San Jose, coming off a 1-0 loss Friday night to Anaheim, likely will have one lineup change. Defenseman Jim Vandermeer will make his Sharks debut in place of Colin White, and team with Jason Demers in the third pair.
Sharks coach Todd McLellan said there's a "very good chance" Vandermeer will play against St. Louis.
"I'm definitely excited to get going, whether it's tonight or the next game or the game after that," Vandermeer said. "Whenever it is, I'll be ready to go."
It's a little different but it feels amazing. A new chapter in my life and I'm excited. It's been amazing. Better than I expected. The weather is great, the place is just amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. I'm glad to get the season going.
