Everything is the same as yesterday. The Sharks and Blue Jackets play in Sweden again at 12:00. The Sharks won yesterday off the strength of their awesome forward lines. There was a lot to be excited about from yesterday's game, including the strong play of Joe Thornton and Ryane Clowe, and solid goaltending from Antti Niemi (aside from a few mental lapses).
There were some stupid turnovers and the defense looked iffy, as expected, but the Sharks got the win they needed and have a lot of good things going for them on which to build.
More detailed analysis will make more sense after the team has played a few more games, so for now:
Prediction: Sharks win 4 - 1, with goals by Thornton, Marleau, Boyle, and Murray, along with a strong game from Niittymaki.
