Sharks vs. Canadiens: Martin Jones starting again
San Jose refuses to give its starter a break.
With James Reimer not quite ready to go for the Sharks tonight, head coach Peter DeBoer has tabbed Martin Jones to start both games in a back-to-back yet again. Aaron Dell has been recalled to the team but will not play (but he will get to wear a baseball hat and hold a clipboard on the bench).
Mike Brown will start for the Canadiens on the fourth line — so be ready for that incoming hat trick.
