CLOWE OUT OF THE LINEUP, REMAINS DAY-TO-DAY
Sharks head coach Todd McLellan told members of the media that left wing Ryane Clowe will be out of the lineup on Tuesday night against the Flames. He also told reports that Jamie McGinn could see some time on the top line with the Joes (Thornton and Pavelski), but his line combinations are not set in stone.
