Sharks vs. Flames Preview: Taking care of business

New, comments

San Jose returns home to face Calgary.

Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

The Sharks return home to face the Flames and Coyotes, a couple of Pacific squads San Jose can send packing to increase its lead on a playoff spot. First thing's first: the Calgary Flames on Thursday night at the Shark Tank.

We've spilled many pixels on the mediocrity of the Flames so I won't go too much further on this matter. Sufficed to say, the Sharks really should paste these guys — and quite frankly they need to in order to solidify their place in the playoff race. San Jose did well to survive its last road trip and taking care of business at home can relieve some of the pressure for the next road swing.
