Thinking Positively

I'm sure you've seen the score of Saturday's game against the Kings.  It doesn't look pretty, nor did it feel pretty.  But is there really any reason to throw up the white flag, curse the team and kick over your statue of Kent Huskins.  No, there isn't (though, you may want to do something about that Kent Huskins statue).  Seeing the Sharks lose 4-0 is a painful, especially in the post-season.  But for some reason, I just can't bring myself to thinking this is the end.  Heck, the series is tied 1-1 (look at NHL.com, and see how many of the series are knotted at 1).  Why get riled up and frustrated from one bad game?  You may be thinking this is just like prior years, that the team is going to "choke" once again.  There is a chance that the Sharks can lose this series, but there is a more likely chance that they will overcome the adversity and move on to round two. 

Throughout the regular season, this team has been through thick and thin.  The beginning of the year wasn't easy.  2 goal leads in the 3rd period turned into Overtime or regulation losses, goal tending wasn't at its strongest and the depth was shaky.  But  since that 6 game stumble in January, this team has learned to persevere.  Looking throughout the regular season, this team bounced back after a troubling loss.  I know its a different season, per se, but this team sure as heck knows what it feels like to recover from a loss.

The Sharks will look at themselves in the mirror and correct those mistakes.  There are 2 days of practice ahead until game 3 in LA.  This team will rebound strong, because thats all they know how to do.  Have faith, fellow Sharks fans, it isn't the end.  Its only just the beginning.  Be faithful and unwavering till the end, raise your heads up, and cheer this team on.  Thats all we can do at this point.  

5 games left, its going to be one heck of a ride.
