Really got to hand it to the NFL for pulling out all of the stunts in an attempt to pull attention away from the Sharks gameday.

Sharks got the scoring going early in this one.
Second strong shift by Couture line pays off in goal for Wingels. #SJSharks take 1-0 lead at 3:39.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) November 22, 2013
Sharks acknowledge Marty St Louis for his 1,000th game, gets a nice round of applause from SAP Center crowd, stick taps from Sharks' players— Erik Erlendsson (@erlendssonTBO) November 22, 2013
The Lightning were able to sustain pressure all night long, but despite the high shot yield, the Sharks defensively stood strong.
TB spends entire two minutes on PP in the San Jose zone, gets 3 shots on goal but fails to score #EverythingButTheFinish— Erik Erlendsson (@erlendssonTBO) November 22, 2013
Everyone joins in support of Movember.
Couture was eventually credited with an additional assist on a goal he came close to deflecting in for the score himself. Either way a very strong period (and game) from Logan.
Couture in the 1st period. 1a, +2, 7-1 on face offs.— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) November 22, 2013
Wingels decided he's not done scoring goals. He collected his first multi-goal game of his career.
Nice pass from Marleau behind the net to Wingels makes it 3-0 San Jose with 8:13 left in the period— Erik Erlendsson (@erlendssonTBO) November 22, 2013

Here's hoping this guy's cat gets fat and happy this year.
@SanJoseSharks Marleau scores a goal, my cat Marleau gets a treat.— Jason Guerrero (@guerreWHOA) November 22, 2013
Listening to postgame thoughts, Burns wasn't even sure he deflected in the Sharks fourth goal, but will gladly take it in his return.
OK, corrected -- Burns gets credit on the redirect, not Thornton. That fifth one is Marleau's, though.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) November 22, 2013
Brent Burns with a goal. The Sharks are now 8-0-1 this season with him in the lineup, and are averaging 4.9 goals per game in those games.— Darin Stephens (@SharksStats) November 22, 2013
