Bourque and Desharnais also played well and Leblanc wasn't the only one generating scoring chances on that line. The logic behind handing Desharnais's line that icetime is mainly due to the fact that our 4th line couldn't be relied upon and was given practically no icetime. Sure, they could've given more icetime to Plekanec or Eller's line, but that's not THE reason we lost the game.
