Joe Thornton will miss tonight's game after suffering an injury against Anaheim, taking an awkward check from Clayton Stoner. Jumbo has not missed a game since the 2010-11 season.
Meanwhile, Nieto has been moved up to the first line where Pavelski will center him and Hertl. It's going to be a tough test for this team against a very good St. Louis team desperate for a win. We will see just how the Sharks perform without Thornton for the first time in a long time.
