But we know for tonight that Iginla-Malkin-Neal is happening.

The lines in practice signal that Sid is centering Dupuis and Iggy and Malkin is centering Kunitz and Neal. Yet during the games, he keeps putting Iggy on Malkin's left.

It makes zero sense. The only logical explanation is that Iggy said he came here "to play with the two best players in the world" during his press conference, and Dan is making sure he does every game, but preparing for the playoff lines during practice.

Or he just chooses to be as illogical as possible.
This is so confusing isnt it. Like most on here, I pray the bolded is correct.

If Iggy is to be on Geno's LW in the playoffs, why haven't they been practicing together? This is either a very bad sign (ie. Bylsma will play Igy on Geno's LW in the POs with no practice time together), or a good sign (Iggy and Dupuis to play with Crosby come POs).
