Joel Ward will miss his second game in three days while David Schlemko also misses tonight’s game as the Sharks host the Flames in their return to SAP Center. San Jose hosts Calgary at 7:30 p.m. PT in what will be its first and only game until hosting Edmonton on Friday.
Martin Jones starts again for the Sharks, while Micheal Haley draws back into the lineup after being scratched against Chicago on Sunday. Schlemko may be nursing an injury, which allows Dylan DeMelo to see action tonight. The top nine and top four will presumably look the same for San Jose.
