140923 – Sharks-Canucks split games preseason/postgame

In the preseason split squad games against the Canucks, each team won one.

In Vancouver, Stalock had 15 saves, but Sharks lost 4-2.  Couture did not skate 3rd period, stayed out for precautionary reasons.

But in Stockton, the Sharks won 5-2, with Thornton notching two goals.  Goldobin had a pretty one as well, named first star. Pavelski and Goodrow had the other two Shark goals.  Former Shark prospect Bonino scored one for the other guys.

140923 Preseason Sharks @ Canucks / Canucks @ Sharks (Stockton) — pregame news/links

And so we will get a first glance into how the Sharks will play against the rest of the league with split squad games against the Vancouver Canucks.

Sharks will be making big cuts after the Tuesday split squad games, so it may be the last chance for junior players, rookies and some vets, to make a good impression to stick around for the rest of camp (and perhaps the NHL season opener).

Vancouver is coming off of a very disappointing season, not even making the playoffs.  First year coach Tortorella didn’t make it to a second year, replaced by Willie Desjardins who coached the AHL Texas Stars to win the AHL Calder Cup last season. Vancouver had their early training camp in Whistler, so this will be the first opportunity local Vancouver fans will have to see their team.

Check out the links below for how the teams will split their squads between the two venues for the games.

Sharks will have neither radio nor TV coverage.  Game in Vancouver joined in progress on NHL Network US.  (Unclear if there is any Vancouver radio coverage)

 

Initially posted circa 9/22 11:40pm.  Will be updated through day as news breaks.

(I apologize for any missing/bad links — and blame the felines of the house)
