Location: SAP Center: 525 W Santa Clara St, San Jose, CA 95113

The Sharks are 12-0-1 in their last thirteen games against the Canucks. Tonight wasn’t going to be much different. It didn’t take long for Erik Karlsson to end up on the score sheet after missing nine games due to lower body injury. Just over three minutes into the period, Karlsson made a one touch pass from low on the right boards to Timo Meier in front of the net and he wristed it in the net. Just a minute latter, Antoine Roussel got behind the Sharks defense and wristed a shot that rang off the top bar, into the net and tied the game at 1.
Just over eleven minutes into the second period, Logan Couture got the puck at the top of the slot, skated to the bottom of the left circle and wristed a shot on a tight angle, beating the goalie on the short side. The second period ended with San Jose leading 2-1.
Early in the third period, Brock Boeser skated the puck behind the Sharks’s goal, skated to the bottom of the left circle and shot over Jones’ right blocker to tie the game at 2. With seven minutes left in the period, Meier took a hard shot from inside of the right circle which the goalie stopped. However the reboud ended up on Joe Pavelski’s stick in the slot and he ripped a wrister straight in the net.
Final Score 3-2 Sharks
Tonight the Sharks led in face offs (60%-40%) and giveaways (10-7) while the Canucks led in shots (34-26), hits (20-17), blocked shots (21-17) and takeaways (14-11).
