The Neal/Niskanen Era begins tonight.
We expect James Neal to score about 37 goals tonight. God help Matt Niskanen if he makes a defensive error.

The Sharks ride into Pittsburgh on that wave tonight. Back to backs are always tough, although in this case I reminded myself that Detroit to Pittsburgh isn't even as bad as a drive from here to LA. Flight won't be that bad either. The joys of travelling back East. It's going to be a helluva game tonight folks, be sure to tune in.
