great post... the road game is an entirely different animal, especially in the playoffs. That's good adjustment from Carbo.

In Game 1 Dowd with Downie and Thorensen outplayed Lapierre with Dandenault and Streit, and although it was a limited match-up in terms of ice-time it ended up costing us a couple of goals. Putting Begin back with Lapierre should balance that match-up.

Also these lines should allow us to roll all 4 lines which is a great luxury in a road game. If the games close, Koivu and Kovalev should have a little more gas in the tank.
