Montreal is currently missing:

Moen-Gomez-Gionta

Say what you will, but that was basically our first line while beating Washington and Pittsburgh in the playoffs.

That is the only reason Darche is getting ice time right now. People are blowing this way out of proportion. The only difference between the last two games is that Martin used Nokelainen on the 3rd line (a terrible idea), Cunneyworth used Leblanc on the 3rd line (a better idea). Both coaches basically sat the 4th line on the bench for the entire 3rd period.

Rolling 3 lines, with Darche on the 3rd line, plus a lot of PK time means that Darche will get a lot of ice time. It's not a big deal. Unless someone thinks Noki, Blunden or Weber (?) should have played there instead.

As soon as one of Gomez, Gionta or Moen comes back, Darche gets downgraded to the 4th and everyone can stop complaining.
