the bay area -- a place with natural beauty and a forward thinking spirit. at bank of america, we've been fueling economic growth here for over a century. today we're investing

the sharks did tonight in the third period. >> canadian clam illustrate call a.m. mitt. the fans are blamed with overreacting but you couldn't blame anyone once the sharks freaked out. they lost the game brutally 7- 3. lost their composure. 11 penalties to only 3 by the canucks. as game two starts out with canadian nba star steve nash waving on his home team. patty marleau will wind up tying it with a goal that actually had to be reviewed as you see it sneaked passed and 2- 2 in the first. good game. in the second though, vancouver begins to break away, literally. kevin zips it by niemi and they are in the lead for good. but it will get a whole lot worse as the great sedin twins make an appearance. just toying with the sharks here. daniel and brother henrick is assisting and it is 5-2. pick it up a little later and the sharks are even worse, trailing
12:25 am
7-2. how can you make a sharks score look back in igor turns that into a negative as he opportunities the goalie. he is penalized for the taunting. just completely became un glued down the stretch 2-0. they are down in the series. i will tell you what on television it looked like a complete and total meltdown. our fred inglis sees it unravel in vancouver. was it as bad rinkside as it looked on the tube, fred? >> it was just much louder, i guarantee you here at the rogers arena. i'm just next to the locker- room where the visitor sharks have come and gone and don't have much to talk about. the final 28 minutes of this game it looked like a professional tinman cage match and the sharks even lost that battle. but as you were saying number 55igor, he was just out of control at times tonight. igor was called for six penalty by himself.
12:26 am
six penalties. and as you showed, one of them was after he scored the san jose sharks final meaningless goal. even big ben had to say this was a bad effort. >> lots of penalties and i guess it's going to cost us. with the team down there they scored in the powerplay. that was a dangerous powerplay and we have to stay out of the box. we are looking forward to getting home and doing our job there. >> did you think that basically as a team you lost your cool tonight? >> no. i don't think we lost our cool. i think we took some bad penalties. i didn't see us losing our cool. you know, the guys get upset when you are getting embarrassed. and we were being embarrassed. i didn't see as losing our cool. >> yeah, coach todd defended igor's actions in tonight's game. but this team the sharks have now one just one of six games against the canucks this season. and they don't appear to have anywhere or any clue on solving the canucks right now, mark. thanks, fred.
12:27 am
just bottom line embarrassing. it looked for a while like nobody was going to do any good for the bay area tonight. the giants all of a sudden having trouble in the late innings. and particularly painful when it comes against the dodgers and a former teammate. the dodgers trailed all night. but 3 in the 8th for la. former giant uribe the key hit right in the middle of it. brian wilson was brought in early. a two run double cuts it to 5- 4. he scored on a james loany single. 9 giants had an extra base hit all night but they get one here. ticket to ride, cody ross three run shot and two out and the giants win it 8-5. so much for the as putting a little distance between themselves and the rest of the web. at least for new. matsui with the clutch hit rbi single at 6. 3-3 with the twins. and it stays that way until the 10th. but trevor pluup had three rbis
