NEWS

Covers Preview - The road-weary San Jose Sharks vie for only their second home win of the season when they host the New York Islanders on Saturday night. San Jose, which is playing 16 of its first 21 games away from home, had its chance for a perfect three-game road trip thwarted when it squandered a two-goal third-period lead in a 4-3 shootout loss at Minnesota on Thursday.
