On Friday, the Sharks took the lead, but could only get one past the Sabres’ Johnson.  Meanwhile, Jones let two in (plus an empty netter).  Close game.  DeBoer was non-commital over the starting goalie in the next two games before Friday’s game.

The Canucks are looking for their first three-game winning streak this season, when they host the Sharks on Sunday evening.  Canucks won Thursday against the visiting Senators.

On Saturday, the Sharks traded backup Stalock (and Ben Smith, pick) to Toronto for James Reimer and prospect Jeremy Morin.  Morin is reporting to the Barracuda, but it’ll be a couple of days for Reimer’s work visa to be arranged for him to join the team, so Aaron Dell has been recalled from AHL Barracuda. DW says “never say never” that he’s done trading (prior to TDL), but he has addressed the three areas they needed help in the most.

The Canucks’ may be distracted by upcoming TDL:  Hamhuis is rumored to be on the move.

Guessing Jones will get the start vs Miller.
