One at a Time

Goodness gracious sakes alive! The San Jose Sharks go into the 3rd period trailing 2-0 and then leave with an OT victory. Who'd have thunk it?

San Jose combined a solid first period with an abysmal second and a stellar third to force overtime and then won it with some excellent forechecking by Joe Pavelski, a seal-off by Christian Erhoff, another seal-off by Patrick Marleau and then a "twisted wrister" from Pavelski into the back of the net.

A great win by San Jose and while it's still hard to understand why they were so flat in the second period, credit has to be given for the drive they showed to tie the game in the third... and then get the victory.

Game 6 Sunday night in Dallas.
