Gagner scored on a breakaway with 26 seconds left, beating Martin Jones with a quick deke and a backhand over his blocker to give the Vancouver Canucks a 4-3 win against the San Jose Sharks on Friday.

Gameday Blog: Sharks at Canucks 12/15

Your source for news for San Jose Sharks gameday

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.

After a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames last night, the Sharks continue on their Western Canada road trip to take on the Vancouver Canucks. The Canucks, currently 5 points behind the Sharks for the final spot in the playoffs in the Western Conference, have been going through a rough patch recently, epitomized by their 7-1 loss to the Nashville Predators on Wednesday. Of course, that gives the home team extra incentive to win tonight, along with the extra rest.

Jones Donskoi earned the game-winner in his first game back from Injured Reserve, a goal that saw him take advantage of a loose puck behind the goaltender. That tenacity help break a 2-2 tie midway through the third period, and also preserved the Sharks undefeated record when entering the third period with a lead. Chris Tierney and Timo Meier also scored against the Flames, meaning the newly formed third line provided all three of the goals. 

Last night's game broke the streak of two power play goals per game, but it still saw the Sharks score a goal on the man advantage. The Sharks special teams are now firmly in the top half of the league, with the power play ranked 12th and the penalty kill ranked 2nd. The Sharks look to continue that trend tonight.

Gameday Blog: Sharks at Flames 12/14

by Ann Frazier & Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

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.

The Sharks are coming off a three day break after wrapping up a three game homestead that saw the team in teal earn 5 out of a possible 6 points. Besides a dominating 5-0 win over the Ottawa Senators, the Sharks also had a pair of 3-0 comebacks that saw both games go to overtime. While the Sharks won the game against the Hurricanes, they did fall to the Minnesota Wild, the lone blemish on the homestand.

Tonight's opponent - the Calgary Flames - are also coming off a non-regulation loss to the Minnesota Wild, a 2-1 shootout loss. The Flames are currently tied with the Sharks in terms of standings points, but have two more losses.

Something encouraging with the Sharks recently is the team's improved play on special teams. Their penalty kill has been one of their strengths all season - it ranks second in the NHL in effectiveness and has scored the most shorthanded goals - but the power play has also been better. The team has scored two power play goals in each of the past three games, which has improved the power play to 19.6% - good for 13th in the NHL.
