Twitter Tales: #NoVember
A recap of the Sharks 3-2 loss in a shootout according to those who followed and tweeted about the game on twitter.

 

The first home game in half a month set the tables for a visit from the Desert Dogs. Despite the Sharks fantastic start through the month of October, little separated them from the rest of the Pacific Division, hot on their tails.

 

 

Speaking of hot starts, several players on the Sharks had great individual performances in the month of October, but defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic was honored as the sole representative.

 

 

Gameday came a day after a big burly Sharks forward decided to take a razor to his scalp and face for charity. Over $23 thousand was raised for Defending the Blue Line and the Katie Moore Foundation.

 

 

And even more giving will happen after the Sharks wore Veterans Day themed jerseys during the morning skate. They will be auctioned off for charity by the Sharks Foundation during upcoming home games on Nov. 5 and Nov. 7.

 

 

Big lineup news as Dan Boyle is finally ready to play.

 

 

Also, it has been known for some time, but finally Dan Rusanowsky was inducted into the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame. Well deserved!

 

 

First Period

The Sharks are used to a hot start, but not when they're on the other end of it.

 

 

Nieto skating back with his American linemates... I wonder if this line will do anything tonight?

 

 

Wingels takes the first Sharks penalty of the game on a hit he might even admit was late. However the Sharks penalty kill, tested four times, would not be the issue at the end of the night.

 

 

Phoenix netminder Mike Smith has a reputation for performing well against the Sharks. He's 7-4-1 with a .944 save percentage, 2.09 goals-against average and has four shutouts.

 

 

The Sharks power play, contrary to their special teams performance on the penalty kill, did struggle to produce at the team's standards on the night. It was an example of something that looked very good at times, but for various reasons, did not result in goals.

 

 

Brodie Brazil and his eventful interviews.

 

 

Second Period

Halloween extends an extra day for some.

 

 

A well timed Sharks goal by a greatly missed #22, especially on the power play.

 

 

Third Period

 

 

Shootout

Yes, we skip overtime and head straight to the shootout. What we skipped was several Niemi game-extending saves and too long of a duration for holding your breath.
