Sharks vs. Penguins, Game 6 Lines: Still without Hertl

New, comments

I am glad to see that people are Czech-ing in on him.

As the Sharks prepare for their toughest test of the year, Pete Deboer informed the media that Tomas Hertl was not ready to join the team just yet.

The beginning of that tweet started so beautifully. I thought, surely, we would be getting a surprise in this penultimate game. Hertl may very well be getting close to returning but until I see it with my own eyes, I will believe that Deboer is playing mind games with the Penguins.

Tonight is going to be a roller coaster ride, isn't it?
