San Jose Sharks Look to Finish Road Trip on Positive Note in Vancouver

San Jose Sharks Finish Final Road Trip in Vancouver

While the San Jose Sharks have already clinched a playoff spot when the Edmonton Oilers defeated the Los Angeles Kings a few games earlier, things have not been going great for the team in teal, as they’ve now dropped 8 of their last 9 games, their worst stretch of the season. The month of March had not been kind to them, as they went 6-11-0.

The Vancouver Canucks are obviously a rebuilding team missing the playoffs for a sixth straight year. They’ve now lost three in a row, including a shutout loss against the Kings. They look to avoid a four-game skid against the Sharks.

 Logan Couture is still out dealing with the effects of a puck to the face. The Canucks are dealing with a host of injuries; Loui Eriksson (leg), Brendan Gaunce (upper body), Joseph Cramarossa (foot), Jayson Megna (upper body) and Jack Skille (ankle) are day-to-day. Derek Dorsett (back surgery), Erik Gudbranson (wrist) Anton Rodin (knee), Jacob Markstrom (lower body), and Markus Granlund (wrist) are out.
