     A nice night in San Jose where the San Jose Sharks were playing the Phoenix Coyotes.  The game was intense, with no one scoring until the end of regulation, and then OT.  We go to the shootout, where both teams are ready to go, but in the long run, it was  Lauri Korpikoski who sealed the win with his shootout goal.  The Sharks are now 3-2-1, and the Coyotes are 3-2-0.  So Sharks fans went home unhappy, and won't go to a game for the next six games because of a road trip.  The Sharks will hopefully prevail on their road trip, which should give Sharks fans a happy boost.
