The San Jose Sharks visit the Tampa Bay Lightning for Saturday NHL action.

The surging San Jose Sharks were flat in a 6-3 loss at Arizona on Wednesday which ended a seven game winning streak. Kevin Labanc, Evander Kane Logan Couture provided the offense for San Jose.

The balanced Arizona offense saw scoring off the sticks of Lawson Crouse, Richard Panik, Christian Fischer, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Alex Galchenyuk and Josh Archibald. Clayton Keller added two helpers and Darcy Kuemper gave up three goals on 29 shots to pick up the win for the Coyotes.

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition.

Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
