IMO, TM is trying to play a matchup game with Couture, JT, Marleau and Pavs. When he goes Marleau/Pavs and JT/Couture, he is trying to put pressure on teams with only one defensive stopper pair. Shooting for balanced offense between his top lines. When TM does Marleau/JT/Pavs, TM is going for an overwhelming first line.
