Vancouver is no stranger to the postseason, but neither are the San Jose Sharks. Both teams are becoming mainstays in the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs so it’s fitting that they meet in the opening round. Vancouver has made a name for themselves off of the elite play their top two lines produce, and the Sedin twins are the ones leading the charge.
But beyond those top two lines, the talent and skill thins and that’s where the Sharks are looking to take advantage. Antti Niemi is one of the most consistent netminders in the Western Conference, and the Sharks are going to lean on him to stop the Canucks top two lines and swat away the other two lines.
What time do the Canucks and Sharks drop the puck? We’ve got all of the information you will need to know to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the action.
