Sharks Gameday: The Calm Before The Storm

Complete Coverage >


  • Michal Handzus will be in the lineup to replace Torrey Mitchell tonight. Mitchell is out with an undisclosed injury he sustained during Thursday game against the Kings.
  • Antti Niemi will be in net for San Jose, while Jonathan Quick is expected to start for Los Angeles.
  • San Jose's chance at a fifth straight Division title are looking grim as of this posting, with Phoenix leading the Minnesota Wild 3-1 heading into the third period. If the Coyotes pick up at least a point (which it looks likely they will), the Sharks will face either the Vancouver Canucks or St. Louis Blues in the first round.
  • Ryane Clowe says he is "ready and willing" if the Kings target him tonight.
  • Todd McLellan and Darryl Sutter on what this game means for their teams with the playoffs already clinched.

Puck drops at 7:37 PM.
