Back from Christmas break, it was a trip to the desert that greeted the Sharks. Making things a bit tougher was a day-of flight out to face a tough division opponent in an effort to get the two points.



Schedule makers from three professional sports leagues lined up a weekend of Bay Area sports against Arizona.
