After a morale-boosting, Sharkcuda-led win over the Chicago Blackhawks last night, the San Jose Sharks are making a quick trip to Nevada for a final game against the Vegas Golden Knights, who are four points short of making the postseason with just four remaining games to make up the difference. A Sharks win tonight could help toward making Vegas miss the playoffs for the first time in their short existence so far.
