Sharks vs. Blues, Game 5 Lines: Martin Jones starts again

New, comments

No goaltender change for either team ahead of game five.

John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

After James Reimer relieved Martin Jones midway through game four, there was little more than a murmur about the former Maple Leaf starting game five. So it's not much of a surprise that Jones is back in net as the starter for the Sharks in a pivotal game in St. Louis. No other changes for San Jose, who will look to bounce back after a rough performance on Saturday afternoon.

St. Louis rolls with Jake Allen again, who did not play particularly well in game four. If the Sharks get better goaltending (or more accurately, play better defense) they'll be in good shape. Lines from FOTB Kevin Kurz.
