Sharks Host Stars in Afternoon Delight Matchup

Third time is the charm, right? The San Jose Sharks will try once again to clinch a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a victory Saturday afternoon against the Dallas Stars. After a mental breakdown in a 6-3 drubbing by Edmonton, the hope here is that San Jose will play to their opponent’s level and bring their A-game to the second best team in the league.

Joonas Donskoi looks to be ok after missing the third period Thursday night. Martin Jones looks to be the starting netminder in this matchup against the guy who he replaced in Antti Niemi for Dallas. Here’s the lineup for Team Teal:

Hertl – Thornton – Pavelski
Karlsson – Couture – Donskoi
Marleau – Tierney – Ward
Zubrus – Spaling – Wingels

Martin – Burns
DeMelo – Braun
Dillon – Polak


For Dallas, they have been up and down lately. They are tied with St. Louis for first in the Central, but are missing their prolific scorer, Tyler Seguin due to a slightly torn achilles. This team can score anywhere and often. Shut down their offense and get a few past Niemi, and we should be talking about a playoff clinch on Pucknology After Dark.
