Last home game of the regular season.  Sharks cannot have a winning home record.  Hoping for good momentum heading into playoffs.

Coyotes are out of the playoffs, but encouraged by what the future may hold.

The Sharks came together in Vlasic’s absence, to contain the Rangers (only former Shark Dan Boyle managed to get a puck past Jones — on the PP). And chased Lundqvist out of the net.  Final score: 4-1 Sharks.  Marleau skated in his 1,400th game — the youngest player to ever do so; the 9th to do so with a single franchise, the 30th in NHL history.  And with more points, Thornton climbs the all-time scoring list.  Wingels was inserted into the lineup for Nieto (out 3-4 weeks with a broken knuckle).  DeMelo was recalled and in as well.  Donskoi made an AWESOME no look pass to Ward who started the scoring against the Rangers.

After winning the game over the Sharks Thursday on a late goal from Doan, the Coyotes were shut out by the Lightning behind Domingue.  Smith starting in nets for Arizona on Sunday.

Sunday, the lineup doesn’t change for the Sharks, except that Reimer will be in nets.

Sharks overcame a three goal deficit, scoring 4 straight, but let the Flames score late to tie it up.  Overtime didn’t decide it.  Sharks scored one in four rounds of shootout; Flames got two.  Ramo was injured late in the third; Hiller came in and only let in the single shootout goal, including a full two-minute 5-on-3 Sharks PP. Stalock got the loss. Martin received an elbow to the head and left the game. Dillon didn’t play due to upper body injury, and is not expected in the lineup Saturday.

Coyotes hosted the Flames Friday night, winning 4-1. Domingue made 26 saves in win.

Sharks stayed off the ice Friday.  Guessing that Jones will start on Saturday. Dillon likely out. Sharks will honor Barracuda head coach Roy Sommer for his AHL record setting win before the game.

Sharks had a couple of mental errors, were burned by a (bad) goal review, and lost in the shootout to the Senators. Win streak ended.

After a day off the ice, and an evening celebrating the team’s 25 years, it’s back to business and heading off to the desert for the first meeting of the season between the Sharks and the Coyotes, with the dads (or brothers).  Ben Smith was put on waivers Wednesday and with either report to his new team, or the AHL Barracuda; that move was made so that Zubrus could be activated from the IR for the game.  (Torres is still on conditioning stint in the AHL, but had a set back after playing back-to-back games on the road over the weekend.)

The Coyotes are coming off a 1-2 loss to the Sabres on Monday, their third straight loss. This puts them in a three-way tie for 2nd in the division with the Sharks and Canucks. But they’ll be celebrating tonight: captain Shane Doan’s 380th goal, which gives him the franchise title.

Jones likely to start for the Sharks.

Update: Smith clears waivers.

Penultimate preseason game.  DeBoer has announced that Jones will start this game and Stalock against the Ducks.  Sharks have recalled 9 players from AHL (for the weekend?). Melker Karlsson is skating, but won’t be traveling with the team to this weekend’s preseason games (perhaps he’ll start the season on the IR?).

Looks like Smith will make his preseason debut for the Coyotes.

Jones was perfect in regulation.  Pavelski scored two, and Hertl notched the other.

But in the mandatory OT, Jones gave one up.  Still pretty good preseason for Jones.

Sharks host the Coyotes on Friday.  This is the first home preseason game.

On Thursday, DeBoer indicated that Stalock is scheduled to start, playing the full game. Thornton and Pavelski haven’t yet played in preseason games, so might be in the line up. Karlsson is recovering from a minor injury, and it is not planned he’ll participate in either game this weekend. Torres is skating, but no news on his insertion into a preseason lineup.

Meanwhile, in the desert, the Coyotes had an intrasquad game for their fans on Thursday.  They’ll fly to San Jose Friday morning for the game.

Line ups for tonight can be seen here.

Looks like Donskoi will be skating with Pavelski and Thornton tonight; Torres in.  No John Scott for Arizona.

Postgame thoughts: While Torres started with the Joes, he ended up on the 4th line most of the night. He did get in a big, thundering hit early in the game, but postgame indicated that he’s still getting into “game shape”.

Donskoi was a giveaway-machine in the early part of the game, but by the end showed his explosive speed, was keeping more control of the puck, forechecking,  more successful board battles, and was rewarded with a goal and an assist. Named 2nd star of the game.  Definitely giving the coaching staff more to look at when considering the opening night roster.

DeMelo also impressed.  Offensively, notched a goal and an assist.  Displayed good positional play. Named 1st star of the game.  Definitely improved his chances to make his NHL debut with the season opening roster.

Goldobin continued to impress, even not being on the top line.  The “80’s trio” of Tennyson, Goldobin and Nieto had a nice shift during the mandated 3×3 OT.

Meier, in an unflashy way, is  continuing to show good play as an 18-year old potential NHL rookie.  He definitely has the size to play in the NHL. It may just be a question of where he’d fit in the lineup and would he get better minutes to improve playing in CHL?

The Sharks did surrender their first PPG of the preseason (first in regulation, only the second of preseason).  PK is much improved from last year.  And two more PPGs scored.

Very good to see such an improvement on the defensive side, which was horrendous at times last season.
