Stolarz gets the nod as struggling San Jose comes to town.

San Jose are winners of one in their last ten. They’ll look to shake the funk with a visit to Edmonton. Can Anthony Stolarz hold the fort?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • In what will likely be his first and only scheduled start, Anthony Stolarz takes the net. Here’s hoping he turns aside 46 shots for a shutout, warms up to the Oilers and signs a one year deal for 850K.
  • We’re running out of time for Tobias Rieder to score a goal. He’s got to do it either tonight (n a line with Colby Cave and Alex Chiasson) or Saturday versus Calgary. Let’s go.
  • The Sharks have allowed an average of 4.3 goals per game over their last ten. That’s a tonne of goals! Let’s go, get 97 the puck and let’s make it a four point night already.
