Sharks vs. Blues lines, gamethread and where to watch

Don't expect Melker Karlsson to return.

John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

The Sharks play their fifth of six-straight road games as they take on St. Louis for the first time since the Western Conference Finals. Melker Karlsson did not skate this morning, so don't expect to see him back in the lineup against the Blues. For St. Louis, Vladimir Tarasenko and Alex Steen are questionable. Here's what our friends at St. Louis Gametimehad to say about that:

According to Jeremy Rutherford, If Steen is out, Dmitrij Jaskin will start where he ended the last game: on a line with Paul Stastny and Jaden Schwartz. If Tarasenko is out, Ty Rattie could play with Robby Fabbri and Jori Lehtera.

You can catch the game on CSN-California. Here's our preview graphic, which you would have already seen if you follow us on our new Instagram account. Just saying.

It's a Western Conference Finals rematch. #silencetheblues
