Both guys were out to lunch for much of the night. Klein's one saving grace was his incredible assist on our first goal. After that, he plain scared me when he was on the ice.

Josi, too.

Time to split them up with Gill and Bouillon. Neither one of them looked stellar, but they were also the only two D men who weren't a minus.

I'm officially on the Bouillon bandwagon. Dude has brought it during the playoffs. I feel more comfortable with him out there than almost anyone else on D.

For the time being, I think it's also time we blow up the Leggy/Rads line...which in turn will...blow up every other line.

A. Kostitsyn--M. Fisher--A. Radulov
G. Bourque--D. Legwand--P. Hornqvist
S. Kostitsyn--N. Spaling--M. Erat
C. Wilson--P. Gaustad--M. Halischuk

Roll the top 3 lines at almost even time. 15-18 minutes. Roll the 4th for about 10-12. Keep everybody fresh.

This should even out the speed, defensive responsibility, toughness/grit, and playmaking/finishing (well, maybe Spaling finally puts one through when Erat and Kostitsyn get tired of passing it back and forth).

Powerplay:
C. Wilson--M. Erat--A. Radulov
G. Bourque--D. Legwand--P. Hornqvist

Wilson is wasting his time playing if he doesn't see the power play.

Penalty kill:
Don't mess with it. Most functional part of our team at the moment.

On D.

R. Suter--S. Weber
H. Gill--R. Josi
F. Bouillon--K. Klein
