Cooke - Sutter - Dupuis
Morrow - Jokinen - Adams/Vitale

That's a great shutdown 3rd line and a legitimately dangerous 4th line. That also makes a Sid or Geno double shift turn into Morrow - Sid/Geno - Jokinen. That's our "4th" line.
This would be my ideal situation. Morrow goes to line two or four. No 3rd line duty for him. It's just not conducive to his play.

Can you imagine Morrow-Malkin-Vitale on the forecheck

I would worry about Bennett new to the playoffs normally but with the amount of experience we paid for he should have some great mentors.

The D should keep simple pairings.

Orpik-Martin
Eaton-Letang
Murray-Niskanen
Despres/Bort
