Twitter Tales: #KeepItSimple
Football or hockey? Easy choice.
Going to my first #sjsharks game this season! Playing the Minnesota Wild, who have a great logo, but are NOT allowed to have any goals. No.— Andrea (@Andrea_Holtz) December 12, 2013
Welcome to sunny California winter, Minnesota!

A cute moment between Charlie Coyle and a Wild fan that went viral recently.
A cute moment between Jumbo and a Sharks fan earlier from the season. Totally viral-worthy.
@SanJoseSharks My 73 yr old mom has added Hockey to her sports repertoire-Her fav player-Patrick Marleau-Why? "Becuse he is so good looking"— Sandra Flores (@sandraflores_3) December 12, 2013
As the holidays approach, Christmas spirit is in the air ...
Some line changes for the Sharks and a goalie change for the Wild.
#SJSharks won't face Harding for second time in four nights as Backstrom in net for Wild. Niemi gets start at other end of the ice.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) December 12, 2013
Looks like Pavelski centering 83 and 57. 39 and 12 now with 81. Fourth line a mishmash of Desi, Havlat, Hamilton, Shep, Brown— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzCSN) December 12, 2013
Surreal moment of 2013. Fan asks for photo w/me. Fan asks guy standing next to me to take pic .Larry Robinson snaps photo. Fan has no idea.— Randy Hahn (@sharkvoice) December 12, 2013
The Sharks came out strong and capitalized on their first power play attempt of the night.
Pavs on the PP and just like that they both (Pavs and the PP) have goals in consecutive games. #SJSharks— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) December 13, 2013
Fontaine back in box again, this time for holding Thornton, and #SJSharks about to go up 5-on-3 for 1:30 as Cooke goes off. Getting loud.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) December 13, 2013
Although the Sharks couldn't score on the 5-on-3, Tomas Hertl made up for it during the one-man advantage.
MY BABY TOMAS HERTL SCORED. THATS MY BOYYYYYY (: @SanJoseSharks— Shelby Ketchum✨ (@Shelby_Beaar) December 13, 2013
Wondering who leads the Sharks in goals this season? Answer: #HertlPower (15th goal of the season)
Sharks go on the penalty kill after Demers is called for cross-checking.
In NEMO we trust!! What. A. Save. #SJSharks— [GPY] Izumi Itsumi (@madtyger) December 13, 2013
Wow, holy Niemi. #SJSharks— Ben Yelin (@byelin) December 13, 2013
Logan must not have eaten his Lucky Charms for breakfast. Unlucky all night.
Couture hits pipes at buzzer or this'd be 3-0. As it is, #SJSharks take 2-0 lead into first intermission. The uh-oh score as of late.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) December 13, 2013
Konopka sent to the penalty box for 4 minutes (high sticking). #SJSharks on their 5th power play of the night.— San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) December 13, 2013
Endless chanting of "Joe" wildly ensues with his 2nd goal. #SJSharks— Noelle (@noelle_starr) December 13, 2013
Joe Pavelski with his 21st career two-goal game. Among active players, only Pavel Datsyuk (30) has more two-goal games with no hat tricks.— Darin Stephens (@SharksStats) December 13, 2013
The two Joe's had a good night.
Pavs with 2 G's 2night but love all he does on the ice. 33 BS T4th NHL Fwd's, 55.1% F/O 1st Team & 16th NHL, plays on PK, 4-4 he does it all— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) December 13, 2013
Joe Thornton had 2 assists, giving him 816 for his career, moving him into sole possession of 26th on the NHL's all-time assists list.— Darin Stephens (@SharksStats) December 13, 2013
Another first for Hertl in his career.
Hertl wraps up Brodin for a hold. Wild PP down 3-0 with 4:53 left in the 2nd— Michael Russo (@Russostrib) December 13, 2013
Now that was an exciting penalty kill!
Hey Casey, we need more sticks here at SAP Center. 3 broken on the same shift. A hat trick of broken sticks is you will! #SJSharks— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) December 13, 2013
Who knew Snoop Lion (formerly known as Snoop Dogg) and San Jose Sharks would ever be in the same sentence together?
Hertl draws a holding penalty on Clayton Stoner. Surf’s up, dude— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzCSN) December 13, 2013
Hertl's hard work definitely paid off as he had an awesome night all around.
Hertl with a great defensive play to avert a PPGA. He's also drawn a penalty, stopped a key icing, taken his 1st penalty & scored.Busy nite— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) December 13, 2013
Yes, Nemo is amazing.
Is Niemi in net or god? #SJSharks— Sachin Sahota (@__sachinsahota) December 13, 2013
Uh oh ...
An upset Couture heads to #SJSharks locker room after being felled by puck to the head, then banging his glove on ice.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) December 13, 2013
Niemi loses shutout bid with 7:24 left in 3rd when Brodin's shot from point glances off someone and into San Jose net.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) December 13, 2013
Couture's back— Michael Russo (@Russostrib) December 13, 2013
Way too many broken sticks to count. Oh wait ...
This was exact win #SJSharks needed: never trailed, Power Play kicked in, and team closed it out. Losing streak over, on to Nashville— Brodie Brazil (@brodiebrazilCSN) December 13, 2013
You want the PP going … Check! You want the #SJSharks to hold a lead …. Check! Sharks win & now head on a tough trip to NSH, STL & LA— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) December 13, 2013
Hertl on first career penalty: “I hoped all season [for] zero. Today, two minutes, it’s fine.” #SJSharks— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzCSN) December 13, 2013
Tonight was the 3rd time this season the Sharks had 3 PP goals in a game (Oct. 15 at Blues, Oct. 19 vs Flames).— Darin Stephens (@SharksStats) December 13, 2013
Welp...there goes my modeling career...thought for sure that was in my future...damn.— Logan Couture (@Logancouture) December 13, 2013
@SanJoseSharks YOU'RE A GREAT GIFT— SJ (@stace_ofbase) December 13, 2013
