My hockey team, the San Jose Sharks, are in the playoffs against the Los Angeles Kings this year. It's been a crazy series so far, with several games going into overtime.
The good news is that in two games, the Sharks have scored six goals. The bad news is that they made up for this by not scoring anything in two of the other games. In Saturday's game, they had fifty-two shots, but only one goal.
Ugh. Not good, guys!
Yesterday's game was back-and-forth. No side had a clear lead, and whenever one team scored, the other team seemed to tie it up quickly. At the end of the game, we got a penalty for charging. The referee decided it was a really bad charge, even worse than the ones on his credit card bill, so he made it a five minute penalty, instead of the normal two minutes.
The game went into overtime, and shortly after the penalty was over, the team captain scored. All right! Now the team will advance to Round Two, where they'll go up against [opponent unknown]. My playoff beard lives to see another week! Hopefully in this round, they'll be more consistent about their level of play, instead of fluctuating from game to game.
