#2 The Sharks open a five game road trip starting in Montreal on Tuesday night will Boughner look at alternating goaltenders throughout the trip to get an idea who may have the hot hand?
#3 “My message was, I don’t think I’m making anybody a (No. 1) or a 1A,” Boughner told the Mercury News “These guys will have to compete all year for the net.”
#4 Len talk about the other goaltender James Reimer he was in goal for the Sharks minor league affiliate the Barracuda loads of experience with 173 wins and 131 loses, 11 years of NHL experience and Boughner is hoping these goaltenders can be reliable all season long.

The Oilers picked up an opening night win 3-2 in a shootout that’s a narrow contest how much of contest will the Oilers offense put up when they skate against Hill in net for the Sharks?
