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 they day goes on.

After a four day break, the Sharks are back in action at the Tank to take on the Buffalo Sabres for their third game of the season. The Sharks are still looking to get in the win column, but with only two games played the sample size remains rather small.

Yesterday's practice hinted at some changes to the lineup; Paul Martin was termed day-to-day with a lower body injury, leaving the door open for one of the young Sharks defensemen to step up and make an impact at the NHL level.
