[Open Thread] Game Three, Western Conference QF: San Jose Sharks at Calgary Flames

(Series tied 1-1)

More mandatory viewing for any of those who calls themselves hockey fans.

For the Sharks, the keys to this game are relatively simple. They must match the physical effort put out in Game Two, because nothing less will do against an über-determined Calgary squad. It would behoove (or is it befin?) Los Tiburones to gain an early advantage, thus taking at least some of the steam out of a Flames fan base that will be raucous in the extreme. And... well, actually that's it. Play level three Sharks hockey, tonight and in every game for the remainder of this series and all the series to hopefully come.

Okay, let's drop the puck.
