WATCH LIVE: San Jose Sharks at St. Louis Blues

An 82-game season is a long haul, so you can only read so much into any match.

Still, the San Jose Sharks (who spent on some trade pickups today) and the St. Louis Blues (who found out they’ll be without Alexander Steen for some time) are two franchises in murky places right now.

There’s talent on both sides, no doubt. Vladimir Tarasenko, Brent Burns, Jaden Schwartz, Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski are just a few examples of the players worth tuning in for.

Beyond that, with the deadline looming – even after San Jose did some homework early – a contest like this may steer a GM more in one direction or the other.
