Mirco Mueller should get back in the San Jose lineup this weekend.

The Sharks play twice and while Mueller and Barclay Goodrow have sat out the last three games as healthy scratches, coach Todd McLellan does not want them to languish in the press box. "It's important that they stay in the mix and they stay on top of their game," McLellan said. "The practice time has been good for them. Coaches, when you win, you like to keep kind of the same group together for a while. They haven't played, but it's no fault of their own. Just the group has had some success." Mueller has three points in 21 games this season.
