TRH 2ND ROUND PLAYOFF RECAP 2 – SAN JOSE SHARKS: DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK

*THE FOLLOWING BELOW IS NOT WRITTEN BY THE ROYAL HALF,
BUT RATHER PUMPERNICHOLL, OUR MASTER RECAPPER*
 

KINGS 4, SHARKS 3, MINDS BLOWN
 

Unsettled.

That's the best way to describe my state after the Los Angeles Kings shutout the San Jose Sharks in Game 1. Sure, I was over the moon because the Kings won, but I couldn't shake the feeling that I screwed up. "That's the game I should have gone to," I kept telling myself.

You see, I haven't been to a Kings-Sharks game since 2011, when this happened:

 
 
Second worst money I've ever spent.

And then this happened:
 

Worst money I've ever spent.

 
So, yeah. 
 
I guess I'll just have to go on faith that the Kings won't blow a big lead and that the magic can continue. And maybe, just maybe, I can finally see the Kings beat the Sharks in person. Not to erase those haunting images from two years ago, but to have something even better to look back on from now on.
 
Fat chance, I know.

PREGAME:

OH SNAP! 

San Jose hella-loves their hashtags.

Still not sure how anyone can hate Kings fans.
 
 
FIRST PERIOD:
So this was an actual conversation that people had?

Ladies after my own heart.

 Chuckles loves him some hot carl action.

Did you know that the chomp proves you're an authentic fan?
 
 
SECOND PERIOD:
I don't think Gretzky cares anymore, either,
I guess that's NorCal speak for "2-0 Kings."

I wonder if Sharks fans know that cartoons aren't real…

#ALL #THE #HASHTAGS!!!!!

Psh. Big deal.
*starts drinking heavily*

*curls up in fetal position*


 
THIRD PERIOD:
*more excessive drinking coupled with whimpering*

Seriously, is there anything a Sharks fan loves more than hashtags?

*uncontrollable sobbing*

#SharksTerritory

…something is happening…

I have a lot more in common with Ponyboy than I ever imagined.

I wonder if Art Vandelay imports or exports Kings victories.

Nick and Daryl salute you, sir!

Sure, but there's no way that…

!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get comfy, folks. This should be fun to watch.

And that's the bottom line, because Stone Cold said so!

Sharks fans still believe!

No Sharks fan would be THAT dumb, right?

 This is the perfect Twitter name.

John Forslund: Kings assbuddy.

So you agree that they didn't try?

REALLY, no Sharks fan would be THAT dumb, right?!

Fresno Monsters forever.

REALLY, SHARKS FANS?!

Never change, Kings fans.

Be careful, Kings. Sharks fans are comin'!
 

 


TRH THREE STARS OF THE NIGHT:

 
 3. Jeff Carter
 

I could watch Jeff Carter score all day. (Bet on his chances at www.bwin.com!)

 

2. Darryl Sutter
 

Thank whichever deity you prefer for those missing glasses, because:

1. Trevor Lewis and Tyler Toffoli

 

*EXHALE*
Thanks for the new memories.
