A furious three goal rally against Phoenix was ruined late Tuesday night, however, the Sharks did accomplish one goal on the evening. Their season long body of work, combined with Dallas falling to Vancouver, clinched the Pacific Division title.
It is the fourth division title in franchise history and the first time the Sharks have won back-to-back Pacific Division titles.
Now the Sharks will continue to hunt for the Western Conference and Presidents' Trophy for best record in the league.
San Jose currently trails Detroit by three points, but has two games in hand on their Western Conference rival.
The Sharks will return to HP Pavilion Thursday night for a 7:30 battle against Nashville. Tickets can be found at the HP Pavilion Ticket Office or at www.ticketmaster.com. The contest will be on CSN Bay Area, 98.5 KFOX and sjsharks.com.
PRACTICE CLOSE San Jose's practice on Wednesday will be closed to the public.
