Sharks vs. Predators, Game 5 Lines: Dainius Zubrus draws into the lineup
Peter DeBoer has made his first change of the postseason.
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
Projected Predators Lines
Filip Forsberg – Ryan Johansen – Craig Smith
Colin Wilson – Mike Fisher – James Neal
Pontus Aberg – Calle Jarnkrok – Viktor Arvidsson
Colton Sissons – Paul Gaustad – Miikka Salomaki
Anthony Bitetto – Barret Jackman
