1. He was later in the game... The lines looked like this:

sully - Arnie - Horn
Spaling - Leggy - Ward
Jones - Goc - JP
Thur - Sant - Belak

2. No clue... I wondered that myself.

3. Klein is by far the best skater on the team. He did a good job against Jokinen all night, IMO. Belak, not sure other than to stand at the blueline when in the offensive zone like a dman. He does have a physical edge and is our fighter. But he doesn't seem to be playing his role well -- again, IMO.

4. You sure that wasn't me? LoL. Jk

My favorite part of the night though was Shea Freaking Weber nailing Phaneuf along the boards!
Ugh, you are not kidding. We had AT LEAST three 3-on-1's where we did not got a shot off at all. Heck, once we had a 4 on 2 and all we got was a 40-50 MPH weak wrist shot from the top of the faceoff circle right into Kipper's chest, and that was it.

I want our lines to look like this:

Hornqvist-Arnott-Dumont
Sullivan-Legwand-Ward
Jones-Goc-Santorelli
Thuresson-Spaling-Olvecky/Guite
Mine are similarly close. With Sully not being great defensively, I am hesitant to pencil him in on the 2nd line:

Horn - Arnie - JP
Spal - Leggy - Ward
Sully - Goc - Jones
Thurs - Sant - Belak
