from David Pollak of Working the Corners at the Mercury News,
Sharks coach Todd McLellan hinted that there might be some lineup changes coming for Game 3. But of course he wasn’t about to signal what they might be.
Any alterations, though, likely would be about getting a bigger team on the ice to confront the Blues’ physical play. Obviously among McLellan’s options are Michal Handzus, Brad Winchester and Colin White.
“We have to look at some of the players who we haven’t used yet to see if they’ll make a significant difference,” McLellan said. “We have some size there. But when you give up a little speed for size, the game tempo changes.”
Center Dominic Moore is another player that McLellan also will have available. Moore’s broken nose was badly swollen Sunday after taking a punch from the Blues’ Vladimir Sobotka the night before. But Moore skated at practice Sunday and said he’s ready to play.
