Wow, surprised to see the negative reaction on the Legwand change. I have a different take. We shortened way up on the bench for Game 3. Why? We didn't have a use for the 3rd/4th lines. However, putting Legwand with Hali and Yip is a good cycling line that could score. Hali is a shooter and is money in close. Moreover, they can play defense.

Meanwhile, Spaling can watch Rads skate around with the puck and occasionally pass it to AK just as well as Legwand. The defense on that line isn't worse and Trotz just created a 3rd line thant can actually be rolled out to even the workload.

We have to find a way to use our superior depth- this may not be the only or best option but it's an option.

There is no way Trotz is demoting Legwand for one bad game. If anything, it's a promotion of Yip and Hali.
