For three games Ryan McLeod Oilers Jersey , the San Jose Sharks have had more speed, discipline and depth than the Anaheim Ducks.
If they can repeat that formula for one more game, the Sharks will move onto the second round of the playoffs.
Joonas Donskoi scored one goal and set up another to start a four-goal barrage in the second period and the Sharks raced past Anaheim for the third straight game, beating the Ducks 8-1 on Monday night for a 3-0 series lead.
”We understand there’s a lot of work to do,” captain Joe Pavelski said. ”Eliminating teams is always tough. That’s kind of where our mindset shifts, I think. We’ll see a few things that we can do better, and a few things we’re doing well. That commitment from us is going to go a long way to stay with what we’re doing.”
Right now just about everything is working for the Sharks, who had eight goal-scorers in the highest-scoring playoff game in franchise history and got a 45-savve performance from Martin Jones.
San Jose used its superior speed to create odd-man rushes that paid off when Donskoi scored and then set up Marcus Sorensen in the opening four minutes of the second period and then turned the game into a laugher with four power-play goals after the Ducks spent most of their energy slashing and cross-checking.
”They can take as many of those as they want to, we’ll take the power plays,” coach Peter DeBoer said. ”They take penalties, that’s a fact. During the season they do and we anticipated that it would be like that in the playoffs and it has been. It’s on us to make them pay for making those plays and decisions Shaquem Griffin Color Rush Jersey , and we have.
Eric Fehr and Tomas Hertl added goals later in the second to turn this all-California series into a rout. Logan Couture had a goal and two assists, Pavelski, Evander Kane and Timo Meier scored power-play goals in the third period, for the Sharks, who have outscored the Ducks 14-3 through the first three games of the first-round series.
San Jose will look to complete the sweep in Game 4 at home Wednesday night. Only four NHL teams have lost a best-of-seven series after winning the first three games with the Sharks the last to do it in 2014 in the first round against Los Angeles.
Rickard Rakell scored a power-play goal but the Ducks once again looked a step slow against the speedier Sharks. Anaheim has scored three goals all series, including just one at even strength.
John Gibson allowed five goals on 24 shots before being pulled after two periods. Ryan Miller allowed three power-play goals in the third.
”From my perspective it’s hard to forget what we just did. Very undisciplined, very disappointed in our reaction in the hockey game,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. ”Those are the things we have to address. We’re not going to get yourself any kind of opportunity to take the number of penalties we took, and I call them selfish penalties.”
The game turned early in the second after Brandon Montour fell near center ice, giving the Sharks a two on one. Donskoi converted on a give-and-go with Evander Kane and San Jose was off to the races.
Donskoi then set up the next goal on another odd-man rush when he fed Sorensen, who faked a forehand and then beat Gibson with a backhand on a similar move that led to goals for Kane and Couture in the first two games.
Jones then made a big stop on Rakell from the slot to preserve the two-goal lead and Fehr helped put the game away when he skated through two defenders and beat Gibson up high to make it 4-1.
Then the Ducks started their parade to the penalty box and the Sharks capitalized.
Fresh off the two wins in Anaheim Nathan Shepherd Color Rush Jersey , the Sharks were greeted by a frenzied crowd that sparked them to a fast start. Mikkel Boedker got things started when he used his speed to get around Hampus Lindholm and feed an open Couture in the slot for the tap-in into the open net.
Anaheim answered when Rakell got his first point of the series when he scored on a one-timer on the power play.
NOTES: D Andy Welinski was back in the lineup for the Ducks after being scratched in Game 2 for Kevin Bieksa. … F Jason Chimera got his first action of the series for Anaheim in place of Antoine Vermette. … Sharks C Joe Thornton, who has been out since Jan. 23 with a knee injury, took part in pregame warmups once again but isn’t ready to play.
Binge drinking for hours in stadium parking lots, a few Philly fans flexed their beer muscles with throws that were as on point as Nick Foles connecting with his Eagles receivers.
Sure, the Minnesota Vikings fans who walked through hostile enemy territory that would set the stage for malfeasance at the NFC championship game had to expect the boos, the four-letter words, the obscene gestures, the shouts to go home, the, well, the misconduct list goes on for churlish Eagles fans.
On a few occasions Martinas Rankin Color Rush Jersey , cooler heads prevailed.
As in fans opened coolers, plucked cheap beers and chucked unopened cans at Vikings fans.
