Cheechoo hat trick powers Sharks (AP): Jonathan Cheechoo scored three goals for the second time this season against Anaheim, leading the San Jose Sharks to a 6-4 victory over the Mighty Ducks on Wednesday night. Tom Preissing got the go-ahead goal on a power play with 7:04 left in the game and Evgeni Nabokov made 35 saves, helping end Anaheim's three-game winning streak and the Sharks' three-game skid.
I don't really enjoy close playoff races. Fortunately for me it looks like we may not have one, and not in a good way.
Major drawback to all these three point games. But as a whole, the new rules get a big thumbs up.
