The Sharks will host the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday in their first 1 p.m. (Western) game at HP Pavilion in nearly four years, and forward Ryane Clowe is excited.
"I enjoy (early afternoon starts)," Clowe said. "I like to get up, get some breakfast, get to the rink and play a game." The last time the Sharks played a 1 p.m. game at home was March 21, 2009, when they beat Dallas 5-2. Forward Joe Pavelski had four points in that game as he, Brad Lukowich and Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle were each a plus-4.
