Ducks at Sharks Preseason: Lines, how to watch & open thread

Two preseason contests are left before real hockey begins.

Once again, we’re facing a San Jose Sharks preseason game that if you don’t see at SAP Center tonight, you’re pretty much out of luck. There will be streamed audio on the Sharks Audio Network, but no broadcast of tonight’s matchup against the Anaheim Ducks.

More bad news: Sharks goaltender Adin Hill suffered an upper boy injury (a puck to his left arm/wrist, per Sheng Peng of SJ Hockey Now) in practice yesterday and will not play tonight. Alexei Melnichuk has been recalled from the San Jose Barracuda and will likely back up James Reimer.
