#TwitterTales: #SJSharks vs Wild & a pair of most excellent extensions help extend the winning during extended action

— San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) January 26, 2014


Dan Rusanowsky put it eloquently as only the voice of Sharks radio could. On the same night as a spectacle in Los Angeles for a Stadium Series outdoor hockey game, a Hollywood script was being written 400 miles north at SAP Center.

In poetic fashion, Sharks forwards Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau were the stars of the night just a day after agreeing to extend their current contracts with the team. Thanks to their effort, the Sharks extended a win streak to six games, following a defeat of the Minnesota Wild in extended action. Most excellent!



If you happened to miss any of the news of Jumbo and Patty's extensions, you can catch up here.

But before the ink could dry, it was a tie game.
