Kimmo/Lilja
Carle/Coburn
Kubina/Gus

As long as Lilja stays back and just focuses on playing D those pairings could work to beat the Pens team. The Flyers game is more on them having puck control and keeping the puck away from the other team. The forwards need to keep the puck moving and keep control.

Briere is the one that we need to step up this game. Briere steps up and the team will win.
Unfortunately briere can't play defense. He holds essentially no weight in that factor. This team can't play defense. Briere could score 4 goals tomorrow and it won't matter unless the defense can learn how to play the game in 48 hours.

Coburn-Timonen
Carle-Lilja
Kubina-Gus/Bart

Are you kidding me?

Very worried about this teams ability to stop anything whatsoever. No goaltending, and even less defense.

I can honestly say that wednesday nights game was the worst defensive hockey I've ever seen an NHL team play and I've been watching and playing hockey for 20 years.
