The Sharks are coming off a split of games last weekend against the Swift Current Diamond Energy Wildcats. The first was a 6-5 shootout win by the Sharks last Saturday night. Swift Current built a 4-0 first period lead but the Sharks got one in the first, two in the second and two in the third to tie the game. It was Kiana McNinch’s goal in the shootout session that lifted the Sharks to the win.

The second game was won by the Wildcats 3-1 on Sunday. The only goal for the Sharks was a power play goal by McNinch in the third period to break the shutout.

The Sharks currently stand sixth in the league with a record of 7-14-2-1. After this weekend’s games the Sharks will have four games left to go in the regular season.
