2012–13 San Jose Sharks season

The 2012–13 San Jose Sharks season was the club's 22nd season in the National Hockey League. The regular season was reduced from its usual 82 games to 48 due to the 2012–13 NHL lockout; the Sharks started the 2012–13 season with a perfect record. Patrick Marleau scored the Sharks first goal of the season, in the second period of the regular season opener against the Calgary Flames. February would however be troublesome – in 12 games the Sharks would only get two wins and a total of eight points; the Sharks were successful at home in March, with a loss in overtime. On the road, they had less success -- registering five losses and an overtime loss. After eight seasons with the Sharks, Douglas Murray was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 25; the Sharks were active around the trade deadline. This is Hannan's second stint with San Jose. On April 23, 2013, in the final home game of the regular season, the Sharks defeated the Stars 3–2 to clinch a playoff berth; the Sharks finished with a home record of 17–2–5 and qualified for the playoffs for the ninth consecutive season.
