The Sharks win a game one, and they win it against the Red Wings. It's glorious.
I said in the series preview that the Sharks needed to come out hitting, to get to Jimmy Howard early, and to watch their defensive lapses. They out-hit the Wings 38-21 (at one point early in the game up 24-12), they got three goals in the first (within the span of a couple of minutes), and they were, for the most part, careful on defense.
This is going to be a tough series, but the Sharks earned their win tonight. Let us rejoice.
