Here are the lines, with Carey Price getting the start in goal:

Pacioretty-Koivu-D'Agostini
Kovalev-Plekanec-Dandenault
A. Kostitsyn-Higgins-Kostopoulos
Gorges-Lapierre-Laraque

On defence:

Markov-Komisarek
Bouillon-O'Byrne
Hamrlik-Brisebois

begin and sergei will be riding the pine for tonights game


Discuss.
I agree with sitting Sergei. It's about time.

Interesting to note that he's trying Kovalev on left wing.

Higgins at center is another test as we haven't replaced Lang yet.

No real surprise to see Dandenault back in the line-up, although I would have liked to see him on defense. But better him up front than O'Byrne!

I'm wondering if putting Gorges up front has anything to do with his "non-concussion" and the fact that he has one of the worse +/- of the team in recent weeks and by the same token, limit his ice time?

Even his detractors will have to admit that we miss Latendresse!

I think that those lines will be shambled in no time tonight and we'll see more traditional lines throughout the game.
