  1. Her’s an example of Torts letting his emotions rule his common sense. Gaborik on the third line? SEnding messages on what could be the last game of the season? The problem is Gaborik doesn’t have linemates to put him in a position to score. Richards was brought in to be his center but it obviously hasn’t worked out. Net resuslt,two multi million dollar contracts unable to mesh. Brilliant startegy Slats!

    • Gaborik had more chances on the third line the other night than any game this series, plus it spreads their defensive coverages out. Common sense really.

    • He was on the third line last game too and got a lot of chances. I see no reason to change it.

      • probably not a coincidence that really none of the forwards (besides cally)skated more than 15-16 minutes and they looked better than they have all series

  2. Zuccarello is actually a healthy scratch at this point. I would play him over Rupp, but Rupp seems like the safe choice.
