San Jose Sharks Hoping to Rebound Against Dallas

San Jose Sharks Host the Dallas Stars

The San Jose Sharks look to bounce back from a losing effort against the Nashville Predators in a 3-1 loss yesterday. They face the Dallas Stars for the first time this season, who have been having a less than stellar season after making the playoffs last year.

While San Jose currently isn’t a lock for first place, they’re definitely in position for a playoff spot. It’s been a different story for the Stars, as they sit in 6th place in the Central division and are 11 points out of the second Wild Card spot in the West.

David Schlemko and Melker Karlsson are out with lower body injuries for the Sharks.

The Stars’ Antoine Roussel is day-to-day with a hand issue.
