The two best teams in the league meet tonight in San Jose.
Antti Niemi will face his former team as the best and second-best clubs in the NHL collide tonight at the Tank. Dave Bolland will be back in the lineup for Chicago, who have yet to lose in regulation this season. Let's hope the Sharks can change that. Here's some pre-game reading ahead of the 7:30PM puck drop:
Sharks vs. Blackhawks: Heavyweights | Fear The Fin
Sharks Gameday: The Selfish Gene | Battle Of California
Sharks-Blackhawks at a glance | CSN Bay Area
Blackhawks @ Sharks: Game Preview | Second City Hockey
The Family and the Fishing Net | The Committed Indian
Prediction: Sharks 4, Blackhawks 2. Patrick Kane leaves the game midway through the second period with an upper-liver injury. Go Sharks.
