Sharks Team Statistics

Should be a good match-up tonight, as the Hawks take on a tough Sharks team on the road, looking to get their fifth win in a row, following an eight game losing streak. This team seems to be hitting their stride again, and lately they have battled hard and picked up some much needed points in the standings. Tonight, they will need to continue their good play because getting a win in San Jose is not going to be an easy task. Hopefully, Patrick Lalime has another good showing in goal, and the power play needs to get going in order to boost this team offensively.
