Preview: Sharks at Blues

The Blues, who have a firm hold on third place in the Central Division and are just two points behind Chicago for first, will be without second-leading scorer Alex Steen (upper body) but will have Jake Allen (lower body) at their disposal for the first time since Jan. 8. San Jose fell to 2-1-0 on its five-game road trip with a 5-2 loss at Carolina on Friday. The Sharks occupy third place in the Pacific and trail Los Angeles by five points for the top spot. Veteran center Joe Thornton hopes to begin another point streak after having his seven-game run – which began with a goal versus the Blues in their first meeting – was ended by the Hurricanes.<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 8 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network, Sportsnet
