Sharks 2008-09 schedule: Going Back to Philly



The NHL released the full 2008-09 schedule yesterday, and as Cheechew noted the Sharks will open the regular season at home against the Anaheim Ducks. In addition to return visits from Ron Wilson and Vesa Toskala as the Maple Leafs return to San Jose December 2nd, Dan Boyle and Brad Lukowich's return visit to Tampa Bay October 25, and back-to-back games against Stanley Cup Finalists Pittsburgh and Detroit October 28th and 30th, the schedule also contains a rare home-at-home series with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Going back to Philly, I don't think so.

Since you brought up the home-and-away Flyer series, I guess I should point out that there's a blog called Slightly Saucy that seems to specialize in the often-ignored Philadelphia-San Jose rivalry.

It's the internet's go-to source for all, I mean both, of your Flyer-Shark needs.

Just found your site, thanks for the link.

Ducks/Hawks was a lot of fun last year, hope for more good games this season.

Ever since FX started running that ad campaign I've been hoping someone would use it in this context. Bravo to you sir.

haha Our blog is what happens when you have one hockey-loving girl from San Jose going to school with another hockey-crazed girl in Philly. Hijinx, and Flyers-Sharks love, ensued.
