DALLAS -- Here are the projected lineups for Saturday night’s game between the San Jose Sharks and Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center.
Patrick Marleau – Joe Thornton – Joe Pavelski
Ryan Clowe – Logan Couture – Martin Havlat
Tommy Wingels – Michal Handzus – Tim Kennedy
Andrew Desjardins – Adam Burish – TJ Galiardi
Marc-Edouard Vlasic – Dan Boyle
Brad Stuart - Brent Burns
Douglas Murray – Jason Demers
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.
Brenden Morrow – Jamie Benn – Jaromir Jagr

Dallas is 3-3-1 at home this season and the Stars are 3-1-0 against fellow members of the Pacific Division.
