Sharks vs. Jets: Quiet rumblings at the Tank

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Sharks return from a two-game road trip in Alberta to play ... another Canadian team.

Currently, I write this preview as I'm on a bus somewhere between Ontario and Quebec, I'm not entirely certain. It seems fitting that as I spend my spring break in Canada, the Sharks play Canadian teams. As it is, the Sharks lost in Calgary on Monday and then won in Edmonton on Tuesday. Now, it's back to the Tank where they face the Winnipeg Jets.

I like the shores of America!

Comfort is yours in America!

Knobs on the doors in America,

Wall-to-wall floors in America!

Essentially, this could be a meaningless game because the Sharks are already in the playoffs. Except, no, because the Ducks exist and the Flames had ONE job. So now the Sharks only have two points up on the Ducks.

Adam Burish underwent a medical procedure because of an injury sustained during the game in Edmonton. Freddie Hamilton was called up from Worcester this morning. That they called up Hamilton and not Eriah Hayes or Bracken Kearns is probably telling that the Sharks want to win the division with their young prospects, and also that they want to beat the Ducks.

The Jets are the Jets. I guess they have Devin Setoguchi still or something I don't know man they're the Jets.
