No. 15:  San Jose Sharks

Previous:  9th

Season Record:  16-11-1

Brent Burns and Joe Pavelski both lead the Sharks with 25 points.  This San Jose team currently sits in the first wild card spot in the Western Division.  But with 33 points, they are only a few points behind their competition.  Every win counts, as they head on a four-game road trip.
