DALLAS -- Here are the projected lineups for Saturday night’s game between the San Jose Sharks and Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center.

SHARKS

Patrick MarleauJoe ThorntonJoe Pavelski

Ryan Clowe – Logan CoutureMartin Havlat

Tommy WingelsMichal HandzusTim Kennedy

Andrew DesjardinsAdam BurishTJ Galiardi

Marc-Edouard VlasicDan Boyle

Brad Stuart - Brent Burns

Antti Niemi

Thomas Greiss

Scratches: Justin Braun, Scott Gomez

Injuries: James Sheppard (lower body)

Notes: After losing 2-1 at the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night, the Sharks are 3-4-1 on the road. Saturday’s contest will end a run of six straight games away from home; San Jose has gone 1-3-1 during this stretch. The Sharks are 1-2-0 in the second game of back-to-backs this season. San Jose did not have a morning skate on Saturday, so it's unclear who will start in goal. Antti Niemi played well in the loss to the Blackhawks, but Sharks coach Todd McLellan could give the nod to Thomas Greiss, who is 1-2-0 in three starts this season.

Notes: Tonight's game concludes a three-game homestand for Dallas. The Stars have lost their past two games, Sunday vs. the Calgary Flames and Thursday vs. the Vancouver Canucks, each by a 4-3 margin. Loui Eriksson has one goal over his past 10 games. Dallas is 3-3-1 at home this season and the Stars are 3-1-0 against fellow members of the Pacific Division.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
