It Either Ends Or Continues For The Sharks After Game 6 Loss Detroit 3- San Jose 1

Posted: May 13, 2011 in Hockey, San Jose Sharks

What’s up sports fans? I want to take this opportunity to apologize to all those who were following my game by game blogging of the Sharks season. We had a death in the family and it took my attention away so I couldn’t keep up with the last part of the season. On a lighter note the Sharks found themselves in a bit of a pickle. Thursday they have to either end their season or continue their season. In any result we as Shark fans can’t complain. The Sharks have given us one great season.

For Sharks fans who remember the past, this is difficult because in the back of their minds, they’re thinking (Is this going to happen like so many times in the past, we have a good season but can’t get out of second round. God! Please don’t let it happen to us again!) I personally think Shark fans should relax. Okay, I know that’s a tall order but, I just can’t except us going down in defeat this time.  If you remember I blogged back in February that the Sharks were going to win Lord Stanley’s Cup. I still believe they are. Okay even I have to agree, the Detroit Red Wings are a scary bunch of fellows. I mean let’s face it anytime you are down three games to none and you come back and force a game seven, hey that’s pretty impressive.

“It’ll be a new game with both of us having an opportunity,” Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. “We have lots of guys who’ve risen to the occasion many times in their career.” After three straight wins for the Red Wings things aren’t looking so good for the men in teal. One of the reasons Detroit was able to accomplish so much in so little time is that they had they’re backs up against the wall. You’d be surprised what desparation can do to a team, and right now Sharks can’t act cool about Thursday’s game. They have to come out with more score attempts in this game than they’ve shot all season.

“Just ask Detroit. They lost three in a row and their confidence wasn’t frayed,” San Jose forward Joe Thornton  said. “We’re a confident group, still. You work 82 games to get home ice in these Game 7s. Now we just have to make it work.” You can feel the same resiliency this team had earlier in the season, and it will take that same resiliency to help the Sharks win the Stanley Cup. So the question is will the Sharks get the Stanley Cup or will they fold under pressure? Tell me what you think. Remember folks it’s ALLBAYAREASPORTS.COM Bay Area Sports Magnified!
