Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every gameday.
Keep. It. Going.
That's the thought running through every Sharks fan's head today, after the San Jose Sharks took Game 1 over the Vegas Golden Knights in an entertaining 5-2 win. Joe Pavelski, Brent Burns, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Evander Kane, and Tomas Hertl all scored for the Sharks in the victory.
One of the biggest talking points from Wednesday's game was Joe Pavelski's playoff-opening goal that saw him deflect a puck - with his face. He left for the remainder of the period, but came back out early in the second. That's playoffs.
The Sharks will try to hold off what is sure to be a strong response from the Golden Knights tonight, and hold on to that home ice advantage the team worked hard for through the 82 games of the regular season.
Not only is the team in #PlayoffMode, but the entire organization and City of San Jose have also kicked it up a notch. If you aren't attending tonight's game, there are still plenty of ways for you to join in on the playoff festivities.
Start your night at San Pedro Square Market Bar and march to the Tank along with S.J. Sharkie and the Sharks drum corp at 5:30. The playoff march will drop you off in front of SAP Center for the free street rally full of entertainment, food, and beverage. Fans around the Bay Area can also catch the game at one of the bars part of the Sharks bar network.
For fans attending the game, come early and enjoy the new food and beverage options throughout the arena. Get to your seat for warmups and try to snag a puck dished out by Team Teal.
