I am enjoying tacos al carbon for dinner. I even got a delicious horchata. I don’t eat Mexican food very often but, when I do, it brings something out of me. Spanish is not my first language…it’s not even my third.
Tonight, we take on the culeros from San Jose. There was a time when I liked this franchise but, after the last playoff series, they are on the same va chingate list as the Ducks, Canucks and Red Wings. We beat these putas last game but, by what score, I do not recall. I am betting though it was two goals or less and Jonathan Quick stood on his head…in fact, as I write this, it’s bringing back memories.
Back to back games will offer a ready-made excuses for laying an egg tonight but we have neither the time nor luxury for that crap. We need points. Two is preferred and is, in fact, mandatory.
The Sharks lost Martin Havlat. He was playing like a pendejo anyway so how much it will affect San Jose, I don’t know. Speaking of feo pendejos, the Sharks boast one of the ugliest groups of players in hockey even with the departure of Setoguchi. On top of that list is the cara de culo, Ryane Clowe. I haven’t forgotten his cheap shot and general bitch tactics at the end of the last game…it’s interesting that I remember that but couldn’t recall the damn score. If Kevin Westgarth serves any purpose on this team, I hope to see it unleashed tonight. Yeah, yeah, our old friend Michal Handzus is a Shark. Don’t care. Just want a W.
The L.A. Kings forward group have to build on last night’s victory against the Ducks especially on the forecheck and zone entries, the latter of which still needs work while the former improved. I am also looking at Jack Johnson, Matt Greene and Drew Doughty to be better defensively. Before you tell me “but Drew got the 1st star”, yeah, I have no damn idea how that happened given his defensive lapses and a penalty that nearly cost us the game. On a positive note, let’s see if Anze can get a goal or two and add assists. He had a terrific game, along with Dustin Brown, last night. If anyone is due, it’s Justin Williams & Simon Gagne. Both have underwhelmed in the “finish” department. I hope Jonathan Bernier gets the start.
This is your open forum and while San Jose Sharks fans can vete a la verga, I love each of you as my brothers and sisters of puck.
