Sharks vs. Flames Lines: Melker Karlsson back in lineup

Head coach Peter DeBoer has shaken up the Sharks lines again, as Melker Karlsson slots back onto the fourth line and Nick Spaling joins Patrick Marleau and Joonas Donskoi on the third line. The top unit of Tomas Hertl, Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski remains unchanged as do the defense pairings.

Martin Jones will get the first half of the back-to-back, while James Reimer is likely to start in Edmonton on Tuesday.
