Twitter Tales: #EndingOTphobia
A recap of the Sharks 3-2 overtime victory over the Calgary Flames according to twitter.

 

Finally! That's what it felt like and although it's likely a bit of a dramatic emotion to have during the first half of November of a full 82-game season, there was a sense of relief. Not only did the Sharks secure a victory for the first time in six games, but they did so in overtime, an extra period of hockey that has been unkind to those who wear teal in the early parts of the 2013-14 season. Yes, a goal was scored in overtime... and it held up! Here we go.

 

 

It was everyone's favorite Czech rookie's birthday. It's slightly bittersweet as it marked the end to one hashtag, but a hope that the rest continue to live on.

 

 

Canada is cold.

 

 

Still no timetable on a hairless Chewie.

 

 

But Alex gets the start in the pipes, giving Nemo a rest. Also a slight shuffle on the blueline that would pay off huge.

 

 

A tragic reminder of the devastation Calgary endured during the early summer.

 

 

First Period

Stop me when you've heard this before... Sharks strike quickly.

 

 

And Patrick Marleau won't let Couture get on the board without doing the same. Critical power play score.

 

 

Second Period

Couture takes a stick up high and #SharksTerritory collectively holds their breath... then a sigh of relief.

 

 

An extremely fast pace was being played at the Saddledome and it seemed to benefit the visiting team.

 

 

Third Period

Fear and doubt creeps back in. Flames get on the board following a tough call against the Sharks.

 

 

Oh Movember...

 

 

Another Flames goal and everyone become hysterical.

 

 

Overtime

Wait, everyone doesn't enjoy overtime? #FreeHockey

 

 

Sweet, sweet, overdue, justice.
