A recap of the Sharks 3-2 overtime victory over the Wild as retold by twitter.

 

Dan Rusanowsky put it eloquently as only the voice of Sharks radio could. On the same night as a spectacle in Los Angeles for a Stadium Series outdoor hockey game, a Hollywood script was being written 400 miles north at SAP Center.

In poetic fashion, Sharks forwards Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau were the stars of the night just a day after agreeing to extend their current contracts with the team. Thanks to their effort, the Sharks extended a win streak to six games, following a defeat of the Minnesota Wild in extended action. Most excellent!

 

 

If you happened to miss any of the news of Jumbo and Patty's extensions, you can catch up here.

 

 

First Period

The Wild set out to ruin Thornton and Marleau's party early on.

 

 

So Mike Brown attempted to inject some energy.

 

 

Second Period

 

 

Things turned worse before they got better as the Sharks fell into a 2-0 hole.

 

 

But Teal showed some resolve.

 

 

It was opposite day.

 

 

But before the ink could dry, it was a tie game.

 

 

Third Period

 

 

Kerri Walsh trolls Kings and Ducks fans by repping Sharks Territory at the Stadium Series game in LA.

 

 

Overtime

 

 

The Winner.

 

 

Final

 

 

Big game on Monday
