San Jose Sharks Need Vital Win At Home Vs. Coyotes


On Thursday night, the San Jose Sharks lost to the Florida Panthers 3-2 in a shootout. In the game, they didn’t play that well. They were lucky to get a point in the standings. Tonight, they play against the Arizona Coyotes. This is a big stretch of games because all the opponents are in their division, and they should need to start winning at home. It’s the first meeting the Coyotes and Sharks are playing this year.

Players to watch for: I’ll go with the new guy. Brenden Dillon. Try to look for his defense and how physical he is. I think you will all be happy to see a physical defensemen on the team finally. In addition, this is the time to see how he may improve the defense overall.

My take: The Sharks need to start winning tonight. They can not keep having stagnant starts to the games. If they keep losing, the real rebuild will take place and I don’t think the Sharks fanbase would like that at all. This is a veteran team. Time for you to show up or get traded.
