On the SJ Sharks/NHL All-Star Game podcast with Len:

#1 It has been since 1997 that San Jose last hosted the All-Star Game. What differences as host city and in the arena have you seen? It’s been a while since the East-West format change in the All-Star Game, do you see a big difference since the All-tar game has gone to the 3-on-3?

#2 San Jose has always been welcoming city for visiting hockey fans and are expected to extend that same warm hospitality again.

#3 Talk about the Sharks’ All-Stars Brent Burns, Erik Karlsson, and Joe Pavelski. This has to be something special playing in front of the home crowd.

#4 You were the media relations manager for the California Golden Seals. The team is now defunct, but what would an All-Star Game mean for the city of Oakland and a team like the Seals during that time?

#5 The Sharks will have 11 days off to the next game, which is Feb. 22 vs. Arizona. Working on defense, they’ve been giving up six goals a game and looking at goaltender Martin Jones so he won’t give up six goals a game.

San Jose Sharks podcast with Mary Lisa Walsh: Sharks glad to get the win before hosting the NHL All-Star Game Saturday

On the San Jose Sharks podcast with Mary Lisa:

#1 The San Jose Sharks played to a victory just before the NHL All-Star break this Saturday with a win over the Washington Capitals 7-6 on Tuesday night, snapping a three-game losing streak.

#2 The Sharks didn’t want to host the NHL All-Star game in San Jose with a fourgame losing streak. That could have been another incentive to take it to the Caps in the overtime win.

#3 Lots of goals in for a 7-6 game, lots of offense, as the Sharks’ Logan Couture got the game-winning goal in overtime.

#4 There’s nothing like hosting an NHL-All Star game in your own rink. This has to be something special for the Sharks.

#5 It’s the skill competition Friday night and the NHL All-Star game Saturday night. Mary Lisa is covering both events and talks about how special this one will be.
