141106 – postgame Canucks @ Sharks

Pregame news

Back and forth game, mainly dominated by the team in black, but Sharks denied “puck luck” when the tying goal crossed the line after the final horn sounded.

Miller saved more the 30 shots, while Niemi gave up three goals on 19 shots.

Tyler Kennedy returned to action; had an assist on Sheppard’s goal.

141106 – pregame Canucks @ Sharks 7:30pm

TV: CSN CA

Sharks have their longest break of the season to date — with four full days off between games.  A chance to practice, reconnect with families, before the final (of two) homestand game and heading out on the road for seven (in less than two weeks).

Meanwhile, the Canucks are surprising some pundits with how their season has turned around (after last year’s disaster).  On Tuesday, they’re in Arizona to play the Coyotes before heading to San Jose to play Thursday.  Former Sharks prospect Nick Bonino was acquired in trade this summer and is doing well for the Canucks.

Niemi looks to get the start for the Sharks.

Burnzie’s Buzz Cut

Last year, Brent Burns had his teammates shave his head and beard.  He raised nearly $25,000 for two charities.

This year, Burns recruited a few of his teammates (Pavelski, Mueller, Goodrow, Tierney, Sheppard) and some professional stylists to shave their hair.  Through Saturday night, more than $15,000 was raised (you can still donate for the rest of this week).

SF Zoo had a guest introduced to the fans in attendance (who preferred the warm, rather than the cold rink). Monies raised for the zoo will be used for special hammocks for the gorillas.

The fans were trying to get Brodie to grab a chair to join the cause.  (Maybe next year.)

Lots of smiles and fun.

Pregame news

Sharks celebrated Hannan’s 1000th game before the puck drop.  Nice ceremony. But, Hannan was knocked out of the game before the end of the first.

Sharks did not score first, and they got and held a lead in the third.  Hertl broke his goalless drought, and Couture must have been inspired by the Giants to bat in the game winning goal from a bomb from the blueline.
