Was never done and don't tell me Bouillon is the answer in helping him.....
wasn't sure what was going on...but I thought I saw subban beaulieu paired together near the end of the 3rd.
I think they might go with markov/gorges and try them as a shutdown pair. maybe I'm just hopeful...but that d had a hard time generating much, and our breakout wasn't where it usually is. ovy's line was pretty dominate against subban/gorges.
that's why emelin's presence is severely missed, tonight anyways, was a guy playing top line minutes, alongside markov, who was extremely physical and good at it. that's a hard combo to find.
