Alex Pietrangelo goal from center ice 3/17/11

Is giving up a goal like this worth being benched for the next game?

Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings has been brilliant most of the year. This was not his highlight moment. Should the Kings play Jonathan Bernier for their huge tilt against Anaheim tomorrow night? View video above:

Monday Prediction

Sharks Look to Sweep Season Series Against Chicago

The Pick: San Jose +105 over Chicago

Last week: 2-0

Sometimes for a team such as the San Jose Sharks that have lost two in a row, the best thing to do is go on the road. That's the situation for the Sharks after dropping two straight shootouts at home. Suddenly, the Kings, Coyotes, and Stars are in the Sharks rear view mirror for the Pacific Division title. The good news for San Jose is that they have beaten tonight's opponent three times this season after the Blackhawks eliminated them from the postseason last year. Antti Niemi has played well against his former team posting a 3-0 record with an astonishing .933 save percentage. Chicago lost in overtime yesterday in Washington but have only lost once in regulation in their last ten. They are a bit thin on defense tonight with the injury to Brain Campbell yesterday. We don't see the Sharks losing three in a row and expect them to relish the possibility of sweeping Chicago.