This was a dangerous twist on Target Field for the Minnesota faithful.
Social media users captured snapshots of fans dodging and weaving cans, crushed red solo cups and all kinds of trash launched toward anyone in purple and gold, and many more Vikings fans complained on Twitter of witnessing random acts of violence. Some fans whined their Vikings hats were swiped off their heads and tossed into urinals before Eagles fans showed why their team was No. 1 in the NFC.
Mongo from “Blazing Saddles” would surely tip his cap at the way Eagles fans can sock a horse .
Philly boos were supplanted by Minnesota boo-hoos .
Eagles fans are coming to your city.
And the Massholes are joining in on the Super Bowl bash.
Patriots-Eagles is more than a 2005 Super Bowl rematch. It sticks two of the more maligned – and misunderstood – fanbases in the NFL within striking distance of each other at US Bank Stadium.
It’s time to line `em up – the Santa Snowball Hurlers vs. the Deflategate Truthers in a fight for the checkered flag of most obnoxious fans.
But certainly not the most violent.
The West Coast takes a (tarnished) gold among American sports fans, with stabbings reported at games in San Diego and San Francisco; while fan arrests at New York Giants games generally lead the league.
Eagles fans involved were in a scuffle with and police officers in one parking lot that left at least one fan beaten and bloodied before the NFC championship game. Police only reported two arrests for disorderly conduct and one for assault on police. They also reported three arrests for counterfeit ticket sales.
Patriots fans invoke a different kind of hate.
NFL fans from Kansas City to Jacksonville are just sick – or jealous – of the Patriots going to the Super Bowl and watching New England celebrate on duck boats and parade routes. Patriots fans are often called entitled or nauseating for their Super Bowl gloating. There are New England teens who believe Super Bowl appearances are as much a given right as lobster rolls and clam chowder.
It wasn’t all serious in Philly.
After the game, huge crowds gathered in neighborhoods around the city cheering and chanting.
Earlier in the day, workers in Philadelphia who jokingly called themselves the ”Crisco Cops” greased light poles to try to prevent fans from climbing up them after the game.
During the fourth quarter, Philadelphia police posted an image of Crisco on Twitter . While urging fans to celebrate responsibly, they wrote, ”Now comes the time in the night where we must warn everyone about the dangers of Saturated Fats.”
Just don’t tell Vikings fans about frivolity in Philly.
Jana Hokinson of Manson Bradley Chubb Color Rush Jersey , Iowa, was one Vikings fan who traveled to Philadelphia for the game. She told Minneapolis’ WCCO-AM radio that she walked into the stadium with a group of other Vikings fans. Suddenly, two men in the front of the group were hit in the head with something and bleeding.
”One guy had a cracked forehead and the back of his right ear was just bleeding. The other guy, it was his left ear,” she said.
She said that security told their group there was nothing they could do.
Once she got to her seat, the fans around her were giving her group some good-natured grief at first, but after the Vikings scored, one of her sisters got spit on by Eagles fans, and another sister had food thrown at her.
She said she left after the third quarter and ”security escorted us out because I got beer cans thrown at me.”
Hokinson said they were escorted to the car, but they had promised to give a man from Minneapolis a ride to the airport. Security had to go back and retrieve that Vikings fan from his club seat because Eagles fans were blocking him and wouldn’t let him leave.
”It was crazy,” she told the radio station.
When the Eagles fans come to Minnesota: ”I just hope our fans stay classy. Because that’s a whole other level of crazy down there. And I know the fans up in Minnesota http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jonathan-cooper-jersey , they’re not going to stoop that low. I hope they don’t.”
Yes, that’s classic sweatheart thinking that everyone in Minnesota is so nice.
Not always true. Not necessarily a problem. The all-day tailgating isn’t generally in full 0.20 BAC levels at the Super Bowl as it is on NFL Sundays and the league will generally assemble a massive task force to thwart fan violence.
Vikings receiver Adam Thielen said he hopes Minnesotans hold no grudges.
”You can’t group all Eagles fans into that group,” Thielen said one day after his team bus was pelted with beer on its way out of Philly. ”It’s kind of the same thing with the NFL sometimes. If somebody gets in trouble, it kind of gets put on everybody.”
Still, it might be a good thing Mary Richards isn’t around to toss her winter cap in the air.
It might end up caught and tossed in a toilet.
