SAN JOSE, California
– Comcast SportsNet California, the home of “Authentic Bay Area Sports,” will kick off their “Sharks Classic Games” series on Sat., Dec 8 at 4 p.m. The broadcast features a memorable matchup between the Sharks and division rival Los Angeles Kings that was played at the Cow Palace on December 26, 1992.

Sharks radio broadcasters Dan Rusanowsky and Jamie Baker will be on-hand at Stanley’s Sports Bar & Grill, located at Sharks Ice at San Jose, to mingle with fans and customers. The radio partners will sign autographs, pose for photographs and share behind-the-scenes stories from the early years of the Sharks organization.

“There’s nothing better than to get together with Sharks fans and talk about hockey,” Rusanowsky said. “We are looking forward to the event and reliving one of the memorable games from the Cow Palace years.”

Sharks Ice at San Jose is located at 1500 S. 10th Street (corner of 10th and Alma) in San Jose.

The “Sharks Classic Games” series is hosted in-studio by Comcast SportsNet anchor and rink-side reporter Brodie Brazil along with game analysis from Sharks play-by-play commentator Randy Hahn, television color analyst Drew Remenda and radio color commentator and former Sharks forward Jamie Baker.

The Dec. 8 broadcast is part of a ten-game series that will be shown on Comcast Sportsnet California thru May 2013.
