SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The San Jose Sharks responded to their quickest playoff exit in a run of eight straight postseason appearances with tinkering instead of a roster overhaul.
There will be some changes on the third and fourth lines as the Sharks plan to take a look at some younger players and former first-round pick Brad Stuart is back on defense seven years after being traded away.
But the core of the team is still strikingly similar to the group that got knocked out of the playoffs early with a five-game loss to St. Louis in the first round after two straight trips to the conference finals.
