SAP Center: Looking Back

Over the Past 25 Years, SAP Center Calls Itself Home to a Variety of Memorable Events

by Mark Purdy / sjsharks.com

Bruce Tharaldson has seen it all. Right from the beginning. He has been in the SAP Center driver's seat since the building opened in 1993, as the man who operates the Zamboni for Sharks' games.

That's a lot of resurfaced ice. That's a lot of Zamboni miles.

But the real payoff has come when Tharaldson parks his machine behind Section 121. He walks out to the large tunnel behind the east goal. He stands there behind the glass. He watches the action. He may have the best view in the house.

Jumbo-Sized Heart

Not All of Thornton's Accomplishments are Reflected on the Scoresheet

by Ross McKeon / sjsharks.com

Joe Thornton has collected 1,065 regular-season assists over an illustrious 21-year NHL career. Only seven players have more helpers in league history. 

But the two biggest assists Thornton earned this season aren't even reflected in the future Hall-of-Famer stats. Putting his ego aside and focusing on what he can do to help the team as he always does, Jumbo Joe took young wingers Kevin Labanc and Marcus Sorensen under his wings and taught them to be everyday NHL pros and productive players in the best league in the world.

And he loved every minute of it.

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every playoff gameday. 

Tonight the Sharks take on the Blues in Game 4 of the Western Conference Final in St. Louis.

Karlsson became the fifth defenseman this season to register a multi-goal game in the postseason, the third by a Shark. Joe Thornton earned his first career playoff multi-goal game, the oldest such player in NHL history to register his first career multi-goal game. Logan Couture scored his 14th of the postseason, tying a Sharks record and Kevin Labanc earned his second multi-assist game this year. Joe Pavelski also recorded his 100th career postseason point.
