    The Capitals have 5 days off and don't play again until wednesday. That is crazy. What is wrong with the scheduling for the NHL?

    Watching it because I’m a huge Kovalchuk fan and I’m curious how he’ll look back in the NHL.

    What a difference in this game from our game yesterday. It took 5 minutes into the game for the first scoring chance by either team.

    LA is running two D on each of their PPs. And Kovalchuk is playing a net front presence on the top PP which is DD, Kopitar, Kempe, Muzzin and Kovalchuk.

    Soooooo dumb.

    Pretty simple. Kopitar, Pearson, Kovalchuk, Carter Doughty.

    What a combo the Sharks have playing together. Arguably the best defensive dmen in the league in Vlasic, and arguably the best offensive dmen in Karlsson. That's an epic pairing.

    Kempe is a puck hound. I like him.

    Nice shot by Kane. 2-0 Sharks.

    Mur didn't have a good game but watching these games... Rask, Quick, Fleury, Bob and others have also let up poopy goals. Not a great goaltending start to the year for some of the top names. Getting beat easily.

    Kovy is the new Hornqvist. Such a hilarious decision by LA. I do not get it AT ALL.

    West Coast lol

    West Coast lol


    Okay, but really, it's a bit different. Especially so as I get an 'old skool bruiser' wanna be vibe from the Kings still. Just cemented in old hockey instead of speed and skill.

    Kopitar cleaning up the garbage.

    He made that look easy, but it wasn't. But that's what elite players do. Real handsy goal.

    They should be using him the same way we use Kessel on the left side. Or the point.

    Net front presence?

    What in the ****?

    Also, is hocket an inside joke, or are we just cool with the thread title being spelled badly?

    Karlsson HAS to get to that puck first. Toffoli did and ties the game.

    I worked with this guy for 5yrs that was a huge Sharks fan, one of the most obnoxious people I have ever met in my life. Every day, this guy would never shut up about the Sharks, every Pens vs Sharks game he would rub it in my face if the Pens lost.

    Also, I hate Couture and his redneck racist brother.
