3.15: Hockey X-Sport's What's in Store
-- Had time now for hockey export superstar watching. Store and find out what's in store we -- again. -- Jamie baker who -- a little late getting to his -- this afternoon and I thought maybe he'd been out of a decapitated by one of those big -- -- fly around the American Airlines that are but fortunately. Makes is OK okay here to tell us why. Exactly this Dallas team gives the Sharks so many problems over the last few years. It's funny -- and I mean they just like playing against San Jose Dallas three on one against the Sharks here Sharks won one and two against Dallas. But you know what they play a pretty conservative game they do a real good job in the defensive zone -- should be good goaltending. And they kind of just hang around I don't wanna say -- Lowell was charged slate. But they just keep the games close and help this year three of the games have gone into overtime or shootout so that's been -- -- they found a way to win those two of those himself. From San -- standpoint. -- Pacific division rival you know it's going to be a close game both teams are kind of in grumpy -- that come off tough losses. Hard hitting affair we cannot go -- in San Jose this. Look forward this to be a rough and tumble exciting. Guys I've -- I guess excellently I can add to that is you know Brenden Morrow the type of guy that is a relentless sort of player he's a guy that's not known. Gets guy that was back -- -- they were the same way he works of course about a sixty minute game. And Dodd I think that's the biggest thing that -- compare these two groups and how they have. The Dallas Stars have had success we just like you say they lowly -- they -- you to -- to work working through the course of the sixty minute game and sometimes the Sharks haven't been able to sustain a full sixty minutes against this team. And you know guys we talk so often about the Sharks riding that wave of momentum that they have had for much of the last two months but. Makes all of a sudden here's a stars team that really didn't play very well. In January but now all of a sudden in March they're terrific they are 61 and two in. In their last nine so really the momentum is on the other side of the guys tonight. Well they're they're desperate plan for the playoff lives we're gonna see that the rest of the way. I mean everyone. That the Sharks are playing pretty much have a good chance to make a -- maybe Saint Louis. Not so much that Saturday night everyone else fighting for their playoff lives. You look at the race in the Pacific division its -- I mean San Jose's eighteen foreign three. Since January 15 that's. Pretty good record. But it hasn't given them much room to breathe and Dallas right now is a game in hand and their only four points flying San Jose's. These teams not only do they wanna win tonight you wanna win in regulation you don't wanna give the other team ten points. -- -- rare win in regulation -- but the other thing is that the few things that you're look at these last three games two of those three you have we're we're good games lost in a shoot out. Specifically the Vancouver game why thought which I thought was one of the best games I've seen all season long. But the Chicago it was a really the only -- you look at that you wanted to say carted off but if you look at as a whole their power play and penalty -- -- got to get better specifically their penalty kill. You're not gonna be all the way to get these divisional rivals in these teams coming down the stretch with a penalty kill extras are suffering it like it is now but if you've come a little bit being a power play. Penalty kill specialist. That you are a little bit on the PK in Whiteside -- a little bit. Well not a -- had not a power play special but. One of my keys tonight is actually penalty kill I only see.
