The Penguins and Sharks will meet Thursday in a potential Stanley Cup Final preview at Consol Energy Center. Bylsma thinks his team will be tested against the best the Western Conference has to offer.
"I've probably seen them play a little more than Chicago," Bylsma said. "With all due respect to Chicago, I think [the Sharks are] maybe the best team in League right now in a lot of different areas. Their special teams are in the middle of the pack number-wise but their 21 even-strength goals from the [Joe] Thornton line, 20 from [Patrick] Marleau's line and Joe Pavelski is their third-line center.
"The way they come at you, the way they play, they're certainly, I think, the best team in the League right now."
