NEWS

Covers Preview - The Pacific seems to be a bit stronger these days with Edmonton joining the likes of San Jose, Los Angeles and Anaheim in the division's upper crust, so games such as Saturday's showdown between the host Sharks and Ducks take on greater meaning. San Jose stretched its winning streak to three with a 3-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Friday while Anaheim is going in the wrong direction, losing to Chicago by the same score Friday to run its slide to three games.
