Sharks' Tank Looking Empty
It looks like the Sharks season has finally come to and end. They are not out of the series yet, but it is a safe assumption that they are already packing for the golf course.
The Blackhawks are on an absolute tear and nothing seems to be stopping them. They are playing great team defense in front of their netminder, Antti Niemi. Niemi has been consistent throughout the playoffs. Rarely would you see him out of position or giving up easy goals. You don't have to worry about their blue liners either. Duncan Keith and Brian Campbell having been playing lights out. The real hero for the Hawks' is Dustin Byfugklien, he has been a force against the Sharks, with 3 GWG's. He is playing with Kane and Toews right now and their line has been performing exceptionally well. Toews now has at least a point in his last 12 games, setting a new record for the Blackhawks organization.
At this point for the Sharks', they must pull off a Flyers'-like comeback. However, I don't see this happening. Chicago is too hot right now for the Sharks' to oust their dominating play. Look for a Flyers/Blackhawks Stanley Cup.
