The San Jose Sharks dropped an important game to the Phoenix Coyotes last night, but still managed to steal a point by pushing the contest into overtime. The boys in teal are now (incredibly) tied for the Atlantic Division lead with the Anaheim Ducks, and only five points separate them from the fifth-place Los Angeles Kings.
While some division leaders have managed to put some distance between themselves and the pack, that hasn’t been the case for the Sharks in the Atlantic. Despite only one regulation loss, San Jose still can’t seem to pull away from the Ducks, Coyotes, Vancouver Canucks or Kings.
October is in the books now, and the Sharks will look to continue their strong play in November. Avoiding any kind of setback like they faced last season will be imperative moving forward. With that in mind, here’s a look at San Jose’s schedule for the upcoming week.
