Preview/Lines #9: Latest on Lorentz, Bonino & Nutivaara’s Health

Steven Lorentz left the game after getting boarded by Nicolas Deslauriers late Sunday.

Today, however, Lorentz said he’s passed concussion tests, and just had to contend with some neck stiffness, a lot of that on the flight back from Philadelphia to San Jose.

Lorentz didn’t have any big issue with the hit, though it was from behind: “That’s a guy who likes to finish his checks and you got to respect that about his game. He’s just trying to do what he does best.”

The 6-foot-4 center-winger, who just tallied his first goal as a member of the San Jose Sharks against the Flyers, is expected to suit up tonight.

David Quinn said it should be the same line-up as last game.

That means Nick Bonino is still out with an upper-body injury, though Quinn noted that Bonino is day-to-day and a possibility for Thursday. Bonino left the game briefly on Saturday after colliding with Kevin Labanc in the neutral zone on Saturday in New Jersey.

Also, Markus Nutivaara is no closer to returning to the San Jose Sharks line-up, per Quinn. The defenseman was limited to just one game last season because of hip surgery, and it appears that he’s still dealing with complications from that. Nutivaara is working out and getting treatment here, but he still isn’t skating yet.

Quinn confirmed that Reimer will start once again tonight.
