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. The head coach said there is a chance Tennyson, who got in four games for the Sharks last season, could play against Philadelphia. 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. We feel good about it. Tenny has played, and when he played he went right in and fit in well. “Scotty Hannan, since about the end of November, hasn’t played a lot because of injuries. We’d like to get him going on a consistent basis, and get him rolling.” Tyler Kennedy, who has missed the last two games with a lower body injury, could return to the lineup. Kennedy was one of only a few players to skate on Sunday at Sharks Ice. The majority of the team had off. Raffi Torres also continues to skate, but indicated his most likely course of action would be to sit out until after the Olympic break. Torres has yet to play after right knee surgery in September, and said last week he would “maybe” try to play before the break, but that now appears highly unlikely. The Sharks have three homes games left against Philadelphia, Dallas and Columbus, before the break begins on Feb. 8. The Flyers and Blue Jackets are the only two NHL teams that San Jose has yet to face this season. McLellan gave his initial thoughts on the Flyers, who have had an inconsistent year and currently sit out of playoff position. Philadelphia replaced head coach Peter Laviolette with Craig Berube just three games into the season.
