San Jose players injured in first-round play
McCauley, the Sharks' third-leading scorer in the regular season, hasn't played since Game 1, when he tripped over Murray Baron's stick and injured his shoulder in a collision with the boards.
Thornton suffered an undisclosed injury late in Game 4 after scoring two goals in the Sharks' 4-3 victory.
