It's Feb 13. The Sharks have played 13 games. I used to wear #13. What does this mean?
Nothing! Zero! Zilch! And that's the problem right now, too many zeros. The Sharks have been shutout two of the last three games, but to their credit have earned a point each time because they too pitched shutouts, at least in regulation time.
The Sharks have scored 11 goals in eight games so it's not hard to figure out what needs to be done - score more goals. I'll say this, scoring woes now are not the end of the world… just ask the 2011-12 Los Angeles Kings.
The short, intense schedule will be a roller coaster the entire time. Enjoy the ride, even the bumpy parts because it's all part of the process of trying to make the playoffs and peak at the right time.
That's my thought for the day. Now I'm going to enjoy a slice of Chi-town.
