NYR win in a track meet tonight 5-3 with an empty better
The transition game also looked good when Boyle out of the lineup, and Richards was in.

The problem is not Richards, its line combinations. Last game, Boyle was playing with Powe and Pyatt with one objective: keep the puck in the offensive zone. That line was not fast but it was good at what it was designed to do..

There was more complementary play among the lines. Miller, who can skate, was paired with Callahan and Gabs. Two players that both keep up with him.

There was much more fluidity among our players and no one slowing each other down.
