News: Mueller was ruled out indefinitely Friday with a left hand injury, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Impact: Mueller was initially listed as day-to-day after hurting his thumb while blocking a shot in Thursday's game against the Red Wings, but it appears after further evaluation, the injury was deemed more serious. Coach Todd McLellan was unwilling to concede that Mueller would miss the remainder of the season, but with only eight games left on the schedule and the rookie quite possibly dealing with some sort of fracture, a return wouldn't seem especially promising. Matt Irwin is slated to replace Mueller in the Sharks' lineup.
News: Stalock will start in net Saturday against the Flyers, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Impact: Stalock hasn't made an appearance in net since March 18, but will finally return to the net Saturday. In 17 games this season, the netminder has posted a 6-7-1 record with a 2.65 GAA and .903 save percentage. He'll receive the benefit of facing a weak offensive opponent Saturday in the Flyers, who average a middling 2.57 goals per game.
