[Open Thread] Game Six: San Jose Sharks at Vancouver Canucks

@


Gee, it seems like it's been forever since the Sharks played in Vancouver... oh, wait, they were there ten days ago.  This unbalanced schedule shtick (no, not Rob Shick -- please no) has got to go.  But whatever.

After playing one of those games last Saturday allowing most every hockey scribe in the land to pen their annual "the Sharks aren't mentally tough" column, San Jose needs to get after it against a Vancouver squad both looking to extract revenge for getting beat in their home opener by the Sharks and currently riding a mini-hot streak, having won their past three games.  The Sedin twins each have seven points, and lately Roberto Luongo's been guarding the net like... um, Roberto Luongo.

As to Los Tiburones de San José, Jeremy Roenick should be back in the lineup tonight, which means someone gets the night off.  Pick one; with the exception of Milan Michalek it's not like anyone's been dazzling in their brilliance so far this season.  During practice yesterday, Torrey Mitchell and Jonathan Cheechoo who despite rumors to the contrary has actually played in all the games this year switched lines, Mitchell skating with Joe Thornton and Ryan Clowe while Cheechoo worked with Joe Pavelski and Mike Grier.  Hey, if it wakes this team up to where they start playing like the team they can be I'll take it.
