Twitter Tales: #HowSweepItIs
Besides eating turkey and catching up with family, the Sharks had a tough schedule Thanksgiving week facing three top teams in four days. Saturday night was going to be a good test for the Sharks as they faced a strong Pacific Division rival. The Sharks were victorious in the shootout and collected 10 points during their five-game homestand sweep to give them the best record in the Pacific Division.
Duck hunting anyone?
For those excited to see Teemu Selanne back in San Jose ...
#SJSharks fans losing out on chance to see Selanne tonight. At 43, he's not traveling on second-half of back-to-backs this season.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) November 30, 2013
For the Sharks: Great to have Burns back. For opponents: Not great to have Burns back.
The Sharks have been playing some great hockey lately. Nice to see so many familiar names at the top.
Close stats between the division rivals.
Well that's not good ...
Puck to face and Thornton heads for repairs.— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) December 1, 2013
After a brief leave of absence, look who's back on the ice! Now that's a hockey player right there.
Not the start the Sharks were looking for as Anaheim scores early.
I hate it when Katy Perry scores! #SJSharks— Peter N. (@TarantulaPete) December 1, 2013
I think it's safe to say you don't want to mess with Mike Brown.
Speaking of Mike Brown, Saturday was the last day of Movember.
Brown is the only person allowed to have a mustache tomorrow. #sjsharks— chelsea rodrigues (@chelseaa_mariee) December 1, 2013
The Sharks shined as they outshot the Ducks 16-9, scoring three goals.
Hiller misplays puck badly, #SJSharks play tic-tac-toe in front of empty net before Marleau scores as shortie. 2-1, San Jose leads.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) December 1, 2013
Even Jumbo was impressed with that setup by Hiller #SJSharks— Carmine Caposella (@carminooch43) December 1, 2013
Well, yeah. It happened. pic.twitter.com/LtGzrme7gA— Brodie Brazil (@brodiebrazilCSN) December 1, 2013
It's scary that Joe Thornton is operating with one eye.. The way he is playing you'd think he has three #SJSharks— Sachin Sahota (@__sachinsahota) December 1, 2013
FREE TACOS!!! Thanks Havlat!
@SanJoseSharks 9x18x27= SHARKS GOAL!!!— Kenny 34 Stahura (@KStah34) December 1, 2013
The Sharks always like to keep things interesting.
Misplay by Niemi. Grant gets his first goal in his first #NHL game, and it’s 3-2.— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzCSN) December 1, 2013
The irony of the Ducks game tying 3rd goal is they are only 38% in the face-off circle but Bonino wins the draw to Lovejoy who fired it home— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) December 1, 2013
Both teams traded two shots and each had power plays. No goals.
Couture hits the post to kick things off.— Anaheim Ducks (@AnaheimDucks) December 1, 2013
Bye Ducks! #SJSharks— Edgardo 'Dio' V. (@Diobility) December 1, 2013
BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER! LOGAN COUTURE SCORING AND SHARKS WIN? OH YES! 4-3 Babbyyyy #SJSharks— Mary Sabrina Shultz (@MarySabrinaS) December 1, 2013
November ends. Longest homestand of the season ends. But the #SJSharks 5 game win streak continues...— Brodie Brazil (@brodiebrazilCSN) December 1, 2013
