Bulls, Thunder bring ECHL to HP Pavilion


The San Francisco Bull and Stockton Thunder take the ECHL to HP Pavilion, the home of the National Hockey League’s San Jose Sharks. Tonight’s game faces off at 7:30 p.m. PT, and is available for purchase through America ONE Sports, the “Official Broadband and Mobile Broadcaster” of the ECHL.

Tonight’s game was originally scheduled for January 16 at the Cow Palace, but was moved to tonight to accommodate the change in venue. A near capacity crowd is expected at HP Pavilion, which seats 17,562 fans for hockey.

It will be the first ECHL game at an NHL venue since Oct. 20, 2002, when the Wheeling Nailers hosted the Peoria Rivermen at Mellon Arena, the former home of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
