Gameday Blog: Sharks at Blackhawks 12/16

Your source for news for San Jose Sharks gameday

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, which will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets.

Tonight the Sharks head back out on the road as they pay a visit to the Chicago Blackhawks. This is the first time this season these two teams have met. 

The Sharks last game was also against a Central Division opponent, when they hosted the Dallas Stars on Thursday night. Joe Thornton scored the game-winner (his fifth goal of the year), while Timo Meier scored twice - his second two-goal game in as many days, and his 17th and 18th goals of the season. 

The Sharks hope to continue their win streak tonight against a Blackhawks team that has struggled this season. The special teams battle looks to be important tonight; the Blackhawks have the 31st and 30th power play and penalty kill respectively, and it would be prudent for the Sharks to take advantage of that.

Sharks fans can tune into tonight's game on NBCSCA. In addition, Sharks fans can listen on 98.5 KFOX or the Sharks radio network, or tune in on the Sharks + SAP Center app.

Now in his third season with the Sharks, the forward has made a name for himself (shall we say #TimoTime) as he leads the team with 32 points, 18 goals and 14 assists, thus far this season.

At only 22 years old, Meier has learned the ropes of the NHL from the veteran leaders on the Sharks. Putting in work every day at the rink on the ice is just as important as the work put in off the ice. Now get In Focus with Sharks forward Timo Meier.

Gameday Blog: Sharks vs. Stars 12/13

Your source for news for San Jose Sharks gameday

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, which will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets.

Tonight the Sharks wrap up their quick two-game homestand as they host the Dallas Stars.

The Sharks last played on Monday, where they earned a satisfying 5-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils. Timo Meier scored twice, while Joe Pavelski, Tomas Hertl, and Radim Simek also added tallies. Simek's goal also marked his first career goal - the second first career goal scored by a Sharks player (a Czech Sharks player, for that matter) in as many games. 

Tonight's opponent is coming off a game against the Anaheim Ducks last night. This is the second game in a row the rested Sharks will be facing a tired team - a strong contrast to their span of almost four straight sets of back-to-backs. But still, it will be important for the Sharks to come out of the gates strong and take advantage of that potential fatigue. 

Sharks fans can tune into tonight's game on NBCSCA. In addition, Sharks fans can listen on 98.5 KFOX or the Sharks radio network, or tune in on the Sharks + SAP Center app.
