Here’s the deal.
You win today’s game, and you climb up to 4th place again.
You lose, and you just might fall out of playoff contention. Again.
Could you finally beat the Sharks tonight? Please? This is the last time you see them in the regular season. I know you haven’t beat them at all yet. I know it sucks to be playing against Antti Niemi, but that’s what’s up. Deal with it and win this game. You need it.

San Jose lost against the New York Rangers 3-2 on Saturday in a shootout

Duncan Keith, CHI: “We need [points]. To take some positives, we got the one point. We battled back to get it — take that going into the next game and use that as motivation to get two points tomorrow.” (nhl.com)
Dan Boyle, SJS: “We’re at the point of the season now where a point isn’t good enough. We had our chances, for sure. You never know if that point could cost us in the end. Hopefully it doesn’t.” (nhl.com)
