Switch up Emelin and Cube if you'd like, but playing Emelin with a fill-in 6D worries me at the moment, so I'd go with my first suggestion.
Wouldn't mind seeing Subban - Emelin and Markov - Gorges

Markov pinches a lot while Gorges plays back and more defensive so they'd be a good fit. Emelin goes in deep sometimes with the puck or usually dumps it in, if ever he gets caught I'd be comfortable with Subban racing back to cover him rather than it being Markov cause Markov would lose that footrace as he has many times this season.
