As the song goes, Saturday night was alright for fighting for the San Jose Sharks.
And fight they did.
Entering Saturday night's final third period of the regular season, the Sharks found themselves once again trailing to their bitter Pacific Division rival, the Los Angeles Kings.
With a goalie change and a bench shortening, the Sharks came out and played a completely different style of hockey than fans had seen the previous two periods, and were rewarded with a 3-2 overtime victory in the conclusion of the season.
Inconsistency is something hockey fans in San Jose have almost grown accustomed to.
But playing in the NHL's postseason is something else hockey fans in San Jose have grown accustomed to, and this season was no different in that aspect.
With their victory over the Kings, the Sharks secured the seventh seed in the Western Conference, and found out their opponent would be the St. Louis Blues in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The Sharks' inconsistencies could yet again be the main reason why the club may fall short of winning their first Stanley Cup. But even with the issue, there are certain things they can do to keep them alive to at least fight another day and maybe just advance to the next round.
In many sports, there's a saying that goes, "one game at a time." If the Sharks play with that mentality, and execute these five strategies, they could even advance past the overpowering St. Louis Blues.
