Babcock plays Zetterber & Datsyuk on different lines, Clowe/Couture/Wingels would've been outright owned by Datsyuk, so McLellan moved Marleau w/ them.
Thornton and Pavs are more than capable of the heavy lifting against Zetterberg.
The problem this team is having is they can't finish their chances with any sort of consistency and their D zone coverage is brutal.
The first goal defelcted off of White (may have been Boyle) who was...well, I don't know what he was doing.
The 2nd goal, w/ low shots from distrance Niemi has to go into the butterfly to cover the bottom of the net for either the shot or a deflection - which he did, if it hits his pad it's going to bounce out...Burns was standing right there, got just enough of it to land on Miller's stick.
MacDonald gave up many rebounds that the Sharks either overskated or the puck bounced or they whiffed...they have had NO puck luck for a while now.
People love to get confirmation of their blind hatred for Niemi, but the problems right now run much deeper than a bad goal against here or there.
Greiss has also given up 8 goals in his last 3 starts, not exactly stellar either.
