SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Sharks have shaken up their fourth line after losing the first two games of the Western Conference finals against Vancouver.

Coach Todd McLellan suited up Jamie McGinn, Andrew Desjardins and Jamal Mayers for Game 3 on Friday night. It was the playoff debut for Desjardins. McGinn has played four times this post-season, while Mayers had sat four of the past five games.

The three replaced Ben Eager, Scott Nichol and Benn Ferriero. Eager was a focal point in Game 2 when he committed five minor penalties and was given a misconduct, and scored a goal. Nichol had played all 15 playoff games this year before the benching.

The Canucks put Alexandre Bolduc and Tanner Glass in the lineup in place of Jeff Tambellini and Cody Hodgson.
