SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Center Alyn McCauley was scratched from the San Jose Sharks' lineup Saturday for Game 2 of their first-round playoff series against St. Louis.

McCauley, the Sharks' third-leading scorer with 20 goals and 27 assists, tripped over Murray Baron's stick and went hard into the boards during the third period of Game 1. He left the game with a shoulder injury, but returned for two shifts in overtime of the Sharks' 1-0 victory.

Mark Smith took McCauley's place, suiting up for his first NHL playoff game.
