I really wish the refs would just shut up and let them play 5 on 5. I hate all these power plays. I'm glad we got another one, but really.. just let them play.

I agree. I was hoping for a lead going into period 3. This is nerve racking.

This doesn't feel like a game we are going to win. Which sucks, because we should.

Game 4 was a throwaway game, no team expended much effort past the first 10 minutes, outcome never in doubt. For some symmetry:

- let Howard steal this one the way he dropped Game 3

- let the refs give the Wings an inordinate number of PPs in Game 6 like they did for SJ in Game 2

- let the play be even in Game 7 except for a 1 1/2 minute burst by the Wings like the Sharks had in Game 1

I think the Sharks are the best team in the NHL right now, so I expect this 3rd period to be a character building moment for them, a defining moment even, in which they surge forward to a narrow victory. Boy, I sure hope I'm wrong. And we should have all learned by now never to count the Wings out too early.

I seem to recall that a failed penalty shot against the Wings had an impact on a pretty big game against Calgary earlier this season.

Elbow on Franzen away from the play? Or high stick? No matter, it wasn't called, of course.

If the Sharks had scored on the 3 on 2 after no call on that dump of Franzen, that would have been the story of the series in a nutshell.

...and in Game 3 of this very series.
