The Sharks embark on their first big road trip of the season, heading to the east coast for a tough slate of games. That schedule starts with Washington, who split the season series with San Jose a season ago. It's always great to see how the Sharks match up against top eastern opponents, and any excuse to see Alexander Ovechkin play is a good one.

Last meeting: So that Joel Ward guy seems pretty cool. Except for him scoring the game-winner in overtime against the Sharks in the team's last meeting.
- An unstoppable force : immovable object :: Capitals PP : Sharks PK. Okay, okay, so we know the Caps' power play is virtually unstoppable, but the Sharks haven't allowed a power play goal all season.
- Can Martin Jones' strong start continue? He's allowed just one goal in his first 120 minutes of play with the Sharks.
- It's a homecoming for Joel Ward, who played with Washington for four seasons.
