The New Girl Talks About Hockey – Someone Has To

So I may be new to the scene, but I am the one person who will be paying any attention to hockey on this site.  Being from the Bay area I have favored San Jose, much to my surprise I was feeling pretty good after 3 games, still a bit skeptical though.  How can my team, the modern fuckup in playoffs be one game away from sweeping the modern-day dynasty and making it to the finals?  After a decade of finishing first and second in the Pacific, the team that includes an all-star goalie and a gold medal winning front line has somehow never been able to put it together in the playoffs.  Although we were strongly favored in round 1, we did our best to let the Avalanche take us out.  Granted, the Red Wings took 7 games to make it to round 2 in very un-Red Wings like fashion, but I still expected them to roll over the Sharks….very similar to what was seen tonight in the 7-1 slaughter by the Red Wings.

After year after year of watching the Sharks get taken out earlier than expected, and just being happy making it to round two, it’s a bit hard to believe that the Red Wings aren’t going to pull a 2004 Red Sox move.  You know the move, I mean it was one of the greatest comebacks in playoff history, all sports included, but let me add I HATE the Red Sox (you will hear plenty about that) and really do not want to give them credit for that year but alas.  Hopefully the Sharks can hang on for at least one home ice victory to make it to the finals and be the number one  seed that actually makes it to the Stanley Cup Finals. What a Cinderella story that would be.
