Sharks coach Todd McLellan refused to name a starting goalie -- Thomas Greiss or Antti Niemi -- for tonight's game. Greiss was the first goalie off the ice during Saturday's optional skate, an indication he'll probably start his third straight game.
Niemi, who underwent surgery to remove a cyst from a leg in late September, missed the first game and dressed as the backup Friday night.
"Nemo (Niemi) is available to us, and we'll make a decision before the game tonight on who is playing," McLellan said.
It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
