Twitter Tales: #SmashBrothers
Game Two against the Kings didn't quite get off to the start that the Sharks had hoped for, but have no fear, the Smash Brothers were here to save the day. A spark from the Sharks fourth line (Brown, Torres, Desjardins) helped turn things around in the second period and led to seven unanswered goals for the boys in teal.
Sharks vs Kings, Easter style.
Time for a virtual Easter egg hunt ...

Challenge now for #SJSharks is to not get discouraged. They’ve had the better scoring chances by far— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzCSN) April 21, 2014

Unlike the first period, the second period was amazing! Let the scoring begin!
First career playoff goal, stache master Mike Brown!! #SJSharks— AJ Hanson (@aj_handsome) April 21, 2014
Two games in a row Sharks' 4th line scores. Desjardins and Torres create the turnover on the forecheck, Brown hammers home Desjardins pass— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) April 21, 2014

Sharks scored 10 goals in 7 games on Quick last spring. They've got 8 in less than 4 periods.— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) April 21, 2014
Since second period was so great, let's just keep this scoring thing going.

After that goal, only 27 players in the history of the National Hockey League have scored more playoff goals than Patrick Marleau. #gutless— Fear The Fin (@fearthefin) April 21, 2014
Gotta love the chemistry between Marleau & Nieto. #SJSharks— Jon Hyllested (@jonjayh) April 21, 2014
The Big Pavelski at it again! 5-2.

#SJSharks kept saying they didn't think they'd score five on Quick again. They didn't. They scored six. Couture makes it 6-2.— David Pollak (@PollakOnSharks) April 21, 2014
Make that 7 unanswered goals!
