McLellan back on ice with Sharks
While San Jose Sharks coach Todd McLellan was conducting his first practice in five days on Friday, there's no guarantee he'll be behind the bench when his team hosts the St. Louis Blues on Saturday at HP Pavilion.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson said McLellan was conducting practice as part of the post-concussion protocol. The medical team then would provide further tests, and only then will his availability be determined.

McLellan has missed the past two games. He was hit by a stick in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild, and has been suffering from concussion-like symptoms. In his absence, assistant coach Jay Woodcroft has been running the bench.
Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
