Sharks try to slow red-hot Golden Knights

The San Jose Sharks head into Monday night's home game with the Vegas Golden Knights just one point behind first place Calgary in the Pacific Division with 10 games remaining.

The Sharks (43-21-8, 94 points), who will be trying to end a two-game losing streak, can clinch a Stanley Cup playoff berth for the 14th time in 15 years with a point against the defending Western Conference champions. But that might be easier said than done considering the way the Golden Knights have been playing since their acquisition of Mark Stone from Ottawa at the trading deadline.

Vegas (40-27-5, 85 points) improved to 8-1-0 since Stone's arrival with a 6-3 home victory over Edmonton on Sunday night. Stone had a goal in the win and has had six points in the last five games, while also playing a key role in tightening up the Golden Knights' defense.
