If the San Jose Sharks are looking for a game to feel good about, taking on the lowly Arizona Coyotes should provide some relief that at least among the worst teams in the league, they aren’t well, the absolute worst. While the Sharks are having a historically bad season, it’s entirely possible the likes of Arizona, Seattle and Montreal may finish the season without cracking 50 points.

Nothing like a remind of how much worse things could be, right?

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