9/29 los angeles 5, SHARKS 2
Yes, it was nice to see a win last Thursday against the Canucks, but it was just pre-season and tonight against the Kings, thank goodness it counts for nothing. An outmatched Team Teal got whipped around by the boys from tinseltown. A team missing half of its top two lines and a couple of key defensemen showed it tonight in a match-up where they were just clearly outplayed. Tonight was Nabokov's last start of the pre-season, and tomorrow should be Toskala's with this coming Thursday being opening night.
Tomorrow night brings the Flames to town, and hopefully a lineup closer to what we'll be seeing this season, and a much better result than tonight.
Any harsh words here tonight are almost a direct result of sitting too close to drunk Kings fans, I suppose it's good practice for the road.
Next game: 9/30 vs Calgary
