Pacioretty - Plekanec - Gionta

Yakupov - Eller - Leblanc
Moen - White - Staubitz

If I was coach, I would have split up DD/Cole/Pac to end the season though. I would have put Bourque with Desharnais and given Pacioretty (or Cole) to Plekanec. I would have tried get two lines going at ES.
This should have happened way before the end of the season. It was clear quite early on that, no matter how good they are, they weren't making us win games. So what was the point in keeping them together?
At the very least, a new combination could have been tried on the PP.
But no attempt to make any changes were made, not even on the PP, which is quite troubling to be honest.
