Preview: Panthers at Sharks
The Sharks look to get back to winning ways tonight against the Florida Panthers
After a rough loss to the tied-for-last Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night, the Sharks look to get back in the win column at home against Roberto Luongo's Florida Panthers tonight.
The Sharks will have a slightly different lineup going for tonight's game, with Barclay Goodrow being sent down to the Barracuda.

Know Your Enemy: Litter Box Cats
- Barclay Goodrow has been sent down to the AHL, but as the Sharks didn't practice yesterday we don't know who'll be replacing him just yet.
- Logan Couture had surgical staples removed from his ankle and took his first steps with a boot this weekend. We still don't have a very good idea of exactly when he'll be returning, but any progress is good news.
- Both aspects of the Sharks' special teams have been struggling early on. They're 21st in PP% and 26th in PK%, even after getting off to a good start killing penalties. It's important for the team to improve here, and the sooner the better.
