The big names came to play in Monday’s 6-4 win over the Arizona Coyotes, with goals from Brent Burns, Logan Couture, Erik Karlsson and Evander Kane among those that sent the San Jose Sharks home with a win. Newcomer Alexander Barabanov also earned his first goal in teal halfway through the third period.

The performance earned him a promotion, as the forward lines continue to see a shake up, with Ryan Donato and Dylan Gambrell out with injuries. A new-look top line will feature Barabanov, Tomas Hertl and Kane. Brinson Pasichnuk will make his NHL debut on the blue line and Josef Korenar will make his second consecutive start in net.

The Coyotes will be sticking with Monday night’s lineup.

Here’s everything you need to know to tune in:
