San Jose Sharks Finish Road Trip Against New Jersey in Morning Back-to-Back

San Jose Sharks Look to End Poor Road Trip on High Note Against the Devils

The East Coast road trip has not been kind to the San Jose Sharks thus far, which dropped a season-high four games, most recently yesterday against the Philadelphia Flyers in 2-1 overtime loss. The Sharks will be looking to snap their current skid against a struggling New Jersey Devils team that has had an up-and-down season, though they have won 3 of their last 5 games.

The Sharks could be without Logan Couture again, who is dealing with an upper body injury. Joonas Donskoi is out with an upper body, and Dylan DeMelo is out with a broken wrist.

Beau Bennett for the Devils is out with a lower body. Jonathon Merrill and Kyle Quincey are out with upper body injuries.
