San Jose Sharks Host the Anaheim Ducks
Tonight, the San Jose Sharks (3-3-0) will take on the Anaheim Ducks (2-3-1) in the team’s second home game of the year on national television. The Sharks are coming off an Eastern Conference road trip that saw them go 2-3 and the Ducks have won their last two contests.
They will be mixing up their lines tonight, and most notably, Mikkel Boedker has been moved up to the top line. Head coach Peter DeBoer is hoping that being an a line with the Joe’s will spark his season, as the left winger has just one point and four shots in six games.
