San Jose Sharks will reportedly face off against the Calgary Flames to start the NHL lockout-shortened 2013 season. The game will be played on Sunday, January 20, in Calgary.
Among the storylines entering the 2013 NHL season for the Sharks is the injury-ridden defense, how the team will bounce back from a disappointing
year and the continuous development of the problematic special teams.
Joe Thornton reportedly returned to the Bay Area on Thursday from Switzerland, and a brief 7-10 day training camp will start in the coming days for the entire NHL.
