#TwitterTales: #SJSharks vs Flames and is Joe Pavelski becoming a real American hero?

— San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) January 22, 2014


The Sharks rolled into Monday night's homestand starter with momentum from a perfect road trip, collecting six points in three games. Coming home for an extended period before the Olympic break presents a chance for the best looking team in teal to pick up some valuable points in the standings.



The Flames are in town days after starting a game against the Canucks in an all-out line brawl, with some public scrutiny cast on what instigated the fracas.



First Period

Things begin by looking well and then not so well.



But have no fear, Joe Pavelski is here.



But before the PA could even announce Pavelski's score...



However, just a total of 72 seconds after Pavelski first got the Sharks on the board, Westgarth happened.



Second Period



Power play beauty.



Joe Thornton continues to make history.



Third Period

In place of the final period that saw no score change, wrongfully denying Joe Pavelski of a consecutive hat trick that would have surely taken over twitter and may have even got him featured on Sports Center ... we'll share this Burns crushing hit from the end of the 2nd.
