It's a one game knee jerk reaction but with the way Boyle has played this year I'd be fine with sitting him for Kreider or Miller. Problem is that you lose the one thing he's good at...PKing

If Callahan comes back Thursday I'd shake things up a bit and go with something like

Hagelin-Richards-Nash
Gaborik-Stepan-Callahan
Kreider-Miller-Pyatt
Powe-Halpern-Boyle

The "big line" just isn't cutting it now, they get trapped in their own zone too much and are too likely to make too many passes and turn the puck over offensively. Could even switch Callahan and Pyatt if you don't like that setup.

edit: I think the problem with the big line and sometimes the power play is that everyone expects the other guy to make the play, but the other guy is always trying to pass the puck but doesn't have anything to pass too because everyone is standing around waiting for something to happen
