Gameday Thread: Sharks vs. Blackhawks

New, comments

Can the Sharks end their six-game losing streak by defeating the best team in the NHL?

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

By dropping two games against fairly mediocre teams to start this road trip, the Sharks have put themselves in a fairly unenviable position. They'll need to win three of the final four games to post a .500 trip (and remain above .500 overall). The opponents? Chicago tonight, St. Louis on Tuesday, Chicago again a week from now and Dallas. Yikes. But first things first, it's time to avenge their loss to the Blackhawks from a week ago and finally end their six-game losing streak. They'll have a chance to do that tonight at the Madhouse. Here's some pre-game reading ahead of the 5:30PM puck drop:
