The San Jose Sharks play the third game of their East Coast road trip against the New York Rangers tonight at Madison Square Garden. The team is coming off a 5-3 loss to the New York Islanders on Saturday.

Despite the loss, forward Logan Couture had a dominant performance at Barclays Center scoring his second career hat trick. Two of his goals came at even strength while his other came on the power play, the exact same as his other career hat trick which occurred on March 29, 2016 in Vancouver. Additionally, Joe Thornton picked up a pair of assists in the defeat as Aaron Dell started in net for Team Teal. Logan Couture is one assist away from 200 career NHL assists. 

After a few days rest, Martin Jones is expected back in net for the Sharks. He is 2-2-0 in his career vs. the Rangers. The San Jose Sharks are 10-22-3-2 all-time vs. the Rangers and 4-11-1-1 at Madison Square Garden.

So far so good on the Sharks East Coast road trip. Last night the team defeated the New Jersey Devils in a 3-0 shutout. Now they head across the Hudson River and face the New York Islanders at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

Last matchup between the Sharks and Islanders didn't go quite as planned for Team Teal as they dropped the game 3-1 at SAP Center. The recent winning momentum of the Sharks though could propel them to even the season series against the Isles. The Sharks are 3-1-0 in their last four games, beating the Sabres, Canadiens, and Devils. 

Goaltender Aaron Dell is likely to make the start against the Islanders as the team heads into their second game of a back-to-back. Dell made his NHL debut last year in Brooklyn where he also registered his first NHL win. The offensive production of the team continues to rise as both Melker Karlsson and Joonas Donskoi scored their first goals of the season last night against the Devils.

As more of the team heats up, the Sharks look to continue their successful road trip tonight.

The Sharks are on the road for the first time this season, kicking off their 41 game road schedule with a trip to the East Coast. The team will be in the New York Metropolitan area this weekend, playing all three of the metro-area teams over the span of four days. And first up are the not-quite New York New Jersey Devils.

There are a few ties to the Devils; head coach Peter DeBoer was formerly their head coach, and current Devils defenseman Mirco Mueller was traded there from the Sharks over the summer. After drafting Nico Hischier first overall this past summer, the Devils are currently first in the Metropolitan Division with 12 points in 7 games.

After a slow start for the Sharks, the team has really kicked it into gear over the past three games, going 2-1-0 against the Sabres, Islanders, and Canadiens - and the only loss was one where the Sharks put up 41 shots and gave up only 23. Tuesday's game against the Canadiens saw a lot of players get off the schnide, particularly with Joe Pavelski potting his first goal of the season as well as adding a beauty of a kick assist. 

The Sharks will look to continue their high level of play tonight and hopefully start off this road trip on a high note.

Shark Life: Riding in Style

by Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

The San Jose Sharks embarked on their first road trip of the season heading to the East Coast. The first stop on the five game, ten day trip was New Jersey. After practice on Thursday at the Prudential Center in Newark New Jersey, Chris Tierney, Brenden Dillon and Barclay Goodrow crossed the Hudson River and took to the streets of New York City.

A sunny and 70-degree day seemed like the perfect opportunity to take in the sights of Central Park so that's what they did, but in style of course! The guys trotted through the park in a horse-drawn carriage.

Tonight marks the first time Sharks fans will get to hear O Canada this season - and some of it will be in French - as the Montreal Canadiens comes to visit as the final game of the five-game homestand.

The Canadiens are similar to the Sharks in that they are looking for their second win on the season, having opened up 1-3-1. 

Saturday night's game saw the Sharks bring the same amount of intensity as was seen during Thursday night's victory over the Sabres, but without any of the puck luck. Since the 2005-06 season, the Sharks have lost 56 games in which they had 40 or more shots against an opponent, good for 5th in the NHL. Tonight the Sharks will look to have more of those shots go into the net.

Initial reports out of practice has no changes to the lineup, with injured defenseman Paul Martin unlikely to travel with the team on the upcoming road trip. Stay tuned for morning skate for further confirmation of the lineup, however.

Inside the Cage: Earned Promotions

Young defensemen have earned their chance at NHL playing time

by Ross McKeon @rossmckeon / sjsharks.com

With defensemen Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Brent Burns, Justin Braun, Paul Martin and Brenden Dillon, the Sharks have the luxury of a deep blue line and revel in the security they don't need to rush young players into the lineup before their time.

That's what makes the integration of Joakim Ryan and Tim Heed on the back end more of a natural progression. There's no forced move because of salary-cap restrictions. There's nothing driving their promotion other than they've developed to the point they deserve a chance to help the team win.

And a chance is what they've been given.

"You just want to see them get in there and play the way they did during exhibition games, and do their thing," Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said. "Some guys are getting opportunities here, and you want them to make the most of it."
