Gameday Blog: Sharks at Penguins 2/21
Your source for news for San Jose Sharks gamedayby Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com
Welcome to the Gameday Blog, which will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets.
Tonight the Sharks head out on the road for their final trip to the Eastern Conference in the regular season, facing off against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Sharks are coming off a somewhat disappointing 6-5 overtime loss to the Boston Bruins Monday at SAP Center. The Sharks fell to a 3-0 deficit in the first period, before storming back and taking the lead in the third, before allowing a higher-sticked-than-usual goal and then falling in overtime. Joe Thornton registered his fifth career hat trick in the game, while Joe Pavelski and Logan Couture also scored for the Sharks.
Previously, the Sharks and Penguins met in San Jose on January 15, with the Sharks emerging with a 5-2 win. That game also featured a hat trick, with Tomas Hertl scoring three. Evander Kane and Brenden Dillon both registered multi-point games as well.
The Sharks look to get back into the win column tonight as the stretch drive to the end of the season approaches. No word yet on whether yesterday's waiver acquisition - and familiar face - Micheal Haley will join the team for tonight's game.
Sharks fans can tune into tonight's game on NBCSCA. In addition, Sharks fans can listen on 98.5 KFOX or the Sharks radio network, or tune in on the Sharks + SAP Center app.
