There's always something about a match-up between the Sharks and Red Wings that's extra enjoyable. Maybe it's the playoff history between the teams. Maybe it's the aesthetics (teal & black versus red & white just works so well). Maybe it's because the Sharks have been built to emulate the Red Wings team from the top down.

Or maybe it's because the Sharks have been kicking some octopus ass lately. In the last 20 games between these teams (playoffs included), the Sharks have gone 14-6. Despite some ridiculously close games and series, San Jose just seems to get the better of the Wings more often than not.
