AllAmericanWin
A recap of the Sharks 5-2 win over the Senator in Ottawa according to those who followed and tweeted about the game on twitter.

 

The second of back-to-back games over the weekend had the Sharks skating for points less than 24 hours after playing in another city. All that equated to some tired legs and a tough matchup at the end of an East Coast road trip.

 

 

Earlier start than usual for most Sharks fans.

 

 

A balanced attack and a good start for the Sharks hopefully has the play of some of the less heralded being noticed.

 

 

San Jose's first Sunday game of the year pits them against the NFL for the first time. So here's a loose tie-in.

 

 

#SharksTerritory is everywhere.

 

 

Lineup and roster details.

 

 

First Period

Loving these quick starts.

 

 

The ever-important line combination reporting.

 

 

Desi gets his first on a highlight backhand.

 

 

People are still amazed by Mike Brown's mustache.

 

 

News would eventually surface that Nieto was held out of the lineup after lingering effects from a blocked shot in the Montreal game, the night before, a game that looked like it had an impact on the whole team and not just Matt.

 

 

First penalty of the game goes against the Sharks, but works to their advantage.

 

 

Second Period

 

 

Third Period

The Senators got a goal in the second to bring it within one, but another Sharks first allowed the team to pull away.

 

 

And this was just an amazing goal.

 

 

Final

 

 

Not any amount of glowing optimism, but good perspective.

 

 

Congrats to Alex on picking up his fist win as a starter in a hard fought performance. He admittingly said this was much tougher than getting the win coming off the bench three years ago in Phoenix.
