Cunneyworth did cut his bench halfway through the third. The fourth line did not get a shift after that.
And by "fourth line", I really mean Leblanc-Eller-Kostitsyn. Trailing by one, Cunneyworth gave Blunden a shift with 2:24 to go. He left the ice with 2:04 to go. Apparently, this line was going to help tie the game.
This is Carbonneau management. Playing guys for "energy" rather than to win the game.
He probably thought they were playing a good game, which they were, except that they were mostly playing well against the B's fourth line. No clue as to why Eller's line got the least amount of ice tonight.
