Preview and Predictions: 49ers vs. Saints

The time has come. The NFL playoffs are in full swing, and the 49ers are finally back in the mix. After a pathetic eight years without a playoff appearance, the red and gold have claimed the number 2 seed with a 13-3 record. That’s quite an improvement from last season’s record, which was a sad 6-10. The team’s turn-around can be attributed to one thing: a new coaching staff. Namely, head coach Jim Harbaugh. He’s definitely the right man for the job. The Niners needed an offensively-minded coach, and Harbaugh, being a former NFL quarterback and former Stanford head coach, was a no-brainer. The team also brought over a few other coaches from Stanford, and it has translated into many, many wins. The talent was there all along, it just wasn’t being utilized correctly. They now have the number one ranked defense in the NFL, and an offense that plays well enough to win every game. And that’s why they’re going to beat the Saints.

2011 NHL Playoffs: Round 3

2011 NHL Playoffs Conference Finals

The Conference Semifinals were INTENSE. We had two sweeps in the Eastern Conference: the Tampa Bay Lightning swept the Washington Capitals, and the Boston Bruins, with Tim Thomas’ god like performance, swept the Philadelphia Flyers. In the Western Conference, the Vancouver Canucks beat the Nashville Predators in 6, and the Sharks…oh boy, our Sharks. I love ’em, I have a ton of confidence in them, but damn do they make me nervous sometimes.

2011 NHL Playoffs: Round 2

NHL Playoffs 2011 Round 2

We’re already one game into Round 2 of the 2011 NHL playoffs and our San Jose Sharks begin their series against the Detroit Red Wings tonight. I just want to say: DAMMIT I LOVE PLAYOFFS HOCKEY! Every game that I’ve been able to watch, I’ve been glued to my TV and they’ve all been great games. All of the blood, sweat, and tears that goes into every game and every series is so addicting. I had my phone set to send me updates for pretty much every scoring change for nearly every game, which made me sound very popular for the past week and a half.

Sharks Rally Historic Comeback to Win in OT

(Image taken from NHL.com)

After going 4-0 in less than twenty-five minutes of hockey in Game 3 against the LA Kings, the Sharks staged an unbelievable comeback to tie the game 5-5, before taking the cake with Devin Setoguchi’s wristshot in OT. Check out the highlights here:

.

Starting goaltender Antti Niemi was pulled from the game a few minutes into the second period and Antero Niittymaki was left to pick up the reigns for the rest of the game. Personally, I can’t fault Niemi for the Game 2 loss, as the entire team was playing really shitty in front of him, but he looked very shaky in Game 3. So this begs the question, will the Sharks continue with their starting goalie in Game 4, or will they keep Niittymaki in the net? I don’t think Niitty got enough playtime in before the playoffs started, but I liked the way the team played in front of him. They recognized that he hasn’t played in a while and stopped relying on their goalie to make the saves when they’re being lazy, like they sometimes had been with Niemi in net; there seemed to be more of a sense of urgency once Niittymaki came in. Hit up our poll below and tell us who you think San Jose will start between the pipes on Thursday, and tell us why in the comments section below!
