The Sharks look to bounce back in the second half of a back-to-back by taking on the Dallas Stars for the first time this season at SAP Center at 7 p.m. San Jose fell to the Nashville Predators on Saturday night to snap a three-game winning streak while the Stars lost to Ottawa 5-2 way back on Wednesday.

Melker Karlsson is out with a lower body injury while David Schlemko remains on the shelf. Schlemko’s injury is now of the long term variety as far as this writer is concerned. Don’t expect to see him back on the ice any time served. That’s good news for Dylan DeMelo.

Lines are provided by Friend of the Blog Kevin Kurz. He expects Sorensen to skate on the fourth line with Chris Tierney and Micheal Haley (as do I). This is a good opportunity for the 24 year old to make amends for a rough game against the Winnipeg Jets way back on Monday.

This is the first of three meetings against the Dallas Stars this season. San Jose will next play against Buffalo at home on Tuesday. This is the first of four games this week.

Aaron Dell will get the start in net for the Sharks. Kari Lehtonen gets the start for the Stars.
