San Jose Sharks Beat Philadephia Flyers by One-Tenth Of A Second
The NHL Network has a show called ‘Classic Games’ where, mostly during the summer, they replay…well classic games. One such game was the San Jose Sharks against the Detroit Red Wings from January 17th 2009. I was lucky enough to be there for that game and it has since gone down as probably the closest thing you’ll ‘feel’ to a playoff game during the regular season.
The same can probably be said for last night’s Sharks comeback against the Flyers. If you didn’t see the game I suggest you scour the interwebs for a replay. I’m not going to go over the game too much except to say the only thing better than scoring 3 unanswered goals to tie the game was the one-tenth of a second replay to show that the Sharks had NOT lost the game at the end of overtime.
They say it’s better to be lucky than good. Last night showed two things. The Sharks are capable of being VERY good, and they’re also awful lucky.
