Kari Lehtonen will be back in net tonight after missing four games with a sore back.
He is 13-7-2 with a 2.59 GAA and a .915 save percentage.
The Sharks played in Nashville Wednesday night and did not skate this morning, but the guess in the arena is that they will play Antero Nittymaki. He is 9-3-3 with a 2.43 GAA and .908 save percentage, but he has had one start in the past eight games. He allowed four goals on 35 shots in that one, but beat Philadelphia in overtime.
In addition to Lehtonen coming back into the lineup, Toby Petersen also will return. He's missed six games with a hand injury.
Brenden Morrow had his broken nose set Wednesday and skated in the morning. He will wear the ``bubble'' shield and said he feels good.
Krys Barch and Matt Niskanen are expected to be healthy scratches.
The Stars line should look something like this:
