For San Jose Sharks fans this postseason, the only thing better than seeing their former stars succeed would be the demise of their most bitter division rival.

That was made clear on Twitter today after Victor E. Green — the Dallas Stars’ mascot — reminded Sharks fans of their success against the Vegas Golden Knights in 2019:

That 2019 postseason, where the San Jose Sharks reached the Western Conference Finals, was also the last time the team reached the postseason.

The past four playoffs, Sharks fans have been forced to root for former fan favorites such as Joe Thornton, Joonas Donskoi, Barclay Goodrow, Timo Meier, and Brent Burns. Joe Pavelski is the only fan favorite remaining this postseason, still looking for his first Stanley Cup.

The Sharks’ social media team showed love for the former captain and Pete DeBoer by going Stars green:

The Stars, looking to complete a “reverse sweep” of the Golden Knights, just took Game Five to force a Game Six in Dallas.
