will face off against tonight in the Sharks first meeting against the Canucks since last year's Western Conference Finals series. Expect and James Vandermeer to start on the Sharks third pairing for the second straight game.
There's no shortage of bad blood between these two teams, and it didn't even start last season. I remember a game at HP Pavilion maybe three seasons ago where, following the final buzzer, there were some heated words exchanged as both teams went to their locker rooms. Let the bile flow like the Nile and get this underway.
Some other assorted links to keep you occupied until game time:
- Kevin Kurz of CSN's Sharks Talk talks with James Vandermeer about how he stays focused being in and out of the lineup so much.
- David Pollak of Working The Corners with his usual pre-game goodies.
- The Province previews the game and thinks that it is a good test for the Canucks in the midst of a three game winning streak.
- Frazer McLaren has been recalled from Worcester.
Puck drops at 7:07 PM.
