SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The San Jose Sharks have no more margin for error if they hope to win the Pacific Division.
The Sharks head into Wednesday night's showdown at first place Anaheim needing a win to stay alive in the race for the division title. Even with a victory, San Jose will still need help to pass the Ducks in the final two games of the regular season.
The Sharks trail the Ducks by three points and will likely need to win their final three games, including in regulation on Wednesday night, and hope the Ducks lose one of their final two games to Los Angeles or Colorado in regulation as well.
