Tonight the San Jose Sharks will take on the Vancouver Canucks for the fourth time this season. While the Sharks performed well in the first two contests, they were badly outworked and out-hustled when the squads met last Thursday at the Shark Tank. While the boys in teal managed to shake off their recent losing streaking by downing the Calgary Flames on Tuesday, this team still has a lot to work on if it hopes to down this Vancouver squad.

The Canucks have hit a bit of a rough patch as of late, however. They’ve lost their last two games since beating the Sharks week ago, and are also looking to get back on track tonight.

This is another important matchup with a Pacific Division foe for San Jose. They haven’t been faring well against inter-divisional opponents, and that’s forced them down to third place behind the Anaheim Ducks and Phoenix Coyotes. A loss to the ‘Nucks tonight would give San Jose a single point lead over the team, while a win could give them a bit of breathing room.
