When the Sharks-CSNCA carriage agreement was announced last week, I fired off an email to CSNCA to ask what would happen in case of scheduling conflicts. Here’s the response:
Thank you for your email regarding the Kings and Sharks on Comcast SportsNet California. Your assumption about our telecasts in the Sacramento area are correct. When the Kings and Sharks games overlap we will move the sharks to the Plus Ch. If the Kings game concludes we will then join the Sharks in progress.
In the bay area the Sharks will appear on our main Ch. due to NBA blackout restrictions.

A similar arrangement will be needed in the spring when the A’s season begins. We’re a few months off from any schedule finalization there.
