Mike Brown back in for Sharks in Game 7


San Jose Sharks head coach Todd McLellan, looking to avoid coughing up a 3-0 series lead in the seventh and deciding game against the L.A. Kings in this first-round match-up, is shaking up his lineup.

As per Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area, Mike Brown is in the lineup for the Sharks and Martin Havlat is out. Brown has a goal and assist in this series (see his goal here), each coming in the first two games. The rugged forward has also been a physical presence in the game’s he’s played in this series.

In goal, the Sharks are going back to Antti Niemi, who didn’t start Game 6 after being pulled in the previous two games – both losses for San Jose.
