Sharks Gameday: Lacuna


Next Game


The Sharks have been on a mild roll lately. A three-game winning streak is a very modest accomplishment, but the team has been playing well in just about every area and fans should be happy with where the team is right now. The worries and doubts that started to spring up after the team's cold start can begin to melt away. Better times are here.

So naturally today I want to talk about the most painful moment in Sharks history.

For those of you who are unaware, this season I'm relating each of my gameday posts to one of my 82 favorite films. Today's movie is my 75th-favorite of all time, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In brief:

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a 2004 American romantic fantasy film about an estranged couple who have each other erased from their memories

Eternal Sunshine features a company that can go into your brain and erase memories. The main character of the film is trying to erase the memory of a woman he was dating, because remembering her is too painful.

So the natural question is...what hockey memory do you have that is so painful that you would erase it?

What's the worst thing that has happened to your team during the time you have been a fan? A playoff loss? An injury? A bad trade? I know it can be painful to discuss these things, but talking is the first step towards healing.

For me personally, the memory I would erase is the Sharks' 2009 playoff loss to the stupid Ducks. It hurt so bad. It still hurts. If I could purge the memory of those terrible games from my mind, I'd be a much happier man.

The following video is from the post-game report of game one of the series, which the Sharks lost. It makes me sick to my stomach to watch it.

That hurt. A lot.

Please share your most painful hockey memories in the comments.

Prediction: Sharks beat the Red Wings, 3-2. Goals from Marleau, Boyle, and Nabokov.
