Five For Howling
  • Evgeni Nabokov shrugging his shoulders, dipping his helmet forward, and peering around through the top of his eyes before a defensive zone faceoff.
  • When Dan Boyle gets all bug eyed on the bench in an attempt to fix his helmet.
  • Rolling Staubitz and Shelley on the same line.
  • Seeing Staubitz and Shelley log less than ten minutes of ice time combined.
  • Gary Green in general, but specifically his interviews. Also, imagining I am Gary Green when riding a bicycle in pajamas.
  • That I hoped (and expected) the backup goaltender would see roughly 25 starts this year.
  • How both the former and current Captain were the only Sharks unaware of the stick salute to the fans after beating Columbus.
  • Whiteouts at home, even though the away teams are wearing white jerseys.
  • The fact that Jed Ortmeyer looks like Patrick Marleau sans those wonderful eyebrows.
  • That the Sharks are going to go up two goals tonight and blow the lead, only to come roaring back and win the game in overtime. Never fails against Phoenix.

Prediction: Sharks win 4-3. Goals by Vlasic, Setoguchi, Thornton, and McGinn (who, bless his heart, manages to stay out of the box tonight).

Go Sharks.
