San Jose Sharks

San Jose Sharks schedule released – a look at the notable home games

The San Jose Sharks have released their 2012-2013 schedule to the general public. The team will open the regular season versus the Ducks on Friday, October 12th in Anaheim before returning home to San Jose the following Monday to face the New York Rangers.

Some notable home games for Sharks fans to be aware of include:

November 1st and January 3rd vs. the St. Louis Blues – If you’re still mad about the Sharks’ first round exit and enjoy the hockey equivalent of a pitchers’ duel, grab your tickets for this one now.

November 20th and February 7th vs. the Chicago Blackhawks – Every team that knocks the Sharks out of Cup contention instantly becomes a rival for me, and I’m still smarting from the 2010 Western Conference Finals.

November 24th and February 9th vs. the Anaheim Ducks – Disney’s favorite hockey team comes marching into San Jose.  Never a shortage of bad blood in these series.

December 13th and April 1st vs. the Vancouver Canucks – Roberto Luongo and the Sedin twins cross the border to visit what is sure to be a packed HP Pavilion.  The Sharks will try to turn the tides of power in a rivalry that has been all Vancouver for several years now.

December 15th and March 9th vs. the Dallas Stars – Sharks fans love to hate Steve Ott and the Stars.  These games are never lacking in fireworks (or penalty minutes).

December 20th and March 2nd vs. the Los Angeles Kings – the 2012 Stanley Cup Champions come to the tank to defend their crown.

January 9th and February 28th vs. the Detroit Red Wings – This is the Sharks biggest and highest profile rivalry.  Red Wings fans always show up for these games, which makes them all the more fun (and obnoxious).

January 5th vs. the Philadelphia Flyers and January 31st vs. the Boston Bruins – the two most notable interconference match ups, this will be Sharks fans’ only chance to see the big boys from the Eastern Seaboard live and in person.

If by “several years”, you mean “the last two years” you would be correct, but the Sharks kind of owned Vancouver before that.

it feels like just yesterday we were kicking the snot out of them 5-0 sad

I was thinking the same thing. Sorry, Ruthless, between my comment in the last post and this one, I feel like I’m starting to pile on.

Kyle McLorg

Comon fellas, gimme a break!

No, actually, when I wrote this, I considered googling what the record had been but it seriously seemed like the Sharks had been getting owned by them forever, so I just went with several years. Poor word choice, but you’re right, 2008-2010 was Sharks ownage.

But yeah, Rich, quit pilin on

Haha. Ok. When you write a post about how Neimi is the key to taking the Sharks to the finals, I promise to give you a pass.

Kyle McLorg

Hey now – I’m ill-informed, not delusional

Kyle McLorg

I stand corrected – you’re absolutely right. I guess their 3-10-0 record in the last two years just feels like several years when I look back on it.


It feels like several years to me too… sigh.


“Roberto Luongo and the Sedin twins cross the border to visit what is sure to be a packed HP Pavilion…”

The Sedin twins? Yes. Luongo? Highly doubtful. He’s already made it clear he’s played his last game in a Nucks sweater. You may want to update that to read Cory Schneider.

Missed that news when writing this – Thanks for the heads up
