Personally, I liked seeing Eller and Patches on the same line. Two big bodies, both with strong possession games. Having Eller seemed to inspire Patches, who laid out some nice hits throughout the game. They were also great on the forecheck.

I found Briere worked well with them as well. His vision and passes complement their play.

While Plek will need to get used to playing with the two Kids, I think he has the speed and agility to make them more explosive than Eller can. The line looked great on the rush. Galchenyuk can also learn a lot from seeing Plek's two-way game down the middle.

As for Bournival, I've always liked White, but Bournival is on another level. He rejuvenated Prust and Moen. The 4th line looked solid all game, and Prust was rewarded with a goal.
