Sharks first game is October 1 at Colorado. The home opener will be Thursday, October 8 against Columbus after a three-game road trip against Colorado, Anaheim, and Los Angeles. The two Eastern Conference teams the Sharks will be facing twice are the Washington Capitals and the Buffalo Sabres. Edit: Apparently, there are two games against the Flyers as well. Hmmm. Edit #2: Here is the Sharks-exclusive schedule on their site if you don't want to go through all the filters.
