Today's skate was optional, which means those projected lines are just that — projected. If we hear anything closer to puck drop we'll update this post, but for now we're expecting to see Karlsson on the fourth line.
A day after being sent down, both Nikolay Goldobin and Mirco Mueller have been called up to the Sharks. I expect they'll both hang out in the press box tonight, though it'd be great to see Goldobin get in the game over someone like Haley. Expect the worst and hope for the best — the Fear the Fin motto.
Martin Jones is also your confirmed starter for the evening.
