Karri Ramo gets tonight's start between the pipes. The Sharks will trot out Antti Niemi. Ramo is 8-9-4 this season, with a .905 save percentage and a 2.75 GAA. He allowed two goals on 33 shots against the Canucks on Saturday, and at this point is clearly a better option than Reto Berra (5-14-2, .894, 3.13). History is not on his side - he's 0-2 with a GAA over six against San Jose. Niemi is 25-10-6 this year and 11-2-1 all time against Calgary.
