San Jose Sharks Hope to Finally Snap Season Worst Losing Streak vs. Rangers

It has not been pretty for the San Jose Sharks for the last couple games. They have a six-game losing streak that spans from the last two games of their previous home stand and are winless in their last four games. The frustrated Sharks team will be hosting the New York Rangers, who dropped their previous game against the Anaheim Ducks. New York leads the season series 1-0. A Sharks win in either regulation or overtime, or a Los Angeles Kings loss in any fashion, will clinch San Jose a playoff spot in the 2017 postseason.

Logan Couture is out with a facial injury for the Sharks. Micheal Haley is currently serving his one-game suspension. The Rangers have zero players injured. Zilch. Zip. Nada.
