Gameday Thread: Sharks vs. Coyotes

New, comments

Just 24 hours after a 3-2 overtime loss to the Ducks, the Sharks are back at it with a preseason game against the Coyotes.

Thearon W. Henderson

Following a 3-2 overtime loss to Anaheim, the Sharks are back at it tonight at the Tank hosting Phoenix in their third game of the exhibition season. Overshadowing the outcome of last night's game was a collision between Raffi Torres and Anaheim's Emerson Etem which resulted in both forwards sustaining injuries. The extent of Torres' remains unclear but the ex-Coyotes forward won't be suiting up against his former team tonight. Here's your pre-game reading followed by projected rosters and line combinations for both teams:

Projected Coyotes Lineup

Max Domi - Mike Ribeiro - David Moss

Paul Bissonnette - Brandon McMillan - Jordan Szwarz

Oliver Ekman-Larsson - Connor Murphy

Mike Smith
Mark Visentin

Eriah Hayes, Curt Gogol and Sena Acolatse are also listed as part of the Sharks' roster and any one of them could draw into the lineup in place of the bottom-six forwards listed above or, in the case of Acolatse, Matt Tennyson. The goaltending matchup is slated to be Sateri vs. Smith for all sixty minutes. As far as I can tell, there isn't a television or radio broadcast of this game so you're stuck with Twitter or the ice tracker if you won't be in attendance tonight.
