Watching Fox Sports Ohio was a great reminder of why you should never go to the Buckeye State. Example A:
I dunno, I'd like to see what else Desperate Debbie can do with her tongue.
Example B: The announcers repeatedly calling him Vuh-lasic. It's pronounced "VLA-sick" or "PICK-uhls" you backwater hicks. Go strangle yourself with a puh-lastic bag.
I'm clearly in a bad mood because of the final score, a 2-1 OT loss for the Sharks. But there's an reassuring trend throughout San Jose's losses.
Shot total for San Jose vs. shot total for opponent in Sharks losses
10/17 @ ANA: 38-20
10/24 @ FLA: 50-35
11/09 @ PHO: 32-30
11/11 vs. NAS: 57-29
12/06 vs. EDM: 43-17
12/17 @ CBJ: 48-32
Would you like some pepper with that victory? San Jose outshoots the opposition 44.7 - 27.2 in their losses. Opposing goalies have allowed 11 goals on 268 shots for a mind-numbing 0.959 save percentage.
If you want to beat the Sharks, you better be starting the second coming of Ken Dryden.
