Gameday Thread: Sharks vs. Coyotes

New, comments

The Sharks could have Brent Burns in the lineup for the first time this season when they take on the Coyotes at 1PM this afternoon.

Brent Burns will likely make his highly anticipated return to the lineup this afternoon as the Sharks take on Phoenix for the second time this season. Both teams lost to Chicago in their prior game and probably aren't in a great mood, especially after having to wake up early for this one. Should be a good game. Here's some pre-game reading ahead of the 1PM puck drop at the Tank:
