Welcome to the Gameday Blog, which will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets.
Tonight the Sharks continue their three-game homestand against Pacific Division rival Vancouver Canucks at 7PM at SAP Center. It is also one of the nights where the Sharks celebrate #BayAreaUnite, for Warriors Night presented by Zoom.
The Sharks are coming off a one-game respite from the Canadian national anthem in which they hosted the Washington Capitals. Unlike the previous game between the Sharks and Capitals that saw the Sharks come away with a 7-6 OT win, the Capitals got the better of the Sharks with a 5-1 victory that the Sharks would rather forget. Kevin Labanc scored the lone goal in the game for the Sharks, his fifth goal in three games.
This is the third meeting of the season between the Canucks and Sharks. The previous game between the two - which happened all the way back on Monday - saw the Sharks with a 7-2 victory. Evander Kane, Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture, Tomas Hertl, Melker Karlsson, and Brent Burns all had multi-point games in that victory, while Joe Thornton hit another one of his many milestones.
The goal for the Sharks tonight is to get back in the win column and separate themselves from the Calgary Flames - who they are currently tied with for first in the Pacific Division.
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.
