Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every playoff gameday.
Tonight the San Jose Sharks host the Vegas Golden Knights in a do-or-die Game 5 at SAP Center.
The Sharks have dropped three straight games in Round One to the Golden Knights, trailing the series 3-1, most recently being shutout by Fleury in Game 4, 5-0. The Sharks will fight for their postseason life tonight at the Tank and need the energy from Sharks Territory to propel them back to Vegas for Game 6.
Joe Thornton is expected back in the lineup after being suspended from Game 4. In addition, Marc-Edouard Vlasic is expected to make his return after missing Games 3 and 4 with an injury.
Not only is Team Teal 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.
