As Martin Havlat checks in for the San Jose Sharks in Game 3, the Los Angeles Kings defense will look slightly different on Saturday as well.

Alec Martinez will be out of the lineup in favor of Keaton Ellerby. Matt Greene also is out of action, as the Los Angeles Times’ Helene Elliott points out. Winger Tanner Pearson is making his NHL debut.

Ellerby, 24, has appeared in four postseason games so far, averaging 10:17 minutes per game.

Havlat pushes Tim Kennedy out of the Sharks lineup, by the way.
