Prospal and Gaborik are getting by on pure talent alone now...putting up similar numbers...but their line is nowhere near the consistent force it was early in the year when they had someone to do the grunt work. Breaking up that line has been Tortorella's most egregious coaching error so far this season.

And in favor of what? Enver Lisin? Who skates around fast and does nothing else?
Yes, I loved that line than anything else. Rangers results started go down after Torts executed line changes.
