We've been so much more effective in the games where our top 9 is filled with top 9 players. Sounds obvious, but it's rarely something we've been able to see in recent years and have a chance to really have it for once.
I could see Bourque being healthy by PO meaning that either Galchenyuk or Prust gets demoted to the 4th line. If there's an injury to the top 9, Prust/Chuckie moves back to the 3rd. Dumont played pretty well while he was up here and I can definitely see him being played on the wing on the 4th line after the TD (when the roster could be more than 23 players).
