UPDATE: Sharks vs. Senators Lines: Stalock draws in
Sharks radio broadcaster Dan Rusanowsky tells the Mercury News' Curtis Pashelka that Stalock will start.
UPDATE (4:48 PM): Alex Stalock will start tonight, the San Jose Mercury News' Curtis Pashelka confirmed with Dan Rusanowsky. Jones gets rest after all, and Stalock has opportunity to prove his relief appearance against Calgary was not a fluke.
The Sharks will not make any lineup changes from last night's win over the Maple Leafs, according to CSN Bay Area's Kevin Kurz. This includes backup goaltender Alex Stalock, who will not see action on the second night of a back-to-back. Somewhat surprisingly, Stalock's lone start on the front or back end of a back-to-back came in October against the New York Islanders. Given Stalock's subpar .891 SV% this season and DeBoer's history of riding number one goaltenders in New Jersey, it's likely DeBoer will ride Jones as much as he can.
