Score 5, Survive... and Advance

Definitely wrong about one thing... Sharks-Flames game 7 turned out to be very exciting. Led by Jeremy Roenick, San Jose turned a 2-1 2nd period deficit into a 5-2 2nd period lead, resulting in the fabled "4 in the net, pizza and a trip to the next round you get."

You can (and I think should) quibble with the respective bad/good/bad/good/good/bad/good games that helped make this a 7 game series, but nary a quibble can be said about the offensive explosion that won this game 7 for the Sharkies.

To borrow a notion from NCAA basketball, "survive and advance"... that's all you have to do. The Sharks have done that and now match up against a surprising Dallas team that took out last year's Stanley Cup winner Anaheim Ducks.

Game One Friday night in San Jose. Good times.
