For the last time this season the Sharks roll into town. That means a couple of things:
1.) Brent Burns and his ol’ lady have been thumbin’ a ride across this great land of ours, fuelled on nothing but a case of Boones peach wine and a Jethro Tull cassette to get to Toronto.
2.) Since nothing would bring me more joy than seeing the Sharks knock the Jets and Kings out of the playoffs, and to see the Leafs not pick up two points tonight, you can count on a Leafs win. I am sorry for this, but I am destined to not have hockey joy in my life.
With Kadri suspended, the roster now consists of Phil Kessel, Morgan Rielly, and local improv troupe, Tickled Stink.
The Sharks struggled against Winnipeg this week after Joe Thornton called out his GM (and Hair Club for Men president) Doug Wilson over taking away Thornton’s captaincy. Hopefully they turn things around because no one wants Winnipeg in the playoffs. Deep down I think even Jets fans know it’s a bad idea.
With twelve games left and a six point deficit to make up, the Sharks are essentially done too, and like the Leafs they’ll be one of the more interesting teams to watch git blowed up this summer.
What to Watch For:
- How much Patrick Marleau looks like a muppet
- Given how well the Leafs have played lately tonight is our best chance to see Joe Thornton’s rooster.
- How well can Trevor Smith handle Kadri’s minutes? (SPOILER: not very well)
- There might be commercials for products you want to purchase.
