Defenseman Jason Demers will miss his second straight game with a lower body injury when the Sharks host the Flyers on Monday night. Todd McLellan would not get into much detail about Demers’ injury, other than to say he hurt it skating and it’s not an ankle or a knee. Defenseman Matt Tennyson, who has yet to play in an NHL game this season, in en route from Worcester.

McLellan was asked if he’s reluctant to put players like Tennyson and Taylor Doherty, who was recalled from the AHL in January but did not play, in the lineup. “We may have to at some point.

WATCH: Joe Thornton undresses Corey Crawford on shootout goal
