Twitter Tales: #InNemoWeTrust
The Sharks headed out east to begin a three-game road trip and made their first stop at the White House. With a goal from a Kennedy and a stellar night in net by Antti Niemi, all ended well in the capital of the US of A.
@SanJoseSharks 16-1 vs Caps in last 17 meetings.— Travis Roberts (@SharksdeSanJose) January 14, 2014
Meanwhile at the White House the same day ...
Washington D.C. is Sharks Territory.
Some Sharks fans took part in "National Dress Up Your Pet Day". Look out Patrick Marleau.
San Jose Sharks Academy has a nice ring to it.
Can every teenage sharks fan have a school designated just for us? And we just study hockey all day? Yupp sounds like a plan #SJSharks— Ciara Carter (@ciara_carter1) January 14, 2014
Optional #SJSharks skate this a.m. Safe to say Sheppard still a scratch based on fact he's skating w/Torres, Havlat and Burish at moment.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) January 14, 2014
Tyler Toffoli scored on the night Dustin Brown attempted to assassinate Hertl. He never scored again. Now he's in the AHL. #TomasCursl— Fear The Fin (@fearthefin) January 14, 2014
Something two teams would rather not have in common: WSH lost most recent game to BUF in shootout Saturday; #SJSharks did same on 11/5.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) January 14, 2014
The Sharks started at little slow, but then this happened ...
Mike Brown and Volpatti just threw about 10000 punches in eight seconds. Blood on the ice.— Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) January 15, 2014
Tyler Kennedy lived up to his last name while in Washington, D.C., blocks away from The White House.
Kennedy's goal. KENNNNNNNEDYYYYYY— Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) January 15, 2014
I hope the goal TK scored wasn't too disrespectful to Adam Oates. #SJSharks— Brian Tenerowicz (@BrianTenerowicz) January 15, 2014
Kennedy: "JD made a great pass, that's a world class pass there & I just tried to get it on net."— San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) January 15, 2014
Demers playing some great hockey for the #SJSharks. 4-7=11 in last 12 and averaging over 20 minutes TOI the last 3 games— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) January 15, 2014
Can I just say… THAT’S the way #sjsharks need to dominate a first period. Now take that momentum into the 2nd!— California Soul (@cabock) January 15, 2014
So Ovechkin still looking for first shot more than halfway through game. #SJShark Irwin credited w/block on last whack taken after giveaway.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) January 15, 2014
Moments later ... *jinxed*
Sometimes the clock is not your friend. In this case it just didn't like Brad Stuart.
Great pace in the 3rd as both teams showing some desperation. Good stuff! Entertaining hockey! #SJSharks— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) January 15, 2014
Caps netminder Grubauer just made 3 consecutive saves on Kennedy, one was on a #SJSharks 2-1.— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) January 15, 2014
Niemi made some beautiful stops to help save the day once again.
You know who's good a hockey? Justin Braun is good at hockey. #sharks— Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) January 15, 2014
Time to shine penalty kill.
#SJSharks take first penalty against league's top power play with 1:15 left in game. Marleau off for hooking Grabovsky crashiing net.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) January 15, 2014
Going into OT here in WSH with 45 seconds remaining on penalty to #SJSharks Marleau.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) January 15, 2014
Chimera just punched Vlasic in the face in the corner. But overtime, so...— Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) January 15, 2014
On to shootout after wild OT with both #SJSharks and WSH getting good chances to win. I say we give each team 1.5 points and call it a nite.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) January 15, 2014
Two points sound better to me.
Caps go 0-fer while Marleau scores the lone goal, Couture-eque I might add, & the #SJSharks start road trip w/ a big win - bank those 2 pts— Jamie Baker (@Bakes_Jamie13) January 15, 2014
Boss: "Alix haven't you been done with your 30??" Me: "yeah but the @SanJoseSharks went to a shootout"— alix (@AlixNicolee) January 15, 2014
SJ now 17-1-0 in their last 18 games against the Capitals, including 9-1-0 in their last 10 at Washington. Only loss: Dec. 15, 2009 at WSH.— Darin Stephens (@SharksStats) January 15, 2014
