SAN JOSE -- The San Jose Sharks began scrambling to adjust their forward lines early in the first period of Game 1 of their Western Conference Quarterfinals series against the Vancouver Canucks when Martin Havlat suffered an injury.
The Sharks are still scrambling.
When practice began Monday, injured defenseman Jason Demers (left ankle) was skating with the forwards, and injured forward Adam Burish was practicing for the first time since breaking his right hand in Game 4 against Vancouver.
Demers and Burish are just two potential options for coach Todd McLellan's lineup Tuesday night when the Sharks face the Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 of their semifinals series at HP Pavilion (10 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN, RDS).
Center Logan Couture didn't practice, but McLellan said he'll definitely play in Game 4. Couture suffered an apparent injury to his left leg early in the second period Saturday night in the Sharks' 2-1 overtime win in Game 3 against the Kings. He returned by the end of the second period and wound up scoring the game-winning goal.
"Just gave him some time off the ice," McLellan said. "He'll be playing."
