Game Day Blog - Sharks @ Coyotes - 3\/10\/2012

With the Sharks and the Coyotes set to face each other in a crucial Pacific Division tilt on Saturday night in Glendale, here are the links you need to read before the game:

NIEMI STARTS, POSSIBLE RETURN TO LINEUP FOR GALIARDI
Mercury News beat writer David Pollak reports Antti Niemi will start and indicates that forward TJ Galiardi is likely to return after not being in the lineup on Thursday night in Dallas. Both the Sharks (0-2-2) and the Coyotes (0-4-1) are looking for their first victories in the month of March.

CLOWE: START IS KEY, HAVE TO GET THE FIRST GOAL
CSN Sharks Insider Kevin Kurz reports on comments from alternate captain Ryane Clowe on the importance of scoring first against a defensively responsible Coyotes squad. In other news, goaltender Mike Smith is expected to start opposite of Niemi.

BEHIND ENEMY LINES
Phoenix Coyotes writer Dave Vest previews the game including quotes from Phoenix coach Dave Tippett on both teams being "desperate for points" after watching Dallas grab hold of the Pacific Division lead. Defenseman Rosty Klesla is probable, center Martin Hanzal is doubtful.

'LOW-KEY' PRACTICE ON FRIDAY FOR 'YOTES
Arizona Republic beat writer Jim Gintonio reports on Phoenix's "low-key" practice on Friday, looking for solutions in the midst of a five-game winless streak. The Sharks are in the midst of a winless streak as well, currently at four games since beating the Flyers 1-0 on Feb. 28 in San Jose.
