Our "two line attack" included the Kovalev line being rendered meaningless by a defensive plug by both Boston and Philly. They also focused heavily on stopping everything from us on the point and we had no counterattack. With a "three line attack", and especially with Koivu's line now being just as deadly (right now deadlier, second half of the season I'm betting the Plek line will be just as scary), teams have two lines to shut down with absolutely no line to shut down our third. It's an avalanche effect.
