The Sharks trimmed their training camp roster by cutting three players Monday, including Benn Ferriero, who netted the Game 1 winner in OT in last year's Conference Semifinal.
The Coyotes beat Thomas Greiss three times in the second period and handed the Sharks their first preseason loss before the teams meet again in the season opener Oct. 8.
Antti Niemi, the Sharks' starting goaltender who led the Chicago Blackhawks to the 2010 Stanley Cup title, will not play in the Sharks' exhibition finale tomorrow night.
It's early, but the Sharks look good. Joe Pavelski's first preseason goal was all Thomas Greiss needed for his fourth win in the chippy Western Conference showdown with the Canucks.
