5.17: Complete Chicago/Sharks Game One Recap
Comcast SportsNet provides you with comprehensive coverage following Chicago's game 1 triumph over San Jose.
In the NHL's Eastern Conference it's a Cinderella. Up final hole with -- two long shots going head to head but here in the west Fred had a can. It is the desired match up number one team in the regular season San Jose -- number two in the regular season Chicago. A 12 matchup with lots of expectations and rightfully so yeah. I think the fans got what they want tonight what a hockey game and then ferocious pace of this game not a lot of whistles. Right off the -- -- a lot of musicality I'll write your very eager to exercise or run -- again that's stewardesses who. -- this match up later tonight but I'd get pulled -- college other sports is getting hits on each other set the pace. And little chirping after that as well as Ryan -- took umbrage to that get played here there was also a penalty on the play not because they had. Stand up power play as a result in Jason Rivers stadium. Yeah again it's all -- sets up your old Ford driver into the net Dryden sort over. May have been -- good -- can come back I'll never played just disrupting it enough. That was called on this next power -- that had not happened Dustin -- with a one guy you can live your defense. He's demonstrated myself Playboy model over. Here's what little -- shot this -- offered me top shelf. First ever Stanley Cup goal for a young Jason numbers one of the seven defensemen the Sharks dressed for game one as they have one less forward on the ice for. Good with the stick. One of the second period and that is where the black box which tied this game definitely came out firing in the second period here's what Culpepper situation before on free. Situation got good jumps up gets back to -- -- little wrist shot often does very little slight deflection was always do. You get through the -- how -- it is -- -- chance when you can jump off from the forty defensive shop you're shot from just what was deflected plays that Jose. That still in the second period the -- with a ton of chances. And we're gonna see a shape coming up here from on TDMA Chicago's headliner of the brilliant variety right here and Mike Bryan quotas based Joba didn't. Just sprawling over to his left hand side kids love it there had to be easy sale a sale on twelve -- who have been out back breaker but yeah. Fantastic in this game with -- 44 saves on to the third Patrick -- a shot off the post here. Yeah out this line you have some dangerous opportunities but -- Nabokov gets a little bit of help from. And then the the game winner as the return above what you mentioned earlier took a penalty but he made up for a year he picks up or -- -- -- -- a breakdown there's not a lot of match -- we talked about. We -- this why healthcare gets tired toward one another to try to get anything going -- called here on who. -- what they give it to Chris first big Bulls one of the best penalty killers and he was woefully hello to stay on the ice charts again. Plus six on four as they -- a walk off and they get a bevy of chances here they just didn't get -- to go in just one of those situations where just -- Carell rebounds and hit. Hit a good look at the play. Had a shot just have all the answers. On this fire right -- -- but just couldn't get a fight that man right there are many who had probably -- his career Giuliani is the star of the game no doubt. 44. Saves and the big players -- Chicago comes through their top three scoring -- Mike James came in -- always points and then Dustin Coughlin with the. The game winning goal in game one Silva told us that the series. Under way and now it starts one full -- becomes very interesting as the Sharks at least temporarily lost their whole lives. Boy lost her home ice but he did a lot of good things -- they can take a lot of positive things from this game. He really controlled -- -- that I think we've talked about before this game but he also did is we won a lot of face off the Chicago Blackhawks want that pocket at all times. In that in this Sharks to a nice job of preventing match by starting with the -- a lot of times so that is where things you can play and watched during the course of the series but I think the Sharks have to continue to do things he did tonight a little more traffic like they talked about in the second third opportunity got to go upstairs on the enemy now sent out HP pavilion -- Brazil -- more on game one. You know we had some great chances. You know mark. Just a number of and we just couldn't get a pass from the Sharks outshot and out drew the Blackhawks through sixty minutes of Sunday hockey. But committed twenty turnovers to Chicago's nine and simply could not convert ample opportunity. Into prosperity but -- -- her leg pretty good but with the style. Couldn't capitalize on this much -- You score chances are there and goaltending was good from both sides and it's been very chances but so their chances to. When 90 am particularly. Should get back veteran into. Better chances to score and there are a lot of us park trainer -- her second appearance and can find a way to get after Eric got to give up her triumph we -- -- plus -- -- and mile traffic so that's that's good. When we were playing our game we're executing well in the post solar -- post Canada we are discipline but just -- -- turnovers and that's that's that's. So I haven't. San Jose played a disciplined game without a single infraction meanwhile the Blackhawks at times had trouble keeping up. Taking five minors including four of the restraining variety the Sharks got their lone goal on the power play but solve -- For more -- we could always straight ahead we got a lot of speed on this team and draw some penalties and no one on the car equipment. Another -- okay.
