Twitter Tales: #HappySharksgiving
The day after Thanksgiving... so much turkey. And what better way to recover than watch some Sharks day hockey. And what better treat than a Burnzie hat trick! Maybe we create a holiday out of it? Happy #Sharksgiving! A day of remembrance for when the Sharks punished the Blues for past crimes by dropping a hat trick on them en route to a blow out victory.
On the top of minds of Sharks fans...
Max Lapierre on meeting #sjsharks today, for the first time since his incident with Dan Boyle: “I’m ready to face the music"— Brodie Brazil (@brodiebrazilCSN) November 29, 2013

Up side for today - at least I get to watch the @SanJoseSharks before work today. Go Sharks!— Erika Rodriguez (@HeyLady510) November 29, 2013
Not that anybody cares, but press box giving big thumbs up to 1 p.m. start for #SJSharks vs. STL. Bring on the 36-round shootout.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) November 29, 2013
Less than a minute and already scored?! Go sharks!! #SJSharks— Charlie McMenomey (@crmcmenomey) November 29, 2013
Trading Douglas Murray and turning Burns into a forward was the Sharks' Jack Johnson-for-Jeff Carter moment.— Fear The Fin (@fearthefin) November 29, 2013
The #SJSharks are 10-0-1 with Burns in the lineup. He helped his cause by scoring 35 seconds into the game 1-0 Sharks— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) November 29, 2013
STL, coming into the game, had only given up 1 PPG on the road. Not anymore, nifty Pavelski pass to Thornton who scores in consecutive games— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) November 29, 2013
#SJSharks Brown pays Lapierre a visit at whistle. Nothing ensues.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) November 29, 2013
And another goal! Burnzie strikes again.
St Louis feeling blue because you got Burned twice! #sjsharks— Erik Kuhre (@Puckguy14) November 29, 2013
#SJSharks also out-shooting STL 9-1 at this point.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) November 29, 2013
3-0 in the first 10 minutes of the game?! Got St. Louis singin' the post-Turkey Day Blues!!! @SanJoseSharks— Mike (@ImNotTheTypical) November 29, 2013
They keep coming!
To all the #SJSharks fans who wanted retribution on Lapierre... Isn't this scoreboard what you really wanted? 4-0.— Brodie Brazil (@brodiebrazilCSN) November 29, 2013
Couture all over the scoresheet - 3 assists and 1 penalty …. so far!— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) November 29, 2013
Dear @SanJoseSharks, don't waste all those goals, I'm going tomorrow night. Love, Leigh Anne— lalakeys (@lalakeys) November 29, 2013
Just found out the Blues team had their Thanksgiving meal this morning for breakfast. That totally explains the lethargic start. #SJSharks— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) November 29, 2013
The only reason Brent Burns won't be on the Olympic team is they're afraid he might eat the medals.— Megalodon (@MegalodonBOC) November 29, 2013
Blues have 13 players who are -1 while Bouwmeester is -2. Sharks have 9 players +1 while Marleau, Couture and Burns are +2— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) November 29, 2013
First heat of night: Backes cross-checks Stuart into #SJSharks Niemi, scrum follows. Backes off for 2 plus 10 after being baited by Brown.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) November 29, 2013
BacKISS YOUR CHANCE TO COME BACK GOODBYE— SJ (@stace_ofbase) November 29, 2013
St. Louis collected the lone goal of the period that saw the Blues draw even in shots (12-12) after getting outshot 12-2 in the first period.
Unfortunately, Backes came back and so did the Blues.
A broken stick, behind the back passes, blocked shots - all part of the Blues PP before Backes (not in the penalty box) scored 2 make it 4-2— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) November 29, 2013
Jaroslav Halak entered the game at the start of the 2nd period in relief of Blues starter Brian Elliott.
I miss Brian... Elliott #SJSharks— Sachin Sahota (@__sachinsahota) November 29, 2013
Blues' second four-on-four goal of game makes it 4-3. Scwartz gets this one on 2-on-1 break with Sobotka.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) November 29, 2013
But Wookie to the rescue!
This is the best thing to happen to Brent Burns since he and Han Solo came back to save Luke just before Vader shot down his X-wing.— Sean Gentille (@seangentille) November 29, 2013
Sharks about to go on the power play or, as I like to call it, "Operation: Get Brent Burns A Fourth Goal."— Fear The Fin (@fearthefin) November 29, 2013
Icing. And not the ref blowing his whistle kind. The kind they put on top of cakes to put away the Blues and give the Sharks their fourth straight victory.
Hertl with the empty net goal!! #SJSharks— ∞ Courtney Nicole ∞ (@court_nico) November 29, 2013
@SanJoseSharks Turkey dinner last night...Duck tomorrow night....goooooooo Sharks— David T Johnson (@mnementhi8u) November 30, 2013
