The Sharks started off the week on a very high note. They had two games of a three game road trip to go before returning to San Jose for their next two games. The Sharks traveled to Chicago and beat the Blackhawks in a shootout by a score of 3-2. However, just two days later the Sharks finished out their road trip with a disappointing 3-2 loss to the lowly Nashville Predators.

The Sharks’ roller coaster of a week continued when they returned to Northern California opening their home stand with a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings, but followed that win up by getting shutout by the Boston Bruins 1-0. Overall the Sharks went 2-2-0 this week and grabbed four out of a possible eight points.
