Sharks at Golden Knights, 4/21: Lines, gamethread & how to watch
Not only is tonight another night where Patrick Marleau adds a number to the NHL’s game played record, but it will also mark his 900th straight game, an iron man streak that started in April 2009. He remains second among active players behind Florida Panthers defender Keith Yandle.
Josef Korenar will start in net for the San Jose Sharks. In Monday’s 3-2 shootout loss, the team gave up five power play opportunities, where the Vegas Golden Knights took advantage for both of their regulation goals. Martin Jones saw 40 shots through three periods and overtime.
