On Friday, the Sharks enjoyed an upbeat practice, with an emphasis on fun. Friday night, the Hawks were in Anaheim facing the Ducks. Hawks pounded the Ducks 4-1, Kane notched two goals; Duncan Keith became the fifth Chicago Blackhawk defenseman to score 400 points.
Sharks are hoping that their rest will allow them the upper hand when the teams meet in a reversal of situation earlier this season when Sharks were the tired team heading into Chicago.
Appears it will be the Antti show in nets: Niemi vs Rannta.
More after morning skate.
