As a mood-setter, we very nearly posted a "Jeremy Roenick – the Coyote Years" clip – you know, for sheer folly. But that wouldn't do much to stir up any bad blood, and this series needs a little fight, seeing that the Sharks have won nine straight by a combined score of 33-15.
So we found this little gem. If you want to reduce a longtime San Jose Sharks fan to a babbling mass of nostalgia and corny sentiment, just mention the Cow Palace or Link Gaetz. This Chicago-San Jose clip from the rodeo barn brings the two together nicely.
Enjoy the game.
