Sharks rookie tourney report
Part 3 of 3
9/18/04 - By GJ Berg

GJ Berg reports from Anaheim, California, site of this year's (2nd Annual) rookie tournament between the Sharks, Anaheim Mighty Ducks, Los Angeles Kings and Phoenix Coyotes. This is the final installment of a three part report...

Day 3

Coyotes won 4-2 over Ducks (using the same goalie they had when playing against the Sharks, but a different one than when they faced the Kings).

Scratches: 55, 56, 33

Starters: 39, 40, 49, 64, 65, 36

Sharks took the first penalty at 4:45: 64, hooking. But they got a SHG at 4:54, Armstrong (third or fourth goal of tourney?), unassisted.

The Sharks struck again at 10:45. 49 from 65. One shift later, the Kings called their time out.

Kings took a penalty at 15:16, and the Sharks drew more blood at 17:15 (one second left on penalty clock) 63 from 53 and 50.

The last part of the period saw the Sharks shorthanded, 53 taking a tripping penalty at 17:57. Score after one: Sharks 3-0 Kings. SOG SJ 10; Kings 10.

Second period, Kings ended the shut out at 6:08. SJ 62 took a interference penalty at 8:13, which resulted in a Kings PPG at 8:22.

SJ 53 took a tripping penalty at 8:52. Kings changed goalies at 11:10.

SJ 50 took a roughing penalty at 12:15 (he came from the bench, but I don't think he did the infraction while seated, but had made it to the bench before having to change his seat to the sin bin).

At 17:31, the fireworks exploded. Olson (52) and LA 59 got into a fight, with an extra two for instigating and a 10 minute misconduct on the Kings' side. Kings netted a shortie at 18:19. Score after two: 3-3. SOG SJ 9->19; Kings 11-> 21.

The third period only saw two minors on each team. I noted that in some cases when the puck was sent down to the other end of the ice on a clearing pass, the Sharks players weren't always hustling to the bench for a change (regardless of icing or not). Score unchanged. SOG Sharks 13->32; Kings 11->32.

In the overtime, the Sharks 58 was called for hooking at 2:55. The Kings did not convert. The Kings added 4 SOG to their total; the Sharks didn't manage to get one SOG.

A win was required to get the Sharks into the championship game. (Tied in points with the Ducks and the tie breaker is the head-to-head game, which the Sharks lost.)

Final day of tourney to feature the Sharks v Coyotes in the consolation game (4pm) and the Kings v Ducks in the championship game (7pm).
