Orcas Swim the Shark Tank

Shirokov_sedins_medium A nice weekend game I hope everyone was able to watch, but for those who couldn't:

 -The Sedins showed they're worth the money by combining for 7 points, even providing the two goals on the first two power plays.

-Shirokov proved once again that anyone can play with the Sedins and look good, grabbing two assists.  That aside, he did look great and Tommy was so enamored he called him "The Pocket Russian Rocket."

-Scatchard scored a weak goal and made at least one really bad play, his chances aren't looking good.

-Speaking of chances, Baumgartner didn't look good, and Shorty and Tommy were saying Yann Suave looks like he's full of potential, but'll get sent back to junior to gain some confidence.

-The Canucks were outplayed in most of the first and outshot 22-14 in two periods, yet were at that point leading 5-0.  Say what you will about Raycroft, but he looked especially sharp during the PK, while easily outperforming Thomas Greiss

-The third period was won by the Sharks, 2-1, as Marleau who couldn't seem to convert despite several good chances, did eventually get on the scoreboard with two assists.

-I didn't actually see the two Sharks goals, so could someone comment on Raycroft on those?

-I think the Sharks are around 0-13 on the PP in the preseason, and were 0-4 tonight, but keep in mind that their top offensive players, Thorton, Setagouchi, and Heatley didn't play tonight.

-Lots of fights as usual.  Labrie looked good, Desbiens was beat pretty badly, and Burrows was sucker punched by Shelly with Scatchard jumping after that.

-Erhoff looked good with a goal and assist and sending the puck up to the forwards like he's being paid to.


That's about all I noticed.  Nothing new was established, but it was an exciting game.   I can't find an accurate boxscore, but unlike what canucks.com/yahoo/tsn have on theirs, neither Grabner nor Hodgson played.  Those names are actually Parrish and Scatchard, respectively.  Another game tomorrow, and another day closer to the season's start.
