The remaining 18 games in the 82-game schedule will involve the Sharks playing every opponent in the Eastern Conference at least once, home or away, with the three remaining games being devoted to interconference “at large” scheduling. This season San Jose’s “at-large” opponents are Buffalo, Philadelphia and 2012 Stanley Cup finalist New Jersey.

The Sharks three-way intra-state rivalry continues with the Anaheim Ducks (Nov. 24, Feb. 9, March 25) and the Los Angeles Kings (Dec. 20, March 2, March 14) each making three visits to San Jose.

The Sharks have a season-high seven-game road trip from Feb. 12 to Feb. 23. Immediately following that road trip, San Jose has a season-high nine-game homestand from Feb. 26 to March 14.

The 60th NHL All-Star Game will be held Jan. 27, 2013 in Columbus, Ohio. The All-Star break will be Jan. 25-27. The last Sharks game before the break will take place Jan. 22 at St. Louis, with the regular season resuming on Jan. 29 at Vancouver.
