Leino and Briere aren't good enough defensively to help out in their own zone against that top line. At least with Carter out there you've got a little more size to work with. I'm not saying we are doomed if they leave it the way it is, I would just feel more comfortable if they switched.
You wait for that to become a problem before trying to fix it.
When you get this far, it comes a time where you need to have Briere and Hartnell to just understand the situation and do what it takes to get the job done. Even though Montreal couldn't score any goals, they were back there backchecking. You haven't seen Regular Season Briere and Regular Season Hartnell for a while.
