SJHN Daily: Hockey Twitter Unites to Cheer Sharks On Against Golden Knights

Published

on

On Sunday, much of the hockey community came together to cheer for the San Jose Sharks in their game against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Even other NHL teams were getting in on the action. Specifically, the Los Angeles Kings and the Dallas Stars were vocal with their support for the Sharks, getting the hashtag #WeAreAllSharks trending.

The Sharks’ victory inched both LA and Dallas closer to securing spots in the playoffs. The Kings currently sit third in the division, with a six-point cushion, while the Stars find themselves in the second wild card spot, just three points ahead of the Golden Knights.

Following Sunday’s comeback win, Timo Meier commented about getting messages from former Sharks and friends on teams who had some playoff hopes tied to the game, like Dallas Stars forward and ex-San Jose captain Joe Pavelski.

“The boys got some texts,” he shared. “I think there was a lot of people cheering for us tonight, so it’s obviously nice. I haven’t checked my phone, so I’m sure there’s a lot of people that are happy about it.”

Meier had previously voiced some big expectations for Sunday’s tilt, saying: “Biggest game of the year, against Vegas, if we can maybe knock them out of the playoffs.”

As it turns out, he might be correct. The Sharks have taken control out of the hands of the Golden Knights, causing them to be reliant on the collapse of other teams in the hunt.

The Golden Knights face the Stars on Tuesday night, giving the Texas team the opportunity to capitalize on what the Sharks have handed them in the standings. A Stars victory would end the playoff hopes for the Golden Knights, so Sharks Territory will likely be returning the support Dallas showed on Sunday.
