Sharks vs. Predators, Game 7 Lines: Matt Nieto out, Tommy Wingels in

New, comments

Nieto is out with an undisclosed injury.

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Matt Nieto did not participate in practice yesterday and will not play tonight. Tommy Wingels is the beneficiary of Nieto's injury and will likely play on the fourth line.

I'm not thrilled with the Chris Tierney: Third line center experience, but in all reality the Sharks need their top six to perform to win this game. If San Jose rolls with the same lines as it did at yesterday's practice, they'll look something like this.

Projected Sharks Lines

Tomas Hertl - Joe Thornton - Joe Pavelski

Patrick Marleau - Logan Couture - Joonas Donskoi

Melker Karlsson - Chris Tierney - Joel Ward

Dainius Zubrus - Nick Spaling - Tommy Wingels

Marc-Edouard Vlasic - Justin Braun

Paul Martin - Brent Burns

Brenden Dillon - Roman Polak

Martin Jones

James Reimer

Projected Predators Lines

Colin Wilson - Mike Fisher - James Neal

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Craig Smith

Calle Jarnkrok - Mike Ribeiro - Viktor Arvidsson

Mikka Salomaki - Paul Gaustad - Colton Sissons

Roman Jose - Shea Weber

Mattias Ekholm - Ryan Ellis

Anthony Bitetto - Barret Jackman

Pekka Rinne

Carter Hutton
