Scott Gomez will play his first game as a Shark when they take on the Avs for Saturday afternoon hockey at the Tank.
Thanks to about half the season being lopped off by the lockout, there are quite a few scheduling quirks in 2013. One of them is that the Sharks will play a number of Saturday afternoon games at the Tank this year. 3 of their 24 home games are 1PM Saturday starts, beginning with this tilt against Jamie McGinn and the Colorado Avalanche.
