Sharks Gameday: Hello Once Again Ol' Buddy Ol' Pal

Complete Coverage >

Andrew Raycroft, 0-3-0 on the year with a 3.39 GAA and .894 SV%, will be in net tonight for Dallas as they play their second game of a back to back. Antti Niemi in net for San Jose.

The Sharks had an optional morning skate this morning which means no official word on lines or pairings. I assume the lines will stay the same as they did against Detroit and the Sharks third pairing will have Justin Braun replacing Jason Demers, but that's just a guess based upon what happened against Detroit on Thursday.

Some other assorted links to keep you occupied until game time:

  • Kevin Kurz of CSN's Sharks Talk tees up tonight's game against the Stars, focusing on the Stars recent struggles and other assorted goodness.
    David Pollak of Working The Corners previews how the Sharks will improve their "killer instinct" against Dallas and gets some quotes from McLellan about the Sharks 30th ranked penalty kill.
  • Defending Big D on tonight's game: "All signs point to a challenging night for the Stars. They'll have to reverse many trends to get a result tonight. If one thing looks in their favor, it's that they nearly always play San Jose extremely tough. They'll need to in order to represent backup Andrew Raycroft well."
  • Daryl Reaugh is always good for a laugh and excellent insight, and he doesn't disappoint with his two-part series on "goalie bowling."

Puck drops around 5:07 PM.
