Strategies

- Team will play a Left-Wing Lock Defensive System (see Jaroslav Pitner's profile for details)
- Larry Robinson will change the defensemen and Quackenbush-Coulter will be hard-matched against a stacked top line

- H Richard and Handzus will take most defensive zone draws
- The Richard line will get the toughest defensive matchups at home, but will not change out on the fly
- With offense from every line and a defensive presence on every line, the forwards are well-equipped to dictate the play, regardless of matchup.

- The following shutdown lines will be put together for defensive-zone draws at the end of a period or to shut things down at the end of a game:

Herbie Lewis - Henri Richard - Tommy Phillips
Fleming MacKell - Michal Handzus- Shane Doan

- Maurice Richard will be double shifted on occasion to give him more minutes and get him out against lesser defensemen
- Maurice and Palffy will sometimes switch spots for a few shifts to get the Rocket out against lesser defensemen
