Do we have your attention Motown?

Now, now. I know hockey is new to us ignorant Cali-forn-i-a folk. We don't know anything about hockey. We just like to wear buttless chaps, make sourdough bread bowls and watch our beloved Sharks while sipping fine Napa Valley merlot. Let's get it straight Motown. I'm certainly smart enough to realize this series has only just begun but......ah, hell.....I can't resist.

HOW ABOUT THEM SHARKS???

I'm not going to gloat or boast or dress up in my teal thong and ride down the Castro into a rainbow of hockey happiness. That would be dumb because we still have to whip your ass three more times. It is going to happen. Just like we said. The Sharks are bigger and stronger. The Sharks defense is better. And the Sharks had one power play and, guess what Puckheads, they scored. Just like Mike and I said they would.

I could continue to berate you Puckheads, but I'm showing uncharacteristic restraint. Maybe it's the Girl Scout in me? Maybe it's the case of Jack Daniels I just drank? Maybe it's because I have to get up early to help Dominick Hasek close his five hole....

I just wanted to make sure we have your full attention Motown.

You outdid yourself. Excellent work.

Yeah, it was an impressive performance. The fact the Sharks dominated in their defensive zone surprised me a lot. I still have hope for the Wings though. Will Nabokov resist. He has a tendency to get scored a lot sometimes (I know, I had him in my fantasy draft this year), and being from the province of Quebec, I know that Rivet is just on the verge of imploding. I saw him do that too many times...

Good luck this afternoon!

I did some analysis earlier this year about Nabby vs. Toskala. Turns out the every-other method of starting goaltenders happened to work out in Tosk's favor- Nabby faced much tougher opposition in the first half of the season or so. Not really any consolation fantasy-wise, but it's interesting. Also caused me to be less surprised when Nabby went on a tear at the end of the season, that still continues.

Thanks for the post, Luc. I have faith that Nabby will hold strong. We have seen him get into this type of zone before and when he does, with this Sharks roster, they will be tough to beat.

One hour to go....
