Sharks @ Blues

Lots of questions ahead of tonight’s game. Which version of the Blues will turn up? The team that so convincingly beat the Canucks? Or the team that basically rolled over when the Predators came to town? Following Dave Checkett’s comments yesterday, this is going to be one very interesting game – miss it at your peril.

With all defensemen healthy again, Darryl Sydor will sit this one out and his place will be taken by Carlo Colaiacovo. Alex Pietrangelo sits out again as well. The lines for tonight have been altered slightly…but they probably won’t stay the same – not with Andy Murray’s propensity for switching them around:

David Perron-Andy McDonald-Brad Boyes
T.J. Oshie-Keith Tkachuk-David Backes
Paul Kariya-Jay McClement-B.J. Crombeen
Brad Winchester-Patrik Berglund-Cam Janssen

Barret Jackman-Roman Polak
Carlo Colaiacovo-Erik Johnson
Eric Brewer-Mike Weaver

No word on who is starting in goal tonight but Chris Mason hasn’t got a great record against the Sharks so don’t be surprised if Conklin gets the start instead. I’m hoping Kariya doesn’t spend too long on the “shutdown” line. The guy needs to get out of his rut and to do that needs to play with goalscorers.
