Twitter Tales: #FunMustBeAlways

 

Things can get a bit down after three consecutive losses. Doubt creeps into your mind and opinions quickly shift with such magnitude that make you wonder if you'll ever see victory (or even a goal) again. But just at that moment, uplifting inspiration comes from a forgotten and thought to be unreachable source.

 

 

Tomas Hertl, the Sharks rookie who was a leader in the Calder race and a strong possibility to represent his country at the Olympics, has been out of the picture since surgery on his injured knee from a collision with Kings captain Dustin Brown this fall. That is, until he tweeted a picture of his recovery efforts that hopefully reminded everyone to avoid arbitrary emotional swings of an 82-game season.

 

 

Or maybe it's just one crushing reminder how much we all miss Tomas' smiling face on the ice?

 

 

The Blackhawks arrived in San Jose the morning of the game, flying in from Vegas after a brief team vacation in Sin City.

 

 

Meanwhile, in the Woo.

 

 

First Period

 

 

Some of this...

 

 

And this...

 

 

Kept it scoreless.

Second Period

 

 

Third Period

It was still a defensive battle of scoreless action that began the third, but oddly enough, a short-handed opportunity that broke things open.

 

 

But Hawks answered with a goal from Pittsburgh born Brandon Saad.

 

 

Overtime (Everyone saw this coming, right?)
