Two Questions, Five Goals and Jerry Maguire

For a team that’s only 20 years old, it was more than 25 years in the making.

No team had come back from being down four goals in the playoffs since Minnesota clawed their way to a 5-4 victory over Chicago on April 28, 1985.

Until the Sharks last night.

Meanwhile, the line of Kyle Clifford, Brad Richardson and Wayne Simmonds was again impressive, picking up two goals.

Kevin Westgarth and Dustin Penner picked up a point.

Ryan Smyth scored a goal.

Yet, the Kings gave up five goals in the second period. FIVE!

Which leaves two questions to ponder today…

One, which playoff loss was worse – game three in 1998 or last night? Back in ’98 at the Forum, the St. Louis Blues scored four goals on a five minute power play. Horrific!

Two, should Jonathan Bernier make his NHL post-season debut tomorrow night?

If you like torture, watch this video – courtesy of the San Jose feed…

I clap my hands and say THIS is going to be a great day!

Inspirational words by the late, great Dicky Fox.
