They should check it out CSN California dot com Brodie Brazil Kevin -- for more Sharks game days left this is one of them and huge tilt against the Dallas Stars. The last time the stars will be here of course -- go to Texas later on next week I guess we should say -- the final matchup between these two teams but. 3011. Are the Sharks against Dallas that your Kevin why do you think. That this matchup has favorite sentence in the past. I just think it seems like San Jose plays a little bit more aggressive against the scheme against this team probably just as they don't like them. A lot of people only helps us space and with a repair business T Dotson and whatnot. And the -- should have an advantage in this one because Dallas playing the second of back to back Dallas just won ten and two in the second half of back to back games flying -- from Vancouver. Clear customs and I hear they flew in Oakland last night. Gathered -- should have the advantage in terms of in terms of energy. You know it was brought up. By a procedure reported this morning that the Sharks have been taken. A whole lot of penalties in the last two games in the Indiana game hitting take a single one and -- -- scheme in Phoenix who just won. Underneath him on on each side Ortiz on three power plays total combined in the last. What's going on here with the officials obviously we know that the whistles aren't as plentiful in the playoffs but we're not at the playoffs yet so. I think -- to Alter their style and do you think that that means that the style of game be any different percentages. I really wouldn't expect that to continue and it really is two teams are gonna go after each other pretty hard. The same time I have noticed that the phils officials are being a little bit more. Letting letting them play but that also means there it's been a little bit more obstruction one -- so it's a lead currently in the past few weeks is that the refs are. -- kind of letting Morse more stuff goes so. I'm not really sure who that would benefit in this case come. But the Sharks have a very good power plays so I was picked up -- they they might look to at least draw a couple more penalties they have lately. I say this a lot of good people perspective of what it's like inside the sharks' dressing room because for many view while they're wondering what's his -- going through what's it like in their right now the pressure is certainly high. I guess I would say that it is definitely different vibe. Mood atmosphere whatever you once say. Right now most certainly than it was let's go back to November or December and the stakes are different the stakes are much higher at this point. How do you describe. Maybe the general feel not that you get from one specific guy but overall. What you feel when you go in there is it how is it different now than it is than it was earlier in the year. Well I think the guys certainly know they are in the standings and they know how important is it. I don't I don't know how to answer that honestly that that you mean they certainly seem down when their after the loss the other night. But they've never been in this situation -- been in the situation of these guys the last six years on I'm not sure they even quite know how to react to it just yet Dallas of course the other way around they went through this exact same thing last year. Can -- traumatic experience. Maybe in these last few games I don't know. But we'll find out. -- this is definitely new ground for the Sharks talked to Shane -- the other night captain of the Coyotes and he said. You know San Jose he's experiencing the getting factor right now for the first time in a long time. He was saying hey this is something that us the Coyotes go through year after year the year here are absolutely right it is something.
