Marc-Edouard Vlasic seems ready to make his triumphant return to the San Jose Sharks’ lineup tonight while Tim Heed might make a surprise debut as the Sharks play in Rogers Place for the first time. Friend of the Blog Kevin Kurz has the details in his gameday post ahead of an interesting Pacific tilt. Puck drop is set for 6 p.m. PT.

I was on Edmonton radio this morning with Lowetide to talk Sharks hockey, including San Jose’s three All-Star selections. A win for the Sharks combined with an Anaheim loss will put San Jose alone in first place in the Pacific division. It looks like Micheal Haley draws back into the lineup while Tommy Wingels gets the axe as Mirco Mueller loses his spot on defense with Vlasic’s return.

What do you think about head coach Pete DeBoer’s tweaks to the lineup?
