Latendresse-Smith-Alfredsson can be quite a gritty line. Not the fastest, obviously, but when they get the puck in deep, they're dangerous. I watched that line single-handedly pin Boston in their own end every shift last game, in the first period.
Daugavins-Zibanejad-Neil can also be gritty and tough. Ziba has been a bit disappointing this season, but the line as a whole shot not be overlooked.
Fourth line, well. It's a fourth line.
Their defense is what I don't get. They've been good but looking at those pairings, HOW are they playing so good. I do like Methot-Gonchar but on top of that... what?
Lehner-Bishop can steal a game at any given time.
The team as a whole, if they are working as hard as they have been over the last month, can beat any team - or at the very least, make it real tough.
I was at the Boston - Ottawa game and Ottawa looked awful. Boston played a terrible first 20 mins or it wouldn't have been a game. Alfredsson is terrible and that whole line was dysfunctional. Turris is obviously skilled but too soft on the puck to be a consistent threat.
I have no idea how they're winning.
Methot is very underrated....he's the only one who impressed me
