Maybee so, but they were still tied, and we have all seen this team have slow starts and turn it on in the second period. There was really no reason to completely obliterate the lines like he did. Maybee move switch Havlat with Couture or something like that, but he went' full ron wilson slot machine line combo system. Some of the lines early in the second period included

Mitchell-Desardin-Clowe <-----Later replaced by Pavelski
Ferriero-Couture-Moore

TM wen't way too crazy with the line shuffling, move a couple of players around sure, but don't have every line full of players that have never played games with eachother before.
