Devils, Sharks meet as trade talks swirl

Teams that look a lot different than they did a week ago -- and could look different again a week from now -- will meet Thursday night when the New Jersey Devils host the San Jose Sharks in a battle of rebuilding teams in Newark, N.J.

Both teams are coming off losses endured in the midst of eventful weeks. The Devils fell to the host St. Louis Blues 3-0 on Tuesday night. The Sharks last played Monday, when they lost to the visiting Florida Panthers 5-3.

The game Tuesday night was the first for the Devils since Sunday, when they traded captain Andy Greene to the New York Islanders a couple of hours before facing the Columbus Blue Jackets. New Jersey then dealt Blake Coleman, who shared the team lead in goals, to the Tampa Bay Lightning during the 4-3 shootout win. Coleman was scratched as a precaution with the trade talks heating up.
