It seems like these two teams have met every other night to start this season but as we saw in their most recent meeting the Sharks aren't playing as well as they were to start the season. They snapped out of their funk a little bit on Tuesday night but it wasn't easy as the Calgary Flames gave them all they could handle. San Jose blew a 2-0 lead in the third period but found a way to win on a Brad Stuart goal in overtime. Logan Couture and Patrick Marleau scored first period goals before the two sides went silent until Calgary's two tallies in the third. Now they've got to take a step up in competition against a Canucks club they're very familiar with that got the best of them last time out. The Canucks got the best of the Sharks a week ago but since then have lost two straight. They've had a couple of days to practice and get ready here again and I like their chances on home ice in this one.
