Rupp-Mitchell-Feds (it's not the best 4th line ever but it's also not the worst. Man, Blair Betts would look nice down there about now. Well a healthy Blair Betts... Was it this trio that was playing well in game 6?)
The matchups are going to be the most important thing. Home ice/last change should be a big advantage.

Hunter will be looking to get the Brouwer lines out against Richards' line any chance he can get. We just need to hope that unit steps up.

I'd imagine the gameplan will be to get the Boyle line out against Ovechkin.

This could free the 2nd line up to do some things at even strength.
