SAN JOSE - Dan Boyle says it’s time people took notice of the San Jose Sharks.
The Sharks’ defenceman didn’t feel San Jose was getting much in the way of support from the hockey world and felt there were many who wanted the Detroit Red Wings to pull off the upset with a victory in Game 7 Thursday.
“We just stuck together,” said Boyle. “There’s a lot of people that did not want us to win this game. Detroit’s got the ... They’ve got their little aura, I don’t know what the word is but I’m sure a lot of the hockey world wanted to see Detroit come back and win this series.
“They wanted to see Detroit in the final four. We just stuck together. Certain teams have that thing about them. Some of the guys they have over there with (Nicklas) Lidstrom, (Pavel) Datsyuk and (Henrik) Zetterberg. I think a lot of people want to see the Sharks lose. That’s something we’ve just got to come together and rally.”
