It took you too long to set things up. San Jose had things up quicker than you. They dominated with their GDT. Sadly I don't see this GDT being able to top theirs, not today and definitely not if the series becomes 2-0 San Jose. God I hate the Sharks. I bet the refs help with their GDT threads. Their mod must work for Bettman. It's going to be a long game if this GDT doesn't get its act together. Maybe Matt can fire up our posters and we won't embarrass ourselves in front on the Shark posters.
+1, that was hilarious.
Predicting specific outcomes is not my thing, and while I'm obviously pulling for the Sharks, I do favor the Wings chances in this game.
If the Sharks lose this game, the foundation for that loss will have been laid firmly in the first period. As such, I fully expect the Wings to exit the starting gate with sparks flying from their skates, doing everything humanly possible to turn the Sharks offense into a spastic, panicked, and disoriented defense - peppering Niemi, as early and often as possible, for an early score and maximum offensive momentum. That's my biggest dread, and if it reflects on the score board, the thing that will definitely take much of the crowd out of the game.
I'm not superstitious, so if it's any consolation to anyone, I'll be the Sharks fan that touches the octopus.
