Sharks Gameday: Schrödinger's Cat

Based on the outcome of Friday's game three, please disregard the half of this image that doesn't apply.



I'm writing this post on Friday morning, before game three. I'll be leaving for Las Vegas this weekend (what better place to spend the Rapture?), so I'm not going to have any time to write a new gameday after game three takes place.

Since I don't know whether the Sharks won or lost the first game in San Jose, I'll write a short piece for each possible scenario - then you can just read the one that applies for today.

If the Sharks won on Friday:

What an incredible game on Friday, am I right? The Sharks played solid hockey and were rewarded with a victory. They didn't let the game get away from them, they were disciplined and focused throughout the whole 60 minutes, and they put together one of their most complete team efforts of the entire post-season.

Highlights of the game for the Sharks included a dominant performance by Joe Thornton, a resurgent Joe Pavelski, and Antti Niemi locking things down when the Canucks got their chances.

On Friday the Sharks proved yet again that this season, they are a different team. Call it "heart" or whatever you like - the point is that this year's Sharks team isn't going to pack up their things and give up when things get tough.

Great work on Friday, Sharks - now do it again!

If the Sharks lost on Friday:

What an incredibly shitty game on Friday, am I right? The Sharks played crap hockey and were punished with a loss. They let the game get away from them, they were undisciplined and unfocused throughout the whole 60 minutes, and they put together one of their worst team efforts of the entire post-season.

Lowlights of the game for the Sharks included a weak performance by Joe Thornton, a continuing-to-suck Joe Pavelski, and Antti Niemi playing like dog poop when the Canucks got their chances.

On Friday the Sharks proved yet again that sometimes they just fucking suck, for some reason.

Awful work on Friday, Sharks - now don't do it again!

Prediction: Sharks win!
