NHL: Stanley Cup Final-San Jose Sharks at Pittsburgh Penguins Don Wright-USA TODAY Sports

The hockey season is not dead folks! Last night, something called Martin Jones who is apparently a goaltender in the San Jose Sharks organization stood tall and soundly declared the Sharks shall not slip into that dark night! Not yet anyway. Aside from a pair of goals scored by the Penguins in short order in the first period, Jones was a beast. The Penguins were relentless last night, but with some timely defense and goaltending, the Sharks were able to extend the season.

It's Friday folks. It going to be a steamy one out there. It's that time of year where we start hearing about people leaving pets or little people in hot cars, so be conscious and aware when your out and about today. If you have dogs and they spend their days outside, remember to get them some shade and check that they have a good supply of (cold) water they are able to access.
