10.17: ANA/SJ Preview with Brodie and Kevin
Find out which players plan to retun for upcoming roadtrip.
-- -- checking this out Brodie Brazil here along with Kevin here's Kevin just inside the sharks' dressing room and we had two pieces of good news not only for the Sharks uniting goal. But as well in terms -- their forward lines -- have like now I did we know that -- life. Yeah is gonna return Friday against New Jersey and apologists. We got anti Niemi tonight. So. Sharks should have a lineup and attendance are this long road -- its -- again. Since a bit of relief for Todd McLellan because he's been the middleman between the media. And the players and he's not a guy that can control these injuries situations obviously but I think He felt a little bit relieved to say. Going with Niemi and Marty you'll be back on this day. Yet He has to be out because it was full wind up teams lost a lot of his first three so. And He did a good news that you get at this point is. Positive and what do you feel about the direction the team is going right now they had yesterday to practice and obviously there's a lot of kinks in their game. They're not pleased with a lot of style type things and just finding themselves early on that they discussed tell us here this morning about how things they wanna go about differently. Yet they're not they have some pretty big name guys who have been on the night yet Marleau Jeff Gordon as a point yet we'll be -- us have a goal yet. But McClellan waited out just now and rightly so that they're getting their chances. They're out chasing the opposition so you would think that at some point that would come. It's not to use it as an excuse but I would say the last two games Friday night and Saturday night here those chances weren't there. They just want Barry and I got the sense in asking a couple of players they say hey you know what we can't rely on its gonna happen in time. But it is gonna happen in time. Yet they were much better. On Saturday against Saint Louis and they were on Friday in Anaheim they were little more aggressive at the chances were there as as we just said. They just have to burial -- this point and no better time than tonight's start against division. And San Jose would like to get.
