San Jose Sharks Cap Dallas Series in Hopes to Snap Losing Streak
The San Jose Sharks continued their slide with a 3-2 loss against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night. They have four straight losses since the game against the St. Louis Blues at home. They are tied in the season series against the Dallas Stars, losing 1-0 on the first game of this four-game road trip. With a playoff spot pretty much guaranteed, it’s all about trying to re-generate more offense, getting guys going and just playing better hockey in general in front of your goalie.
For the Sharks, Melker Karlsson is doubtful with a lower body injury. For the Stars, Jason Spezza is day-to-day with back spasms. Mattias Janmark is out with a knee injury, and Antoine Roussel is out with a hand issue.
