At Sharks invitation, their NHL affiliate, the Bulls (and next most local ECHL team, the Stockton Thunder), changed their 1/16/13 game to 12/17/12 and played it at HP Pavilion. Tickets were free to SJ Sharks and SF Bulls STH (guessing the latter will be getting credit/refund), and about 3400 tickets not taken were made available for free to public. (All 17,652 tickets were claimed; ~12,800 attended) Last ECHL game played in (then current) NHL venue before that was like 1993.

(FTR, the Bulls just announced special jerseys -- classic (circa 1993) Sharks jerseys with Bulls logo -- to be worn at two games in February. A number of Sharks fans have suggested they want one.)
