Another OT Win. BENN (Ferriero) there... done that!
Another heart stopper put on by the Sharks. But wow, they sure came through in style. In Benn Ferriero's first Stanoley Cup Playoff game and on his 24th birthday he comes up big for his team with the game winner.
It was a tight game throughout. There was only one goal until ten minutes into the third period when Joe Pavelski (American Ninja) tied it on a rebound from a Joe Thornton shot. That is probably the simplest way to describe it anyway. It wasn't so much that he picked up a loose puck on the ice and hit it home as much as he sniped it out of the air and "ping ponged" it in past Detroit's goalie Jimmy Howard. Guess Jimmy has more reason now to punch Pavelski in the head when he crashes the net!
Anyway, a quick turnaround and not much time to sit and enjoy the afterglow of this one. Game 2 is tomorrow at Noon.
Lord Help Us.
