This Is The Shark-Tank Pregame Report:
“#BelieveInTeal: Part Troix” -
Domination. Too soon to celebrate? Yes. Half way done with round one, and the Sharks had another miraculous game. Game three is tonight, and Cory Schneider will be in net for Vancouver. A game changer? Yes. An advantage to San Jose? Most definitely. San Jose defeated Cory all three times they’ve faced the Canucks.
Grit, determination, and willpower. Those are the keys to tonight’s game three victory. The Sharks are two wins away to a ticket to Round Two. Nimei once again stood on his head and stayed cool under pressure for the Sharks, and the offense bailed him out half way through the OT period on Friday night with a HUGE goal by Burns and Torres. Tonight is a huge hill though. Do the Sharks keep fighting through? Or will they rest and go soft? Marleau, Thornton, and the Sharks offense must answer that with their sticks.
INJURY REPORT : Defenseman Chris Tanev, who missed the final 10 games of the regular season, made the trip to SJ but was seen wearing a walking boot. David Booth (ankle) and Manny Malhotra (eye) are gone for the season. San Jose was without forwards Scott Gomez and Martin Havlat (undisclosed) and defenseman Jason Demers (lower body) for Game 2. But all three are game-time decisions.
