McLellan lets Sharks know he expects more

ANAHEIM -- San Jose Sharks coach Todd McLellan left open the possibility of lineup changes after what he called "easily" the team's most disappointing loss of the season Saturday.

But San Jose had an optional skate Monday and the most McLellan revealed was that Ryane Clowe would not play against the Anaheim Ducks because of a reported shoulder injury, while indicating there were no call-ups. Antti Niemi will start in goal.

"We'll make some decisions on other players after that," McLellan said.

Clowe was injured in the first period of a 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, after which McLellan questioned his team's motivation and effort. He was forced to mix and match lines because of Clowe's absence, but added it probably wouldn't have made a difference.

Healthy Stars look to salvage finale of homestand

DALLAS -- After a highly disappointing 8-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in front of a sellout crowd at American Airlines Center on Saturday, the Dallas Stars return to the ice against the Calgary Flames on Monday.

The Stars are 0-2-0 against the Flames this season, having lost to them 7-4 at Scotiabank Saddledome on Feb. 13 and then falling 4-3 at home four days later. Dallas coach Glen Gulutzan has a formula for salvaging the final contest in a four-game homestand, a stretch in which the Stars are 0-2-1 and have been outscored 14-2.

"I think consistency [is the key]," Gulutzan said. "I think playing a 60-minute hockey game [is key]. I know that sounds redundant, but if it's 1-1, 0-0 after two, that's fine. We've just got to play 60 minutes."

The Stars enter this game almost completely healthy. Fourth-line wing Ryan Garbutt will miss a second straight game with a hand injury and veteran defenseman Stephane Robidas was absent from the morning skate, but for good reason.

Projected lineups for Flyers, Lightning

TAMPA -- The Philadelphia Flyers will look to go into a six-day break on a high note when they visit the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN, RDS).

Both teams should be desperate for points; the Flyers are enter 11th in the Eastern Conference, four points out of a playoff spot. The Lightning are two points behind Philadelphia in 12th.

Also Monday, Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen will become the 282nd skater to play in 1,000 NHL games, the sixth player born in Finland to reach that mark -- and the first ever to do it on his birthday. Timonen turned 38 on Monday.

Here is what the lineups likely will be when the Flyers and Lightning take the ice Monday:

Rangers re-load big guns on top line

Mired in a three-game losing streak in which they have scored only two goals, the New York Rangers appear set to reunite their three biggest guns on one line Monday against the Carolina Hurricanes.

According to reporters in attendance in Greenburgh, N.Y., Marian Gaborik, Brad Richards and Rick Nash skated together on a line at practice. It was a common sight during the first two weeks of the season, but the unit eventually was broken up in an effort to give the team a more balanced look offensively.

Nash has been a consistent performer all season -- he has 9 goals and 23 points in 23 games -- but Richards and Gaborik have been mired in slumps since the season's early stages. Richards has two goals and six assists in his past 20 games, while Gaborik has three goals and six assists in his past 22 games, and just one goal in his past 14 games.

Melrose: My five favorite legendary arenas

I'm a lucky man because of when my playing career took place. I was in the NHL from 1979 until 1986, which meant I got to see all those new buildings, but I also got to play in some of the classic older buildings right as the architecture of arenas was changing.

The new arenas are gorgeous. They're much more luxurious. But they're all the same. They all hold 20,000 people, they all have private boxes, the ice is exactly the same, the lighting is exactly the same, the concourses are exactly the same. There's no uniqueness -- Philly is L.A. is Chicago is Pittsburgh. They're all beautiful buildings, but they don't have the character and the uniqueness of the old ones.

That's why the old ones are the ones that really have a place in my heart. These are my five favorite legendary arenas of all time.

Quote of the Day

I've been so fortunate, blessed, to play a long time with some great players and be on power plays, play in some great cities and stuff. It's been fun.
