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.

The San Jose Sharks are coming off a two-game win streak and three days rest since beating the Kings 2-1 in Los Angeles. Though the Sharks trailed most of the game, they came out on top with two third-period goals scored by Melker Karlsson and Joel Ward and outshot the Kings 29-19 in the final two frames.

Tonight the Sharks take on the Florida Panthers at SAP Center in their first of two meetings this season. The Sharks are 13-9-7-3 all-time and 1-1-1 last season against the Cats. The matchup, however, may be a little different tonight being that there are more familiar faces on the opposing team. 

Florida's Head Coch, Bob Boughner served as the Sharks Assistant Coach from 2015-17. Panthers forward Micheal Haley played on the Worcester Sharks, San Jose Barracuda and San Jose Sharks from 2014-17. 

This game marks the first of the Sharks three-game homestand facing the Bruins and Ducks in the coming week.

 After an ultra-brief road trip followed by three days off, the Sharks look to return to action with a very similar lineup to Sunday's game - albeit with Martin Jones in net.

While Coach Peter DeBoer shuffled the lines on Sunday, notably breaking up the Joes for the first time this season, the line rushes from morning skate seemed to have reunite the two.
