Vlasic Gets The Silver Medal

by San Jose Sharks Staff / San Jose Sharks
The gold and bronze medal games at the world championships weren' t kind to the Sharks players involved as Marc-Edouard Vlasic and the Candadians fells to the Russians 2-1 and Joe Pavelski and the Americans fell to the Swedes 4-2.

In the U.S. game, the Americans were tied 2-2 at one point thanks to an individual effort by the Sharks second line center.  Pavelski took the puck end-to-end, cut through Swedish defenders and lifted a shot from the left faceoff circle over a surprised netminder.

Both Sharks players are not battle testedinternational play and the experience of the do or die tournament feel should only add to their young NHL careers.
