Maybe debuts are the key to regulation wins for the San Jose Sharks. Alex True made his season debut in Monday’s 6-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche and now Joachim Blichfeld will make his own season debut in tonight’s rematch against the Avs. He’ll be replacing Marcus Sorensen on True’s wing on the fourth line.
The Avalanche can’t be happy with how things went for them on Monday night, putting up an early 2-0 lead then then allow six unanswered goals. But the make-or-break factor for the Sharks will always be goaltending. We’ll see how Martin Jones fares tonight.
