The Colorado Avalanche and San Jose Sharks face off on Next Gen night in Ball Arena on Sunday night. Both teams are having their struggles this season, but still are very different in terms of where they are in the standings and as a team.

Both of these teams played a close game early in the season. MacKenzie Blackwood nearly single-handedly beat the Avs in San Jose, until Cale Makar scored in the final minute to tie it at one until Colorado won in the shootout. Can the Sharks work the same magic and pull out a win this time around?
