The Sharks and Hawks will kick-off the 3rd round of Stanley Cup action Sunday, when they take to the ice in a much anticipated matchup thats leaving many scratching their heads on predicting the outcome.
Both teams have depth up front in the forward position which will stress the importance of line matchups for McLellan and Quennville especially when the series moves to Chicago. There's no doubt that the Blackhawks possess a more talented and threatening blueline, but the Sharks hold the edge in goaltending.
This series will feature 14 Olympians, many of which were teammates in February, and is expected to be hard hitting and high tempo.
Game one can be seen at noon pt on NBC
