Oilers at Sharks: Lines, open thread and how to watch

Guess what everyone! We have our domain back. You can now find us at! There are things that need to migrate over, such as comments, so please bear with us while that happens. We’re slowly unpacking those moving boxes though and we’re settling in.

It’s a day game today, so no morning skate to watch. I’m doing a double header today, Sharks in the afternoon with the family and Barracuda this evening to get the lay of the land for media moving forward.
