Sharks Swamp the Devils…by Momma Gouche

The first 13 minutes of the game between the San Jose Sharks and the New Jersey Devils on Friday night was a host of penalties, from head checking, interference, fighting, etc. The skills of hockey came into play when Patrik Elias scored for the Devils at 13:53. That was the sum total of period number one. The Devil’s Zach Parise, scored on a short-handed penalty shot 36 seconds into the second period giving the Devils a 2-0 lead. Parise was awarded the penalty shot when Brent Burns hooked him from behind, negetting a great scoring chance. San Jose finally got on the score board with two quick goals at 15:18 and 16.21 of the second, with tallies from Joe Thornton and Ryane Clowe knotting the score up at 2-2. The Sharks had stepped up the pace and out-shot the Devils 20-5 in the second and ended the game with a 41-19 advantage. Zach Parise almost got another short-handed goal 8 minutes into the third, but Antti Niemi was not to be stymied a second time. At 13:18 David Clarkson put the Devils ahead again and it looked like San Jose would be left with a 1-5 record. But with 33 seconds left Joe Pavelski evened the score at 3-3 with a beauty, and the game headed to overtime, which netted no results. It took six shots before Ryane Clowe came up with the winner. The San Jose Sharks played a very gutsy game that wound up being very entertaining one of who’s got the puck (pluck)?
