Top 10 Moments of 2016-17: "We Want Seven!"

The San Jose Sharks set multiple franchise records with a 7-0 playoff win

After being shutout in games 2 and 3 against the Edmonton Oilers, it seemed as though the Sharks were due for a breakout on offense. It wouldn't have been surprising for the Sharks to score three or four goals in the next game.

But seven? 

The Sharks wasted zero time getting on the board. Well, okay, they technically wasted 15 seconds. Either way, fans who thought they could miss the first 30 seconds of the game missed out on a new Sharks playoff record.

The Tank was rocking all night, getting as loud as it's ever been. Even up in the press box, there was no way to even hear yourself think over the roar of the crowd.

Of course, the crowd's roar was just a thunderous noise - there was also, after the sixth goal, a very specific chant that almost blew the roof off.

Sharks fans asked, and the Sharks delivered.

But really, seven (seven!) goals should have been expected with the NFL's all-time touchdowns leader in the house, cheering the team in teal on.

The explosion of offense in Game 4 set all sorts of Sharks franchise records, in addition to being all sorts of fun. It truly was one of the top moments of the season.
