    Among the additions who are expected to play in Friday’s game for San Jose are Luke Kunin, who will play on the top line with Hertl and Timo Meier, and fellow forwards Oskar Lindblom, Steven Lorentz, and Nico Sturm. The new defensemen in the lineup are Scott Harrington and Matt Benning. While the new players should help the Sharks become a better two-way team, there is no guarantee they can greatly improve an offense that ranked 30th in the NHL last season with 214 goals.
