The pairing of Scandella-Falk has not been very good the last 2 games, but I can't really blame either player. Both are more comfortable on the left side and with a partner who's more involved in the play. Its better than Stoner-Falk were though the game prior. I think its pretty telling though that last night in OT Scandella played alongside Gilbert, indicating that Scandella is our 4th best d-man right now but Yeo needs someone to split up Stoner from Falk. Which one of Stoner/Falk stays in when Spurgeon's healthy? I think it depends on who his partner will be. Spurgeon's got more experience with Falk while Stoner's practiced and played a game with Brodin and has more experience with Gilbert. Scandella's got experience with all our RD as well on the other non top-pair(lots of last season on the matchup pairing with either Spurgeon or Gilbert).
