Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Today marks the beginning of the new Lunar New Year, which means it's time for family and red envelopes as everyone celebrates the transition from the Year of the Rooster to the Year of the Dog. 

The Sharks will be fully celebrating Lunar New Year on Sunday, but there's no reason not to kick it off today. As it is the year of the dog, sjsharks.com felt that it'd be the perfect time to celebrate some of the best dogs we've seen over the past year.

It's another home game for the Sharks tonight as they host the Vancouver Canucks in yet another divisional matchup. Tonight also marks Hockey Is For Everyone Night presented by Pizza Factory, which celebrates inclusion in the sport.

The Sharks are coming off a mildly disappointing 2-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes. Mikkel Boedker provided the only goal of the game, though the team managed to put up 41 shots on goal in the effort. The biggest news of the game, however, was the injury to Tomas Hertl, who left after being run into the boards in the first period.

Though initially feared to be somewhat serious, Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer only termed Hertl as "doubtful" for tonight at yesterday's practice. "I don't think at this point it's as serious as it possibly could have been," he said to the media.

Other news was Brent Burns's temporary move to forward for a few shifts as the Sharks looked for some offense in the third period. DeBoer reaffirmed that the Norris-winner will remain a defenseman, but may take shifts up front depending on need due to the injury situation.

The Sharks and Canucks have already met three times this season, with the Sharks prevailing two of the three for a 2-0-1 record. Both games played at SAP Center thus far have seen the Sharks score five goals; the lone blemish on the Sharks' record was a 4-3 overtime loss in Vancouver.

Shark Life: Monday Night Raw

Brent Burns attends WWE Raw at SAP Center

by Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

Sometimes you can't help the temptation of going to your workplace on your night off, especially when WWE is in town. That was the case for Brent Burns on Monday night when he and his family attended WWE's Monday Night Raw at SAP Center. 

Burns' attendance to the wrestling match may not have been a huge surprise after his Twitter banter with WWE's Bludgeon Brothers.

Tweet from @LukeHarperWWE: Lucky that Raw is heading to San Jose next week and not the BLUDGEON brand. Rowan told me he doesn't like the look of these 2. Hey @sanjosesharks tell the boys to keep their heads up. pic.twitter.com/vPQ2m2Phlm
