Aaron Dell gets his second start of the season against the Philadelphia Flyers and Marcus Sorensen draws back into the lineup as the San Jose Sharks look to stop a three-game losing streak in the City of Brotherly Love.
Friend of the Blog Kevin Kurz has all the latest updates on his Twitter feed this morning and I’ve pieced together San Jose’s projected lines from there. He supplied Philadelphia’s projected lines. I’m a little surprised Tim Heed and Kevin Labanc aren’t playing today after they were recalled by San Jose yesterday; perhaps we’ll see them both against New Jersey tomorrow morning.
The Sharks wrap up their road trip tomorrow in New Jersey and return to SAP Center on Wednesday to host the Florida Panthers. San Jose’s bye week is approaching — including today’s game the Sharks have five games until getting five days off. The team could certainly use it. Go Sharks.
