Elimination from playoff contention. End of a 10 year run in the playoffs (that so many other teams would “love to have such a problem”). And another loss at home.

A loss for either team, and it’s the final elimination from the playoffs for the season.

Sharks have the pride of playing in front of their fans for the last time this season on Fan Appreciation night.  (Which might be on the empty side as the Giants season opener starts 30 minutes before the puck drops.) Gift to fans: Patrick Marleau bobblehead.  Sharks Foundation will be auctioning off game worn jerseys (second half of the team) and selling Easter pucks.

Sharks have recalled (Worcester captain) Bryan Lerg. And with Hertl out with illness, he’s expected to make his NHL debut at age 29.

Sharks host Coyotes in opener of back-to-back, home-and-home games on Friday. They close the series on Saturday in Arizona.

Vlasic has been ruled out for the weekend games. Hannan is questionable for Friday. (So, there may be a recall from AHL for D; or John Scott may take a place on the blue line. Update: Stollery recalled.)  Niemi may be in nets, with Stalock’s cold getting worse.

150401 – postgame Avalanche @ Sharks

Pregame news/links

Sharks managed goal in second (after scoreless, pretty boring first period), and exploded for four in third (including two empty netters with goalie pulled with about five minutes to go).

And the Sharks officially announce their AHL franchise as the San Jose Barracuda.

Sharks return from their long road trip to a two-game home stand. (Then road, home, 2 for the road to finish out the regular season.)

Niemi is recovering from an apparent cold, so Stalock may get the start.  Tarasov has been returned to Worcester.  Brown is close to returning. Mueller out for the season with a thumb injury (unclear if he might be healed for World Championships). Vlasic is day-to-day with lower body injury (but out for Wednesday).

Reto Berra announced as starter for Avalanche.
