THE CALIFORNIA BATTLE by Momma Gouche

28 seconds into the San Jose Sharks/Los Angeles game Dany Heatley puts The Sharks on the score board. This game started out looking a little more exciting than the two previous games Thursday night. Even the clock seemed to go quicker. Jonathan Quick looked pretty steady on the next 9 shots after he let one go past him seconds into the first period. In the dying seconds of the first Kyle Clifford and Ben Eager got into a little fisticuffs, but I never found out what it was all about. It was a real fast and exciting period. There is a question as to whether San Jose’s, Jaret Stoll, should receive disciplinary action for his hit on Ian White.It was definitely a penalty that the referee didn’t call, but there is speculating as to whether there may even be a suspension. Ian White went to the dressing room and didn’t return. After all the controversy and discussions on head shots, I was amazed the officials let this one by. Dustin Brown scored for the Kings at 7:25 of the second, but Logan Couture of the Sharks retaliated at 10:23, to put San J in the lead again at 2-1. Justin Williams scored at 16:20 (to add to his assist), and we are back at square one. The Sharks looked like they were loosing momentum the middle of the third and seemed to be chasing the play. They appeared to get some second wind and made some dangerous plays. The Kings’, Drew Doughty, took a penalty with 2.51 left and it could have been a good chance for the Sharks. But Los Angeles held them off and the game went into overtime. There was excitement galore as the play went end to end, and the goalies had lots of action. Finally Joe Paveleski hits the mark and the Sharks win 3-2. That was the most exciting game I have yet seen. The game ended at 1:30 and that will lose a lot of sleep for Momma Gouche, as she will have to stay up late Friday night to watch her Favorite Sons from Vancouver, who play at 10:00 pm.
