Power Rankings: Let Me Take A Selfie

by Ann Frazier & Casey Krygier /

Team photo day: a chance for the finalized roster can come together and take a photo that proves that this is the definitive roster for the 2017-18 season. 

It's also a chance for to make the players take selfies.

As the Sharks were waiting around to take that perfect team photo, we asked them to take selfies to help pass the time. And some of those selfies were better than others. 

6. Dave Barr

Technically, this isn't a selfie, as it was taken by Johan Hedberg. However, the phone was in selfie mode, so we're counting it. In that, we're including it in this list but it, unfortunately, ranks at the bottom of the selfies taken.

5. Marcus Sorensen, Kevin Labanc, and Dylan DeMelo

Save for DeMelo, these guys are too cool to really smile. Though the framing is good, it's a solid yet unspectacular selfie.

Gameday Blog: Sharks vs. Golden Knights 3/22

Your source for news for San Jose Sharks gameday

by Ann Frazier & Casey Krygier /

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every gameday. This blog will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets, so be sure to check back as the day goes on.

It's a major Pacific Division matchup tonight as the Sharks host the Vegas Golden Knights in a nationally televised game.

Tonight's game has huge implications for the playoff race as the NHL regular season is wrapping up in the next few weeks. The Golden Knights - long thought to have won the Pacific - are within striking distance of the Sharks, only 8 points ahead with 9 games left - and two games between the two. The Sharks can pull within 6 points tonight, while increasing their lead on the Los Angeles Kings to 6 points to try to assure home ice in the first round of the playoffs.

The Sharks are the hottest they've been this season, currently on a 5 game winning streak and having won 8 of their last 10. Even more encouraging is that the scoring has been done by committee - there's no greater example than last night's game, where the six goals were scored by six different players. 

Speaking of last night's game, it was as strong of a game as any by the Sharks. After briefly being tied 1-1, the Sharks rattled off five straight goals in the first and second periods to gain a stranglehold on the game. Martin Jones continued his strong play, and the penalty kill was perfect after an out-of-character game in Vancouver.
