Hey what is this? A liveblog? I figured why not! Since a lot of people might not get to see the first part of the game.
Check back here at game time!
They’ve got Bob Sturm in studio with Ric Renner, Mr. Hair with Mr. No Hair. They talk about stringing 2 wins in a row, and how the Ducks and Sharks are the two teams we knocked out of the playoffs last season. (Wow really? I had no idea.)
Now talking of Russian, that will not make him happy. They mention that against the Sharks, Marty is 20-7-1-4, so things are looking up. The ford Trivia question is “Who has the most career assists against the San Jose Sharks?” with Lidstrom, Modano, Sakic and Selanne being your choices. We’ll see who the answer is. And now they’re running the segment on Richards that I have now seen about 50 times.
Razor is interviewing Mark Parrish. He seems like a nice man! I like him, especially after last night. And Joe Sakic wins the battle with 47 assists against the Sharks. Time for Sturm’s last night (talking about how Marty Turco needs to be a brick wall) and LET’S GET THIS SHIT STARTED!!
Ralphie’s tie doesn’t really match his suit, and it bothers me. In other news (not mentioned on the broadcast), Lehtinen is still a no-go for tonight, Richards is in.
20:00: First up is Otter-Richards-Eriksson. And my feed looks a little green? I guess for Stars morale? Thought it seems to be straightening out.
19:00: Modano out with Parrish and Avery. Unlike the first line, the Mo line actually got it to the Sharks end. This is where we need to be guys. Harder for them to score 5 from that side.
19:33: Ribeiro is out with Morrow and Fabi again. And are doing much better than the first 2 lines, as they should be. Being that they ARE the ‘top line’.
17:31: and Marleau is leaving after being hit with a puck I believe from another Sharks player. That sucks for you. Especially with no Cheechoo.
And I just read on Heika that the Sharks fans boo when the word “star” is said in the national anthem. And people say we’re disrespectful? First booing the O Canada, now this?
