If as you say, every game that you have a tough 15 minutes and go down 2-0 you shuffle the deck...and then the next game, you go down 2-0 and you shuffle the what point do you wonder what the lines should be at all?

The players never get an opportunity to find a familiar set. They don't get a chance to find their stride. The team beat up on the Habs, tied a tough Ottawa team and played one dog against the Leafs which they dominated but Tommy couldn't shut the door. When was the team in so rough shape that they needed to be shaken up? don't see my point, don't care to, and you want the lines to be the continuous shaken, not stirred, martini that MacT serves up every couple of games.

That is fine. I think it sucks.
