Sharks edge Canucks 3-2 via shootout win

Jan 3, 2012, 1:01 AM EDT

All the regular season wins in 2011-12 won’t erase the pain of the stanchion-assisted 2011 Western Conference Finals defeat, but it’s the best measure of revenge the San Jose Sharks can manage against the Vancouver Canucks in January. They edged their hated rivals 3-2 (SO) in a great game to introduce the NBC Sports Network.

    It’s too bad the Sharks hate the Canucks. Vancouver is too preoccupied with the Chicago rivalry to put much stake into perennial playoff losers like San Jose.

    Seriously, I’m not even trying to be mean. It’s just really hard to consider this a rivalry until the Sharks start competing with top teams deep in the playoffs.

        Yeah totally, what decent team doesn’t make it to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals every year?
