New, comments

Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer made his first change of the postseason by replacing Tommy Wingels with Dainius Zubrus on the fourth line. Wingels hasn't particularly played well, though he's arguably been better than the likes of Nick Spaling during the playoffs thus far. San Jose's first losing streak of the playoffs prompted the first change, as DeBoer has had the luxury of not making too many tough decisions during the first nine games of the playoffs.

Here are the projected lines from tonight's contest, per FOTB Kevin Kurz.

Projected Sharks Lines

Tomas Hertl – Joe Thornton – Joe Pavelski

Joonas Donskoi – Logan Couture – Joel Ward

Matt Nieto – Patrick Marleau – Melker Karlsson

Nick Spaling – Chris Tierney – Dainius Zubrus

Marc-Edouard Vlasic – Justin Braun

Paul Martin – Brent Burns

Brenden Dillon – Roman Polak

Martin Jones

James Reimer
