Sharks vs. Canadiens Preview: Surviving a tough back-to-back

New, comments

The Sharks take on the Canadiens on the second of a back-to-back.

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

San Jose heads home to take on the Montreal Canadiens in what may very well be James Reimer's first start for the Sharks since joining the team on Saturday. Montreal started out the season red-hot but have since fallen all the way down to sixth place in the Atlantic Division. The Habs have won their last two games and come to San Jose motivated as they sit five points out of a playoff spot.
