Sharks vs. Penguins Lines: Jones in net, lines juggled
San Jose turns to Jones against Pittsburgh.
After playing with a short bench for much of Thursday's win over Philadelphia, the Sharks have some new lines for tonight's contest against Pittsburgh. Matt Nieto, Chris TIerney and Mike Brown are your fourth line of the night, while Nikolay Goldobin will slot into the Tomas Hertl line with Tommy Wingels.
Matt Tennyson replaces Mirco Mueller on defense and Martin Jones will start again. I expect Alex Stalock to get his chance tomorrow in Columbus.
