San Jose Sharks: Spreading The Wealth Will Be Key in Playoffs

When it comes to losing streaks, sometimes coaches have to dig deep into the bag of tricks in order to get their team to snap out of a funk.

San Jose Sharks Head coach Todd McLellan did exactly that on Tuesday night in Minnesota as he split up his team's top three scorers onto three different lines.

By separating his star players, McLellan landed on the following forward combinations:

Malhotra-Marleau-Pavelski

Clowe-Thornton-Mitchell

Heatley-Couture-Setoguchi

McGinn-Nichol-Ortmeyer

The Sharks may have not been firing on all cylinders against the Wild but thanks to the change in lines, they were able to come away with a solid 4-1 victory to finish the road trip.

In fact, the talent was so widely spread out through the lines combinations that four different Shark forwards saw more ice time than Joe Thornton.

Now will these lines continue into the playoffs?
