Sharks' Marty Havlat leaves playoff opener with injury
Sharks coach Todd McLellan was forced to juggle his lines for most of Game 1 on Wednesday night after right wing Marty Havlat was forced to leave with an undisclosed injury about midway through the first period against the Vancouver Canucks. Havlat had 3:16 ice time in five shifts before leaving. He was credited with one shot on a power play, and it took Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo's best save of the opening period to keep the puck out of the net. McLellan used a range of players to fill Havlat's spot the rest of the first period on a line with Logan Couture and Patrick Marleau, including Tommy Wingels, Joe Pavelski and Raffi Torres
