Home sweet home!

The San Jose Sharks return to SAP Center for the first time since the season began on January 13 to face off against the Vegas Golden Knights. It’s been a long and exhausting road to get here, with five of their 12 games thus far going to a shootout and aside from a reshuffling due to COVID-19 protocols, they’ve been playing nearly every-other night so far.

Adding some physicality to the lineup, Kurtis Gabriel will make his debut on the Sharks’ fourth line. Despite allowing six goals against the Los Angeles Kings, Martin Jones is still starting in net, likely because Devan Dubnyk is still dealing with a lower body injury.

Here’s everything you need to know to tune in today:
