The San Jose Sharks are going from facing the Pacific Division’s worst team to now facing off against one of its best. The team took a short trip to Nevada, where they’ll face the Vegas Golden Knights for the penultimate game of their regular season series. An eight-point difference spans between the third-place Vegas and seventh-place San Jose — not an impossible gap to overcome, but certainly an unlikely one.
