  • Tyler Kennedy has been great this season when in the lineup but, unfortunately, he's rarely been in the lineup. He'll miss tonight's game against Anaheim due to his fourth injury of the season, this time of the lower-body variety. [CSN Bay Area]
  • Despite struggling against some of the worst teams in the league like Buffalo and Columbus, the Sharks have gone 5-1-1 against in-state rivals Anaheim and Los Angeles this season. They'll have a chance to improve to 6-1-1 tonight when they host the Ducks. [Mercury News]
  • The NHL is gearing up to confirm last week's report that an AHL West division is taking shape, including a move by the Worcester Sharks to the Bay Area where they'll play games at SAP Center. We'll have Jon Wold at the Tank for the official press conference this afternoon. [Mercury News]
  • As the season intensifies, the Sharks will be relying more heavily on their new-look top defense pairing of Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Brent Burns. Vlasic has topped the 25-minute mark in five of his past six games after only playing 25 minutes or more in four of the team's first 41. [Gackle Report]
  • Despite the angry complaints from beat writers, the NHL All-Star weekend is perfect the way it is. [SB Nation]
